Two down!

I'm *trying* to get old projects finished. I'm notorious for starting something, putting it away for even a day when someone comes to visit, and forgetting about it... Sometimes for years. I've got so many unfinished projects, it's unreal. So, I'm forcing myself to finish old things before I start new ones. I haven't been very good at sticking to the "start no new ones" thing, as I did make my son's Halloween costume (but I did finish it!) and I did start another afghan, but I DID finish 2 other afghans first. Check them out!

I kind of had to finish this one... I gave my cousin an afghan as a high school graduation present and promised her younger sister I'd do the same for her. She's graduating in June, so I had to get cracking!

And this one is basically a scrap afghan... My MIL gave me about 5 large trash bags FULL of yarn that she's not going to use. Most of it must be leftovers from other projects... Lots of single 3 oz skeins. Anyway, I don't know what I'm going to do with it. Probably donate it to Project Linus or something. It's bright and cheery. Smile

The first one had been sitting around for at least 6 years and the 2nd one for at least 2 years. I figure, if I can finish 2 old ones for every new one, I will eventually get through them all! Blum 3

Woohoo for finishing old projects!!!

And I really like both of those! That second one is a cool idea for using up extra yarn.

*laugh* It's not really fluorescent... Just orange. But knowing DH's family, it was probably something to do with killing Bambi's mommy. :puke:

I can totally sympathize with UFO syndrome....i'm up to my ears in UFOs.

Both of these came out really nice! The scrap one has quite a nostaligic look to me, reminds me of something I would have found in my older siblings' room when i was a little kid Lol
