Four finished or frogged.

Over the weekend I finished or frogged four projects. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel! By the time the Christmas knitting was done, I was feeling used up and a little overwhelmed by projects. I had a wicked case of startitis brewing, too. All of my projects seemed to require too much of me. I started knitting the Celtic Tote from the Winter 2007 Issue of Interweave Knits. I started a star shaped baby blanket. I wanted to start a sweater for me and a sweater for the husband, and almost anything where I could get yarn and needles to connect. Startitis! Too many projects!

But look! Finished Celtic Tote.

And finished Ninja Turtles! (Okay, they need eyes, but I need to buy matching black buttons, apparently. He's playing with them eyeless.)

They go with Michelangelo from Christmas.

I also frogged (rip it, rip it) the Mystery Stole III. I decided I didn't like it enough, with wing, without wing, symmetrical or not, to finish it. My trusty ballwinder aided greatly in the unraveling process. Beads went flying, cats went chasing, laceweight went winding. One more project taken care of.

Do you feel overwhelmed with projects? Do you have four you could finish or frog? Let me know about it. (Any kind of project can be frogged. If you decide it's not worth it, clean it up, cross it off the list and move on.)

Tomorrow, my spinning wheel!

Very pretty purse, and, um, nice turtles?

Hmm, I had a frogfest last year. This year, I need to finish my Swedish wool sweater along with all the single socks from the BMFA sock club. As for frogging, I might frog the Halloween Mystery Shawl....It's a PITA, but it's hiding and being inobtrusive right now.

The purse turned out really well. Did you decide to line it? I'm curious about its insides.

I haven't had to frog much. It is mostly a case of working too slowly to want to move backward.

I love the blanket! And those turtles are too cute.

Love the purse and the star baby blanket is SO cool! I really love it, very different!

I am finishing a simple scarf for my babysitter, easy car knitting and have started a sweater vest for my son. Then there are the clogs I started and need to finish for my Mom. They were her birthday gift and her bday was last March!
