The UFO Resurrection Challenge has officially begun!
2007 UFO Resurrection Challenge
The list of participants should be in the sidebar by the time you read this. If I've left you off the list, let me know. We also have a wonderful button, made by Kat of
A few things I wanted to mention:
1. There's still time to sign up! Deadline is January 31.
2. Please try to post each month about the item that you're working on or frogging.
3. You don't have to
finish the item within the month. You just have to honestly add it back into your rotation of active projects. For example, I might get out a barely-started lace shawl in February, work on it along with one or two other things for a few months, and not finish it until May. That's fine - as long as you're actively working on it, it's no longer a UFO.
Any other questions? Let me know.
What will everyone be working on first? I have an almost-done green cotton baby blanket, and at least five friends expecting babies in the spring, so I think I know what I'll be working on...

Cool button! So, I can copy it to my computer and put it on my blog? Do I link it to you?
Sign me up! I am definately in.
I plan on pulling out Starsky and finally getting it done! Thanks for providing such a great motivator!
i'm going to pull out something that will help with one of my knit-goals too - the cotton tots that was going to be a dishcloth blanket but I decided to turn into a kimono. You know my kimono knit goal ;) Speaking of, let me do that while i'm on here nak too.
I pulled a pair of purple socks from the stash. The pattern is from Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch, and I put them aside because the yarn is nastily splitty. I have to look at them constantly, which isn't the point of socks for me... lol. So that's what I'll be posting on. Pretty socks, though. Glad I'm working on them, actually.
My first project will be a purse that I crocheted but never lined and put together.
OhOhOh!! I have LOTS of UFOs to throw into the WIP pile. I am sending an email now. Please sign me up!!
Now this is something I definitely need to sign up for. :)
Sign me up!
Please sign me up. One of my resolutions is finish the UFOs or throw them out, so this is just what I need
sounds perfect forme, ;-)
I pulled out a shawl that just needs the rick rack lace added. It's from Weekend Knitting, no way is that shawl a weekend knit.
OMG this is so me! Please sign me up. Thank you!
I'm in! First up...My mother's Christmas socks and my father's Christmas scarf...better late than never!
Sign me up! I love this idea. Hopefully it will help me to commit to actually working on some of the UFOs floating around my stash.
I threw the nearly finished SnB catbed side in with my xmas knitting for my New Year's travel (5 hr drive). The xmas gifts didn't get finished, but I got a good amount of work done on the cat bed on the drive home yesterday. (I had forgotten about the challenge til I was knitting on it.) a few more rows and some finishing, and my kitty will finally have a completed bed.
Great idea, I'm in. I have a (heh, like thats the only UFO I have) a lacy baby shrug.
You go Krista! Your right better late than never.
This is great, please sign me up. I've been trying to modivate myself to finish some things for a while and I think this may be just what I need. Thanks for running it. :)
I've resurrected the yummy Bearfoot "Crossover Rib" (Sensational Knitted Socks, Charlene Schurch)socks that I started last spring and had the brightest intentions of wearing to Reinbeck. That was a pipe dream.
I am working on a couple sweaters for the kids that have been long forgotten, by me that is, definitely not by them.
Hi, Count me in. I have *at least* 12 UFOs. I think the January entrant will be a sock that's 7/8ths done (second sock not started).
Hi, can I join? Right now I have: 1 baby blanket for a niece being born on Wednesday; 1 cowl-neck tank top; 1 lace shawl; 3 pairs of socks; 1 pair of mittens; gauge swatches for a project that keeps changing; and loads of yarn. As UFOs go, one of the socks probably qualifies the most because I've been ignoring the second sock, but I should probably work on the blanket first since it actually has a deadline.
I want to join! I actually just resurrected my very oldest UFO on Saturday - you can read about it on my blog. It's a monstrosity of a blanket that's actually very close to *an* endpoint, if not the endpoint I originally imagined. And of course there's the sweater... several scarves I got bored with... a few half-done socks... the belated hat and scarf I promised my mother for Christmas... Oy. I *need* this UFO-along!
Sounds like fun, count me in. I have 3 or 4 hats that are half or three-quarters done from the first pre-op crazy spree, a couple of scarfs and afghans that I need to finish. :D
Boy do I need this! Please sign me up!
Maybe I should join. Have this shawl project, Adamas, on needles for MONTHS...
Hey, I'm in too! I've got three sweaters started (one about 2/3 done, one just a sleeve, and the other on a few inches), some fingerless gloves and a pair of socks.
I just finished my January UFO, an Adamas shawl I had been from October until early December. It's so nice to have one fewer UFO lying around! Thanks for the inspiration, I can't wait to see what everyone else is doing.
Yay--I frogged a sweater I've been hanging onto for ages for January (and blogged it). I have an adamas shawl to frog too--I plan to try something easier first. Also two lace cardigans to finish and one chenille one that I just have to sew together! Then I have a pair of socks for my Dad's birthday--I'm halfway through one, and his birthday was in September. That will take me thruogh June and I'm positive I will have more to finish by then.
A Sheep Shawl. A ridiculously close to finished Sheep Shawl.
Sign me up! I'm unofficially tagging along anyway.
Sign me up! I've got a stripy sock without a mate, 1/4 of 2 rugs, a couple of half finished bags, and a wrap that won't end. I need the incentive. Does blocking finished projects count toward UFOs? Then add 4 other things. I think I'm set till Halloween!
Hi, Boy do I ever need this incentive! I hope I can join all of you. I have so many ufo's, I've lost track. I think the one I would start first would be my grandson's Wonderful Wallaby. Please let me know if I can join you. Thanks, Donna
I think this is a great idea! I'm sure that I can find 12 UFO's :)
Don't see my name on the list yet, but have signed up on Ringsurf - please add me as I've accepted your challenge and am knitting away!
