1. Jo Sharp gansey: half a sleeve to go.
2. GAAA afghan: still have the same 3 inches done. Still love it and want to work on it, though.
3. Fair Isle mitten: haven't touched it; still in love with it.
4. Uru aran pullover: haven't touched it. Don't like it. It is coming out too big (despite the fact I designed it myself). It feels hard and too dense. I wish I had used a different yarn to make it. It is not too late to unravel it and start afresh with a gentler yarn. When I pick it up again to work on it more seriously, I'll have to make the big decision: forge ahead, or unravel?
5. Plain Jane crewneck: it is truly awful. Awful color, awful hand, awful design, awful awful awful. It has become a permanent UFO and will definitely be unraveled. The yarn will be given away to Victoria, who actually lived for a while in Romania and is intrigued by the fact that the yarn is from the Carpathian mountains. I will give it to her gladly and will not care if she, in turn, throws it all away.
6. I somehow forgot to add in the following items:
6a. a Hanne Falkenberg "Pagode" jacket, three-fourths done, gorgeous, and I need to finish it so I can wear it to the SPA in Portland Feb. 20 - 22. I've been working on it on Wednesday nights during knitting circle. It's just garter stitch, deceptively simple but with a clever design and pretty colors.
6b. a Seacolors (Nanny Kennedy) gansey, which I have been falling in and out of love with for a couple of years. I currently like it and will probably finish it this year.
6c. a yellow cardigan in a sport weight merino/silk/cashmere yarn, with diamond cables and a pretty smocking stitch, cover of Interweave Knits last spring, I think. I don't remember how much is done on it, but I think the back is done and one and a half fronts as well. I put it aside to do something else, and I had also gotten discouraged with the size, I think it will be too small. But with any luck and with some heavy handed blocking I think it may fit ok after all. If I ever finish it. I still love it and want to work on it. Hopefully it will be done this year.
7. There are a variety of hats, scarves, dolls, socks, etc. that are all in various stages of development.
I was comparing last year to this year as far as finished objects went. Last year at this time I had completed, remembering off the top of my head, a pair of kids' mittens, and child's hat, and a pair of socks And probably more. So far this year I have completed: NOTHING. Nothing at all. Not one item yet. And January is nearly over. I think my knitting is slowing down considerably.
