UFOs....confession time...sigh

Well I have not done too well at finishing off some of the things I have started of late. One exception to this is the lovely Seraphina shawl that I started a few weeks ago. Although, having said that.... there are still ends to sew in and some blocking to do but in essence it is finished (that's what I keep telling myself anyhow!)

I did knit a lovely baby jacket for my boss's new daughter but she is now 6 months old and I have yet to add buttons! Of course it's way too small now! Have started a baby blanket and I can feel the ennui striking as it's a pretty mundane knit.... I really should stick to socks! I generally finish those.

What else is unfinished?
  • A shawl
  • Another baby jacket
  • A knitted bag
  • A crocheted top (started almost 2 years ago now!!)
  • A pirate hat
The shawl is a bit of an issue. It should be lovely and it should be a joy to knit but I've shoved it in a bag and put it on one side for now. It just looks awful. I'm assured that the miracle of blocking will sort all of that out but frankly I'm a bit concerned.

See what I mean.... I'm just not sure about it.

Well better get back to the blanket that I 'just had to make' but which is now becoming a bit tedious!!

The shawl looks good! Blocking does work miracles, just try pulling it a little and it'll look really nice.

Please perservere with the shawl - the rewards are always worth it!!
