As I was pawing through one of my stash baskets, I discovered my oldest UFO: an intarsia vest that I had knit for my ex-husband in colors that now make me cringe a bit. I had been knitting for about a year when I started it, and it's not bad, if you don't mind turquoise. You know my gauge issues. Well, before I added the edging around the entire thing, I had F. try it on. It maybe would fit a 7-year-old. I never finished the edges, although I'm proud to tell you that I did weave in the gabillion and seven ends.
So, upon the sight of this object, I thought that I should really finish it. After the Jaywalkers, of course. Although I'm not a practicing anything right now, Lent begins next Wednesday. I've decided that one thing I will do during that time is to finish this UFO, maybe a few others, all of which seem to need just a little bit of time.
Anyone want to join me on the UFO project? I thought that in celebration of Mardi Gras on 2/28 we could bring in our oldest UFO's to show off. Then, sometime soon, show them again as FO's.
Any seven-year-olds who want a vest?!
