For those of you tuning in who are not knitters, in knit-speak a UFO is not an unidentified flying object, but rather an unfinished object. Yeah, I know the acronym is not exact, but deal with it. This week's blogstalking project is to post a picture of your oldest or longest-standing UFO, so here is mine:
I'm not entirely sure how old it is - to give you an idea, this laceweight wool from Knitpicks was purchased when Knitpicks first started selling their own yarn. Two years ago? I decided to try my hand at lace and soon found that I really don't have the patience for it. My dream yarn has to be an aran weight or worsted weight - because as pretty as laceweight wool is, the projects are way to fussy for me. I may change my mind later, but seeing as I have pulled this one of the project shelf and I haven't touched it in probably two years and it is only about three inches long I think it will be frogged toute de suite.
That being said, I *love* these needles. They are needles intended for children and are only 6" long. They are perfect for doing gauge projects because they just fit in your hands.
