Basket O' Shame

Rainy is inspiring me.

I have my own Basket o' Shame...projects that have been kicked to the side, rarely worked on. Here's my list:
Forest Green Man's Chemo Hat
ZYG Watercolor Boing!
Renata Tebaldi Diamond Fantasy Shawl
K3P3 Prayer Shawl-Blue Ridge Homespun

There are a couple of others down below in my 2009 OTN list, but both the Blue/Taupe/White ripple afghan and the Log Cabin blanket are long-term, cold weather projects, and I don't consider them something I've abandoned. The Magickal Earth Shawl is one that truly isn't OTN right now - I've knit the swatch, and that's OTN, but I made a critical error in the chart-reading. The swatch is going to come off the needles, and the project restarted when I'm ready, which isn't anytime soon, I don't think. And that ripple baby blanket? Well, he's not a baby anymore. It's time to frog it.

So, Rainy, I have 4 projects in my Basket o' Shame. That shouldn't set you back too far on the stitch markers! Thanks for starting this KAL!

That's not a bad list at all! When I think of all the projects I need to finish up...

Nice idea to show it all, but four isn't so bad. I have one long ago project that I don't admit to. ;-)

Four is great! I have to admit to feeling this sense of impending doom and "Oh dear GOD." when some of my participants had 30 or more UFOs on their lists! Hee! I'd better get beading. ;-D

Thanks for joining! I have ten on my list, btw, not counting a few that are headed for the frog pile.

i've been chipping away at my basket of shame. so far i've got two projects finished. right now, i'm fighting the urge to cast on for something new. it's a really evil urge.

My basket of shame is just going to stay uncounted for now but that's a clever idea! And only four WIP's for you? Impressive.

You are being a well-behaved knitter considering how much inspiration you soak up regularly.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
