So my friend called me last month to yell at me for not blogging. "So you realize you haven't blogged since July 7th?" I was shocked. I was sure I hadn't blogged since sometime mid-June. Go Me!

So I put blogging on my to-do list. And every day it seemed to be one of the things that didn't get done, and was moved to the list for the next day. And for weeks I've carried this to-do around with me. I thought about doing it. But I played on Ravelry instead. I thought some more about doing it but I played on Facebook instead. And I went to the computer determined today was the day, but then I got sucked into Pinterest. (Side note: Join Pinterest and let me stalk your boards. I love Pinterest more than I love my Husband's dogs, but slightly less than I love ice cream.)

What else have I been doing?

Not much, just engaging in this little hobby of mine I like to call KNITTING!

I have been knitting like it is going out of style. Like I don't live in an environment whose weather is still in the triple digits. I'm knitting like I have half a prayer of being cold someday.

A girl can dream.

I have this stack of finished knits just waiting to be shared.

See I can finish something!

And I have this stack of knits that just need blocked and I can call them done.

See I can finish something, just not these

Yeah, there are exactly eleventy billion things in that pile. I pulled out one sweater that I had completely forgot I knit. How sad is that. I really should learn to love blocking.

And I have this stack of partially knit things that I have abandoned and will finish at an undetermined future date. I was going to gather them all up for a photo shoot. But everywhere I looked there were more UFOs. Getting them all together from all the random places I have them seemed like too much work. So instead I just photographed the one that was closest to me.

See I can finish something just not these either

The color in this photograph is only marginally related to the colors in real life. I never claimed to be a photographer.

As you can see I have knit my way through almost all of my meager stash.

This is an emergency.


Or I might be forced to finish a UFO. *gasp* *shock* *shudder at a fate worse than death*

Ha! Love this post!

I'm so curious to see what's in your FO pile, and quite smug that there are so many unblocked things in the other pile, for my pile of things to block is NOT as big (but was making me feel guilty!)

Re your comment on my blog... I also have a queue but I had to cull it at the weekend as it was onto 30+ projects and growing - ridiculous! And as for your shawl, I woild have to go with one you knit out from the top/centre because casting on a bazillion stitches is asking for trouble.

You have a great writing style, it's lovely to read - I may join your friend in nagging you if you don't post more often too :)
