A different Kat designed the button. I will try to add it to my sidebar with a link to the post where Kat explains it all. Wish me luck, I haven't tried that trick on my blog yet. (If you have any tips, I'll take them)
Here are the rules that I copied from Kat's post.
1. Each month in 2007, find a UFO (unfinished object). This makes a total of twelve (12) for the year. You do not need to have a list of all twelve at the beginning of the year - you can go month by month if you'd like.
2. You have two options for that UFO:
a. Work on it. You don't have to finish it that month, if it's something big, but it must be added into your rotation of "active" projects. A token row or two does not count. ;-)
b. Frog it. If you don't want to work on it anymore, rip it out and move on.
3. Post on your blog each month (or comment if you don't have a blog)(at katwithak's blog I guess) about the project you're resurrecting.
4. Everyone who finishes will be entered into a prize drawing. And even if you don't win anything, you'll have twelve fewer languishing projects making you feel guilty!
So, here are some pictures of my UFOs and even a FO!
On my sofa I have many UFOs, I have listed them before. There are actually a couple more added, but I'll tell all y'all about them, month by month. There are more than 12. They actually fill the sofa. See me blushing?
The first one I am getting back to work on is my mitten. I've had one done since December 1st, I think. The other one was started the first day, and that was it! I'm going to finish it. Tomorrow or so, I bet. (hehe ~ We'll see won't we.)
Then, here are some pics of the soaps in socks I am making for my etsy shop. I am loving making these. They are fun, and I can try out patterns on a small scale. Three done, one close, and eight or so to go.
Bah- Bahm-Ba-Da! (That's me tooting my own horn)
Here is my pinwheel! The blankie is done. All the ends woven and everything. Except for measuring the finished size. The pinwheel blanket is my first FO of 2007. Sorry if the pics aren't great. The finished project is, I swear!
The last picture shows it with a little hat I knit for the baby, and the pattern and yarn for another little hat. Can a kid ever have enough hats?
I did say that I'd give a review of my KnitPicks Options, after I finished the blanket. So far, I love them. I haven't had any problems with the set, except that it should have more needles with it! (I need a 13 for a pattern. hehe) They should also have a little adapter so that you can connect the cords together. My friend Carrie has a needle set that does that. I love the flexibility of the cord especially! That's the best. I've been using them for my soaps, doing the magic loop with them. I love the magic loop, and this flexy cord is perfect for it.
I also wanted to say "Thank You!" to everyone who left such nice comments on my last few posts. My mom was so thrilled with all of the nice things everyone had to say about the puppets.
I am going to actively work on those UFOs, and WIPs. I've never joined any knit alongs because I'm always afraid I won't finish, or I'll let somebody down (if there were a trade involved or something), but this one is for me. I am going to do it! I'm going to be one of those people who have project numbers in the single digits! LOL!
Time to go do stuff, and then knit! Tomorrow the kids finally go back to school, and I'm hoping to get a little "me" (knitting) time.
Hope you all get some knitting time, too.
a little p.s. Congrats to g-girl on her 100th post! And go see her little niece, what a cutie!
