1 Step foward 2 Steps back.

While waiting for Rogue to dry I decided to pick up something from the WIP pile to work on.

Cobblestone seemed like a good choice seeing as it is mostly done and I could do with another finished jumper with the weather we have been having.

So I picked up from where I left off. Or where I thought I had left off. - Attaching the sleeves to the body again.

This was when I realized what the problem with the sleeves had been before. Not that I had just knit one way too long but that one was knit a size M and the other was a size L. The super huge sleeve has been frogged and restarted.

It's raining again now and I am really wishing I had a few more of these WIP's finished.

What WIP have you had sitting around the longest?

A sweater from Lopi Lite yarn. It was in a Knitter's issue in Fall of 2001? Will it ever get done? Who knows. I can't stand Lopi Lite!

Must have to be my Luna Moth Shawl.
Been sitting in the I must block but too scared pile for the last 6 mths.

Wide collared jacket, I started it ages ago and I haven't got to the armholes yet. The worst is still to come, lots of ribbing on the sleeves and a ribbed collar/front band.

There's a jumper I nearly finished in 2003 around here somewhere. Do you count my mother's UFOs that she gave me? Because there's a vest she started for me in 1983...
