Happy New Year everyone
Many years ago, when I was member of the Workshop Program Steering Group of the Online Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers, I invented the UFO month for January. What's better than beginning the new year by finishing some old projects. Unknowingly, I started a tradition and ever since the OLG celebrates the new year with UFO month.
During the sorting and hauling for the studio move, I found several unfinished objects. Mostly sewing projects I began, didn't get around or didn't know how to finish. Except for some actual clothes, I intend to have a look at all the others over time. There is no need to rush them. But - there is this one jumper.
It was started on our vacation 2014 and all looked well back then. I knit on it on and off (mostly off) and intended to finish it during our last vacation. Which I almost did. But the realisation that I didn't pack enough yarn paired with the intense sense of needing to finish it led to a really wonky thing. The body it alright, I guess but the arms? I mean ... too short and not the same size. So, I will rip them and knit them with more patience and calm. Let's see, if I can get this jumper working.
Because, it is quite nice otherwise.
The other project I intend on finishing this month, is not exactly an UFO. It is a jumper for DH I began in late October by spinning the yarn first. This one is nothing for the eye, DH wanted something big and comfy and sooofffttt. So he got a yak-silk-blend (yes, sometimes I indulge in this kind of luxury), spun soft and knit with rather large needles.
