UFO August!

With my lack of knitting in July, I knew I had to sign up for Jeanie’s latest project, UFO August. Do you have UFOs? Join us and get them done!

Here is my initial UFO list, but I might find some lurking in the corners over the next few days, so I’m waiting to post my final list over there. I will prioritize it then.

– Trek-Along socks: started in London, these socks have now seen London, Wales, Houston, Austin, and this weekend the first sock will meet the Yarn Harlot back in Austin. I will start the second sock next week while in the Ozarks. I might even finish it there!
– School Survival Clapotis: I “rewarded” myself with Lion & Lamb at the end of the school year. I’ve discovered that it is not a fun thing to knit if you are hot. I am past the half way point (I am using 4 skeins, not 3 to make it longer), so this should be done soon if I work on it.
– Lady Eleanor scarf/shawl: Just 30 more rows/sections of Entrelac to go. (In other words, a lot.)
– Tara’s “P” socks: will work on these in addition to the Trek-Along socks on my trip. Mmmm… Koigu.
– The Amazing Lace Sheep Shawl – sadly neglected, and I haven’t been doing my Amazing Laces posts either. I’m so bad. My shawl would probably fit a Barbie right now. Ok, maybe an American Girl doll if I blocked it.

Of course, I have the usual startitis right now. I look lovingly at my sock yarn and dream of other socks I want to knit. And I want to start my Eris sweater. Then there is that felted purse I want to make. But I must – MUST – finish all of the UFOs first.

My Amazing Lace Project is about the same size as yours. It’s supposed to go with my mom to an Alaskan cruise in two weeks, but I don’t think it’s going to make it. Maybe for their tropical cruise later in the year.
