Moaning about hot weather
Wrap yarn amount

UFO becomes FO

I've finally finished this piece of crochet that has been hanging around for, er, several years. Original intention was to make a triangular shawl; somewhere along the road, I changed my mind and undid the motifs, then joined them together again to make a rectangular wrap. It's so long ago that I can't even remember what I didn't like about the shawl! Needless to say, I'd joined the motifs and then run out of steam leaving the yarn ends dangling and the edging to deal with later.

I think I'm pleased with it, but I don't quite know what possessed me to make it in such a boring yarn! Usually, I like grey but the yarn looks really flat and dead in this colour. Anyway, the details:

Size 62 x 180cm

Yarn Jamieson and Smith's 2ply Shetland Lace Yarn in colour L54 (darkish grey) with a single stripe of bright purple in the edging. I'm not sure how much yarn I used; will weigh the wrap once it's dry.

I now have no more UFO's. On the needles are this (scroll down) - work has stopped until the weather gets cooler - and a pair of plain socks in Regia Mini Ringel. That's all; I feel very virtuous.

Want some of my UFO's?

I can't imagine ever being in such a position

I am rather amazed myself. I used to belong to the Serial Starters School of Knitting but never finished anything; these days I'm more reluctant to begin (or as some would say, less able to make a decision about what I want to knit)!

No UFO's? That's amazing! I wish I could get some of mine finished - I can resist anything but the temptation to cast on something new
(slightly modified quote from Oscar Wilde).

The shawl looks amazing. Love it.

Lovely wrap, although I'd have gone mad making something that large and that fine in that colour!! Well done on the UFO. I'm down to St Brigid and a sock on the needles... Have a newly fledged theory about quickish sock-gratification hurrying the rest of it along and quelling the urge to have too many things on the go...

I reckon it must be the two-for-the-price-of-one effect that does it. Looking forward to seeing St Brig when she's finished.
