I finished something this week! Can't begin to tell you how good that feels. I still have to knit for a book submission (actually, I am so behind with it I am beginning to worry they'll kick me off it...but I will put in a marathon and finish THAT and fedex it next week).
Anyway, I was looking for something the other day, like, say, yarn, and I found this UFO; a lap throw that I had stated about three years ago or so, while I still had the shop. It's a Jane Ellison pattern. It began with one kind of colorway (don't ask me about the number. I have no labels. It's probably discontinued). Then a customer needed more of that colorway, and I sold the yarn out from under myself. I began splicing other colorways into it, ones that had some colors in common with the first one. Then I must have gotten a little crazy because I abandoned it entirely. When I found it the other day, I realized I had three point five balls left that matched what was in the project, and said: Hey! I'm going to finish this thing.
The project I have for the book is the kind of project that needs my undivided attention. This here blanket I could knit while interacting with the world.
I still haven't washed or blocked it yet, but it's 38x46 inches.
