Mission Possible Update (Adriana)

Back in January I announced that I was taking part in Mission Possible 2008, which was an attempt to finish UFOs and use up yarn that had been sitting around for too long. I've been making some progress on it and I thought it was time to report back.

My list:
1) Chevron Scarf - all done, just needs pictures taken
2) Red Merino from Vancouver - made into berets for Emma and myself
3) Make one shawl with stash yarn - done but only those on Ravelry can see it
4) Finish Mystery Shawl 3 - I tried, I really tried. I knit another 50 rows but then it started making me depressed so it's back in the box. I honestly don't know if I have it in me right now to finish it.
5) Make a Huggable Hedgehog - started it yesterday.
6) Knit a summer top that I'll actually wear - no progress yet though I think I've settled on making Kate Gilbert's Camellia.
7) Knit second Naive sock - 80% done! I should finish it on the bus sometime this week
8) Knit second Pomatomus - not yet
9) Play with Kid Silk Haze - DONE!
10) Use up purple Koigu from Christmas - done!

11) Use Grey Jo Sharp - made hats for my brother and his girlfriend
12) Finish the second Simply Lovely Lace Socks - done and gifted to someone with teeny feets!

So, for those of you keeping track at home, that 7 done, 2 in progress, 2 not started and 1 who knows (MS3).
Enough procrastinating for me. I need to go write a report on Leonard Bernstein's (of West Side Story) leadership abilities. Fun.

Nice Koigu socks!

I have given up on every Mystery Shawl I tried, usually before I cast on. I just don't wear lace.

Great socks!

Don't feel bad about bailing on MS3. I don't think I'll be taking part in a mystery project again, myself.

Great socks! Koigu is heaven on the toes, for sure!

I love the camellia sweater.

What's the story with the Mystery Shawl?

Adriana said...

Zoom, the Mystery Shawl was a phenomenon that swept the knitting world last summer in which a shawl pattern was gradually revealed piece by piece. I had fun in the beginning but it quickly became stressful and got shelved. I think it's beautiful so I wanted to finish it now but I'm just not feeling the love. Maybe next year :)
