The 6 projects left still haven't been completed. Yarn has been divied up for different project. My 3 balls of Cotton Ease have been supposed to be made into a Market Bag, then a Light and Lively Tank and finally what it should be soon, a Ribbed Lace Bolero. I still haven't done the Fishie Purse, Homespun pillow or Tioreg bag, and the Microspun has been assigned to different projects. I've purchased way too much too yarn and my "to do" list is expansive. Finding this was pretty funny; one time I didn't have an overflowing stash and had time to do these projects before getting sidetracked and buying more yarn for a project I wasn't going to do for a year. I've gotten better though. One of my 2009 resolutions is when I DO buy yarn, do the project right away instead of hoarding it. And it's been working. I bought two skeins of Bernat's Soft Boucle for a pink hat and scarf set to go to my aunt who has just been diagnosed with breast cancer. I've been working on it instead of setting it aside. Besides, it's probably cold in PA right now and what will she do with it in June? I only have about two more inches to do on the hat, then I'm ready to begin the decreases, and my mom is almost finished the scarf. I think I'm going to add a knit flower to give it girly flair. I've also used this yarn to begin my Traveling Scarf Swap scarf. I CO 30 stitches and did a simple basket weave pattern for 5 inches. I can't wait until August (!!) to receive the finished project. I requested all pinks, so it's going to be amazing. This is also going to be a great stash busting project for me.
I've been working really hard to get my WIPs finished so I can move on with the stash busting. I think I have like 7 WIPs floating around the house in various stages of completion, most are almost halfway finished. I really need to get working, especially on my friend's birthday present as her birthday is on the leap year and she's abroad in China so it's going to take like two weeks to get there.
