Finishing Projects

I have this terrible tendency to start projects and not finish them. When I went digging through my mostly packed boxes of yarn and projects (I was supposed to have moved months ago, but life prevented me from doing so) I came to realize just how many projects I start and don’t finish. There was one in particular I was looking for because I wanted to finish it up. It took me an hour of looking through boxes and bags before I found it. And in the process I found some 10+ other unfinished projects.

I’m hoping to get some of these projects finished over the coming days, in between all the new stuff I need to get started on.

Today I spent most of the day finishing up the knit monster twins. Their faces are glued on, and last thing I need to do is add some threading along the edges of the felt to keep those edges from coming up. One of the funniest photos I took was of the book and box smashing their faces with their legs sticking out.

Since all the knitting was done, I started up on another monster which is turning into a much cuter thing than I expected. The twins and the new one are for the kids of a friend (the older sister can’t get nothing just because of the new babies, right?!). After I finish up this monster I’m starting on WendyKnits’ Summer Mystery Shawlette.

I’m kind of excited. I’ve never participated in a mystery anything with regard to knitting, so this will be a fun project. Not to mention that I’ll get to use some of my stash yarn (since I have SO much of it).

I’ll share photos of all the monsters once mom, dad and babies have been able to see them all. Until then, I’ll try to get some photos of the other UFOs I’m getting finished.
