Finished that project, blocked it, wound a hank of Malabrigo, went looking for my other size 5s for it…

And found the second pair in a UFO.

Abandoned projects are often handy things when you want knitted gifts fast. I looked it over, saw what had stopped me, figured out a work-around, and an hour later, bam! Done! New FO!

That one had just needed a little motivation, is all.  Wish I could do everything that fast.  (Casting on…)

Knit on. I’m kinda’ hoping my mojo is visiting you; when it returns it should be smarter and kinder!

how cool to find a UFO and turn it into a PIP (project in process) and at just the right time!

UFO? Unidentified flying object? Unidentified Foolish object? Unidentified Finnish Object? Unidentified Fragrant Object? Unidentified Fabulous Object? Unidentified Finished Object?

Or worse, just finishing up a UFO or two; distracted; casting on while other UFO’s stand by.

Agreed. UFO’s that have learned to behave can be great for a feeling of accomplishment. 🙂

Sometimes it takes one of my UFO’s two or three tries, but it is always fun when they take off and are suddenly complete.
