Good Use Number 1 for a UFO

Dear Fellow Knitters,

I know you have one somewhere. You know what I mean..... a UFO. My method for absolving guilt about a UFO is to simply turn a lemon into lemon aid. Mr. Puffy actually gave me this idea (must give credit where credit is due). Here's what you do. Bind off all stitches no matter what stage your project is in. Take any unused skeins and place them in your "new" stash pile. Then take your various pieces of knitting over to your pet's bed. Lay those pieces in the pet bed and consider how soft and cozy it will be for your pet to enjoy. Mr. Puffy loves his bed (napping is his top hobby) and currently reclines on an assortment of extra fine merino (Rowan Design - way off guage), wool/mohair blend (felted bag not ment to be), and some Anne (Schaeffer Yarn) that was an ill considered choice for a scarf. We are both much happier.

Not a bad idea!

And thanks for the comment on my blog! I only recently joined the CA knitters ring too, so it's nice to "meet" some of the other members.

Hi Claudia - I used #2 on my Bird of Paradise - I tend to be a tight knitter and generally use #2 no matter what. Can't wait to see what you have so far:) And thanks for stopping by my blog and leading me back to yours! Take care!

Very inventive! I'm betting my cats would be thrilled to have a bad of yarn. Oh boy.

You have beautiful FO's below! Love the Rowena cardi especially.
