Unfinished Business

There are a couple of unfinished projects in my knitting bag that I want to complete before I start anything new. I began knitting both of these last spring and for no particular reason, they were set aside and forgotten.

First up is the Harvey Kimono from Natural Knits.

I had completed the back and one side of this cute wrap-around sweater before it was abandoned. Yesterday I decided to pick up where I left off. I learned the hard way that it pays to keep notes on all knitting, even the projects you think you will finish up quickly. I thought I remembered the needles I started this sweater with and the size I was knitting. I discoverd I was wrong on both counts. So I knit most of the day, but made little progress. Lesson learned.


The second unfinished knit is a very nice reversible cabled-rib scarf called Steam. I think I kept better notes on this one. I'll find out soon enough.

In case you're wondering, I finished Matt's Mac Hat. Pictures will be up soon.

    Is it the new year? I keep thinking I should finish up a few of my UFOs! I'm afraid I didn't keep good notes either.

    Great start on the spinning! I look forward to seeing what comes off the wheel.

  3. Both projects are beautiful ones! Like you, I have more than one unfinished project kicking around that I hope to get finished before starting something new :-) We'll see if they can keep my attention better this time :-)

  4. I need to remember to keep better notes, too. Can't wait to see that scarf, it's such a nice color!

  5. I love the red of the scarf. I have several knitting projects that don't seem destined to make it off the needles.
