Taking stock of my unfinished objects (aka UFOs)

I woke up this morning wondering where October had gone.

I had so many things I wanted to get done.

Some of them I did:

hilbert curve crochet blanket, crochetbug, crochet squares, crochet blocks, crochet circles, crochet afghan, hilbert curve
My 2010 North Carolina State Fair project

crochet circle, crochet but, camouflage, crochet circles, crochet sweater
Camouflage crochet circle jacket

some of them I didn’t:

crochetbug, UFOs, unfinished projects, crochet en plein air, outdoor crochet, crochet squares, crochet circles, crochet hexagons
My outdoor office and an assortment of unfinished crochet projects

It was hard to choose just four, but I got tired of bringing things downstairs, so these are the unfinished objects I am taking inventory of today.

One of the things I would like to get done so it is no longer weighing on my mind are the hexagons that are owed to fellow swappers in an African Flower Hexagon motif swap I belong to and for which I am three months in arrears:

crochetbug, crochet hexagons, crochet flowers, african flower hexagon crochet motif, crochet swap
African Flower Hexagon crochet motifs for a swap

Owing fellow swappers feels an awful lot like having an overdue library book. You want to return any overdue books, but at the same time, you don’t want to return to the scene of your crime.

Another item that needs my attention is this rug-to-be for my oldest son’s most recent birthday:

crochetbug, crochet circles, crochet rug, acrylic yarn, crocheted, crocheting
Ten of ten crochet circles needed for a throw-rug-to-be

I will set aside one morning to finish it, and most likely learn that it requires two entire days for some reason I cannot yet foresee.

One of the items I carried down was one that I had largely forgotten about. Based on the exceedingly popular Babette pattern from Interweave, I need to find the notebook that has my original thoughts about what I had wanted to accomplish this this project:

crochetbug, crochet squares, crochet color permutations, crochet blocks, granny squares, crochet cat runner
Crochet permutations

While I was sorting through potential UFOs, I came across the 28 squares I have completed toward my Go-go granny dress:

crochetbug, crochet squares, granny squares, crochet granny squares, crochet granny square dress
Granny squares for my go-go granny crochet dress

I don’t have a clear sense of which project I will complete first (there are so many to choose from), or in what order I will complete them, but it is my intention to devote the month of November to finishing as many unfinished objects as possible, as training for the month of December when I intend to finish my largest (by size and weight) UFO of all.
