This week I have decided to work on my UFOs. (that's UnFinished Objects, for you non knitters). I am up to the edging on my Frost Flowers and Leaves shawl. I am also back working on my Starfish Shawl from Just One More Row. I haven't worked on these since last fall.
I also want to finish my Mystery shawl 4. I am on the 4th repeat of clue 4. I will probably do at least one more repeat.
I figure, if I get these finished, then I will feel less guilty about all the new projects I am starting. OK, who am I kidding....what guilt?
This is a good time to work on UFOs since I am on a yarn diet. Not allowed to buy anymore yarn till at least January. Donations accepted. LOL. Will knit for yarn. LOL
Happy knitting all and God Bless....Colette

Not A Nerd!?

Well, I took the test (see sidebar) and I am not a nerd! However, it also said I was not totally cool either.
I think it is bad enough that I took the test to find out. Get a life!

And the Winner is......

Martha from Ample knitters list.
Sorry it has taken me so long to post. Life (and knitting) seem to get in the way. I decided on this colour scheme and ordered the eggplant from I wanted to wait to get the colour and get a photo. In the mean time I started knitting it with the colours I had. When I got the eggplant I took a photo (or thought I did) and then had to wait fro my daughter to put it on the computer for me. We then went camping for a week. We just got back and now we can't find the photo we took. I decided to post without photo and will add that when we take another one.
If martha wants to contact me with her particulars we can pick a ball of yarn from my stash to send for the prize.
It was hard choosing what colours to use, everyone had such great ideas. I can see that more than one sweater is going to have to be made with all these ideas, but one for now.
