My friend Cathy recently told me about a challenge that her sewing guild put out: to finish or repurpose your ufos (unfinished objects/projects) in 2012.
I really like the idea.
Since then I am walking through the house with a different perspective. I open closets and don't just get something, but I see ufos. Everywhere. The more I look the more I see and I am not even searching!

Closet in the hall...six on 2 of eight shelves.

So I am on it and I have started to pull them out. I am making decisions.
Some of them I don't remember why I never finished them, some I don't remember why I started them in the first place.

Take this Boteh scarf.

A clever and beautiful crochet pattern. I adore the yarn, my colors, super soft angora. Nice, right? But now that I turned on my honest inner ufo scanner... I'd never wear the darn thing!

One foot worth of Boteh undone, back into two balls of gorgeous angora yarn.

Since I did this, I have been onto two more projects, both of them almost finished by now.
Pictures and stories will come.
A great start into the coming year! It feels good, it feels sooo good!

  1. Hola Dag,
    heißt das, dass du jetzt durchs Haus läufst und alle Ufos zählst und eine Liste machst? Vielleicht verstehe ich nicht alles!!!
