Revenge of the UFO

....... aka stashdiving is dangerous for your health.

It seemed such a good idea at the time, evaluating my stash. I definately have enough yarn to keep me in knitting and crochet projects for at least the next year. (My wallet is definately breathing a sigh of relief) The only thing is, I discovered a whole new group of UFO's lurking at the bottom of the pile! Some of which I'd completely forgotten actually starting. So here to shame myself into actually doing something about them are the new batch. The question now is, frog or finish?
Afghan squares in assorted leftover blues. The motif is "Willow" from Jan Eaton's 200 Crochet Blocks book.Stripey stashbusting jumper for the Mighty Midget.Pale blue stole using motif from Hip to Crochet. (If I remember right the original pattern was for a scarf.)Pink (fake) mohair lace wrap cardigan. (What on earth was I thinking with this one?!)oh, and a crochet shawl.These are of course on top of my unfinished bayerische socks, Ivy, Komi mittens and that hairy felted tote. Not to mention various design ideas that I'm playing with. Gulp, I'd better get busy!

O, that's quite a lot! And as for potential frogging: nothing worse than working on something you don't like anymore. And frogging means you will have more yarn, without spending money (well, that's my excuse! Sounds better than "i'm too thick to understand this pattern so frogging was the only way")

My rule for me is; if I have forgotten the thing is there or that I even started it, it gets frogged. BUT if it's a UFO after a year and I still hear it calling to me (yes, poor neglected Stormwater Shawl, I know you are there...!!), then I should try to finish it! :)
