WOW and THANKS!

Well, I must say that UFO August was a HUGE success!!! Just LOOK at how many UFO's were converted to FO's! Me, well I ran into technical difficulties (that's my story and I'm sticking to it!) and only finished one UFO but did work on the others without casting on for anything new until the VERY end when I (sort of had to) cast on for a sock to take with me to a convention. Any way you look at it, as long as we made some progress on some of those pesky UFO's, we're all winners.

Speaking of winners, I need for all who particpated to leave me a comment under THIS post letting me know the totals of how many UFO's you completed during UFO August. I know that many of you already posted this in the blog as a separate post, but if you could re-post it as a comment under this post, it will be much easier for me to get everybody's names entered into the drawing. We'll give everybody a week to post their numbers and then draw two names to give away two prizes. The first prize will be a skein of Sweet Feet sock yarn donated by Hill Country Yarns and the second prize will be Ashley Paige's book, Sexy Little Knits.

We will definitely have another UFO August next year and maybe even try a UFO March so that we can finish up our winter UFO's before plunging into our spring knitting. For now, be sure to check out Manda's Start It Up September for those who are about to cast on for new projects (um, that would be me!). Leave her a comment letting her know you'd like to participate and she'll get you hooked up.

Once again, thank you to all who played along with UFO August and remember, if we worked on any UFO's we're all winners!

I started with eight items. I finished five and frogged three, so my ufo list is completely gone.

One finished object (unless you count the pair of socks I started and finished, then two).

I finished three real UFO's, and thirteen felted roses for pins. Do those count?

I'm counting 3 of my finished projects. Two washcloths and a lace scarf.

I'm not counting the Teddy Bear sweater I made for a class. I don't think of it as an FO. I also made a felted cell phone case for my Mom, but it was so quick and easy I don't really count it as an FO either.

I got more than halfway done on Mon Petit Chou, which is great! Maybe would have finished it if I hadn't also started a new WIP. Sigh. I made only a little progress on my Seraphim Shawl, but that's better than none.

I started out with 10 UFOs. Six became FOs, 3 were frogged, and 1 is still on the needles. Along the way I cast on and finished 3 dishcloths, but I suppose they shouldn't count.

I finished two, and frogged one that was unworthy of saving. Only one item left on the UFO list.
