What's your UFO policy?

How many UFO's (unfinished objects) do you have running around?

How many never started?

I counted 5 UFO's and 3 bought but never started.

Oddly enough, my UFOs are small projects, and my never started are big ones. I've got some great self striping yards I bough in germany for socks that I really need to get out!

I have an embarrasing amount of UFOs...EMBARRASSING.

I'm not even in my house to count but i can think of the following

ChunkyTweed baby cardigan
perfect pie shawl
Daisy Stitch Handwarmers
Bobble Baby Blanket
A tank top made of ribbon yarn that I haven't touched in YEARS
I just started a stuffed bunny toy, but that doesn't really count because that is my most active/recent project
Embroidered Handbag, which i dropped to start working on the bunny
I think there is a pair of baby booties in there that need to be seamed

I have yarn for two projects that I haven't started yet, plus i bought that sock yarn at the sheep and wool festival i went to.

And thats just me sitting here thinking about it. I bet there are at last one or two things I missed...at least. Honestly the list above was shorter than I thought it woudl be!

I really do finish things too though, just for the record. Biggrin I have plenty of FO's in my ravelry notebook...and even some others that I didn't include yet.

TMTC (too many to count).

Most of my stuff is in boxes out in the barn- I'm trying to get them organized-

I know I have 2 baby blankets I started for ds that are almost complete. I don't know what I'll do with those- save them for a gift? I spent hours on them, so maybe I"ll just finish them up and let him have them anyways.

I have a sweater that I"ll probably frog and turn into a lap quilt, using the yarn for squares/blocks to try out different lace patterns from the early 1900s, or cables, maybe even a celtic cable blanket, not sure yet.

lots of baby items that are almost complete, just need finishing, weaving in of ends and blocking.

I have a castle walls blanket for dh that I need to find the pattern book for, so I can finish. I also have no idea what size crochet hook I was using, so I'll have to sample up a swatch to figure it out.

I have a double knit/buffalo plaid blanket for dss in the steeler's colors

I also have a blanket I was working for dil in 49ers colors, but since they are getting divorced, I'll have to find a new use for that blanket, or the yarn.

I'm sure there are more, but those come to mind.

eta- those are just the knitting and crocheting projects that come to mind, not the sewing, or quilting, or scrapbooking, or weaving, or any one of many more crafts that I'm working on.

In spite of having a degree in chemistry and taking many upper division math classing, I don't think my counting skills are up to this question. Wink

there's lots of uses for that sock yarn too- scarves, hats, mittens, leg warmers, fingerless mittens, sweaters, stoles.. etc etc.

I have several skeins of sock yarn that are going to be turned into something else other than socks.

OH I thought you had done what I did- and realized you bought way more than what you really need Wink I decided I didn't need to make up EVERY set of sock yarn that I have for socks, so I've been looking around at other ideas recently for it.

Ummmmm, almost everything I've started so far is still unfinished :oops: Seems the only things I can finish are the hats that I can whip up in one day. I did finish a baby sweater but don't like how it turned out once I sewed all the pieces together Sad

I tell myself no new wools until I finish something, and sometimes that works.

I've got many many ufos, socks, shawls, a felt bag and many more unstarted projects.

I don't have many knit or crocheted UFO's, just one at the moment and I work on it once a week or so. I have a few patterns I want to make and I have a huge stash of yarn..but not the right kind for these patterns...lol

I am kinda in cross-stitch mode, I have a few from last year that are unfinished. My wolves was started almost 3 years ago and it's sitting in a paperbag waiting for me to get back to it. I have finished other ones in between then and now but that one just gets to me, it's huge and on black canvas..I hate black canvas...lol. I also have a cross stitch that I am making as a wedding present for my mom...too bad she got married last month and I'm still not halfway through it. I bought a new/old one at the beginning of the month and have been working on it most recently. I say new/old because I have bought it before and it was missing threads and when I contacted the company to request more they never got back to me, so I got tired of waiting and bought it again, and guess what...it has too many threads... I am not complaining cause now I can make 2 and give one away for Xmas.

I'm not too bad. I have 4 UFO's at the moment. 3 are active projects and one is snoozing...not sure when I will get back to it because it's really boring.

I have yarn for 2 more projects. But that's only because I bought a TON of yarn back in March from knitpicks. With a $50 order, shipping was free, so I bought enough yarn for about 8 projects.
