I could have sworn I had more UFOs than this, but these were all that I could find... :)
First off, my oldest UFO (since I've gotten back into knitting)
Pattern: Ribby Cardi in Grey, and the sleeves were going to be in a hunter green.
Started: About 2 years ago
Reason it remains unfinished: I got bored with the grey and the ribbing. The short straight bamboo needle had something to do with it, I believe.
Pattern: Joy from Kim Hargreaves
Started: About a year and a half ago
Reason it remains unfinished: I ran out of yarn, bought a new ball (unmatching dyelot) and RAN OUT OF YARN AGAIN! I believe something is also wrong with the sleeve cap shaping. (Ummm, it's only 4 inches long! YES SOMETHING IS WRONG!)
Pattern: Raspy from Rowan Denim People
Started: About a year ago
Reason it remains unfinished: All that stockinette! ::snooze:: I do have a back, and 1.75 sleeves completed.
Pattern: Turtleneck Shrug from Scarf Style
Started: About a year ago.
Reason it remains unfinished: During the move from Redmond, I've lost my Scarf Style book, so I have no idea how to do the second sleeves cap shaping. I'm too cheap to buy a new one because I know that I'll find it as soon as I buy a new one. Plus I had no circular needles when I started, so the sleeves are knit flat. All that's left is the sleeve cap for one sleeve and the turtleneck part.
Pattern: Drop Stitch Hoodie from the Spring Interweave Knits
Started: In April or May this year
Reason it remains unfinished: I got bored, plain and simple.
Pattern: Farrow Rib Gauntlets
Started: May 2006
Reason it remains unfinished: I needed the size 3 circular needle for something else I wanted to start! :)
Pattern: Etheral from Kim Hargreaves
Reason it languishes: Ugh, an entire sweater knitted on US3s? What was I thinking?!
Reason it remains unfinished: I messed up the lace, and need to rip back or rip it out. :-(
Superman Stripe Socks
Started: March, I think.
Reason it remains unfinished: I got bored with it.
Socks knitted on Ebony DPNs
Started: May or June
Reason it remains unfinished: I got tempted by other projects
Pattern: Mom Hug Sweater
Reason it remains unfinished: My mom's weight. She's lost so much, that I think I'm going to have to rip out the sweater and restart.
Knee High Socks made out of Silk Garden Light!
Reason it remains unfinished: I went on vacation.
Pattern: Kitty Cat Hat from Stitch and Bitch
Started: On the flight from Seattle to Philadelphia
Reason it remains unfinished: I'm not sure my gauge is right. The hat is for a co-worker, and I think it might be too small. I'm also planning on overdying this, as the Weaving Works didn't have the right colored yarn. My co-worker wants a pumpkin orange or an eggplant. I'm on the never ending Icord right now.
Pattern: Hourglass Sweater from Last Minute Knitted Gifts
Reason it remains unfinished: Because a girl has to work and sleep! :) I've been knitting on this pretty much exclusively. I've joined the body and sleeves to make the yoke.
I didn't have stitch markers when I started, so I used my rings! :)
I have one more sweater started, Fay, from Kim Hargreaves, but I wasn't able to take a picture of it. And I know of four pairs of socks that remained unfinished. (Kill Bill, Dragonfly, Firefly, and my first pair of socks ever!)
That brings my total up to...
