New/Old Finished(ing) Projects

Since I haven't actually finished the afghan yet, I shouldn't jinx myself but I'm starting to feel a little smug about finishing up an afghan I started in February. It's my own design based upon a windmill quilt design using the 3 colors of my daughter's equestrian drill team. I need it finished by the end of this month for them to use as a raffle item for their regimental show (horses/drill team/military structure -- sigh). And I've even been working on other projects as well including some socks, a last minute Baby Surprise jacket and a cage cozy for charity.

Then I have to think about a sweater I've promised my friend for about 8 years now. It's all knitted up and actually half-sewn together but it's been put aside for all these important, time-sensitive projects -- as if 8 years isn't time sensitive enough. Although this isn't my oldest UFO, I was wondering what newer/older projects people are finishing up.

I need to finish the sweater I started a couple of months ago as well as the afghan I began in Jan. Was hoping to get the afghan finished by May 1, but having problems with the hand/finger aches with the large needles and double strand yarn. The sweater is knit but not sewn together. Guess I'm just not in the mood to sew or knit big things. Did finish a chemo hat today. Hope that counts!!! Happy Knitting!!!! Marian

I have a beautiful sweater completely finished and sewn up to the underarms. All it needs is to be transferred to circs and finished. (Crew? Turtleneck? Short rows in the back of the yoke? If so how many? What else can I do to stall off the finishing?)

October will mark the twentieth anniversary of the day I put it away. Maybe I'll finish it; maybe I won't. It was designed for someone who won't wear it, but there is someone who would probably like it. We'll see. It doesn't bother me; in fact, I rather like its presence.
