True Confessions, March 2007

Also known as WIPELE (Works In Progress Exceed Life Expectancy).

Okay, I want to finish stuff. In order to do that, I have to guilt myself into how many WIPs I actually have. The first step is admitting you have a problem.

  1. Baby Cardigan: Showed you that one yesterday. Needs some seams. And some pom-poms. And well, then there’s those ends.
  2. Mermaid Sweater: She’s soooo close. All the pieces are knitted. Shoulder and collar seams are done. Applied i-cord on front is done too. I attached one sleeve last night, and it went smashingly. Then I just have the i-cord on the sleeve cuffs and a few ends to take care of.
  3. Rockin’ Sock Club Kit #3: That one I started. I got through about 2 repeats on the cuffs. Then I picked it up again and knit a few more rows. And forgot that you’re supposed to alternate pattern row with a plain knit row. So now I have to figure out how to recover that one.
  4. Giant Green and White Secret Project: I got about 1/4 of the way done and then got stalled.
  5. Entrelac Tam: The main entrelac portion is done. Just needs a ribbed band.
  6. Felted Cat Toys: About half are knitted. None are felted.
  7. Grandmother Shawl: Needs to be blocked and fringed. Oh, and I promised I’d write up the pattern.
  8. Ribby Cardi: Back and one front finished. 2nd front almost finished. Then it needs sleeves.
  9. Stuffed Turtle Toy: About halfway through with the body.
  10. Geisha Wrap: Into the 3rd repeat. Of, oh, 8 or so? Maybe?
  11. Knit Flat Gloves: Most of one glove.
  12. Tiny Felted Sack: Started this one the other night because a friend wanted me to show her how to do it. So I had to have one I was working on as a demo piece.


  1. Chris:

    Wow. I feel so much healthier all of a sudden. ;)

  2. Telmah:

    Maybe you could re-sort the list in order of how close they are to being finished? Then tackle the almost-done ones right in a row, then you could marvel at how many things you’d be finishing lately.

    ((((Which would make room for starting new things…..)))

    I’d do the same - tackle the almost done ones first - some quick gratification!
