UFO as in “unfinished object.” I noticed this week how very many of these are lying around my studio waiting to be finished.
I started framing the three damask pictures I wove for family late last winter. In my defense, I’ve been undecided until recently just how to frame them, and now I just have to … finish.
There’s the basket of cottolin towels woven in…hmmm…maybe May? They are ready to be hemmed, just waiting.
There’s also the “new” towel warp put on while I waited to hear about a yarn order. Two towels woven, seven to go.
Then there’s the doubleweave placemats that necessitated the said yarn order. These are on the loom and are my current focus since it’s a set order.
And there’s the agreement to weave an opphämta wall hanging with winter motifs, in the vein of the hangings I wove last summer. This one is not even on the loom yet, but it’s committed.
Not to mention the millennial braided rug, visited only sporadically because it is such a learning experience. Or the two knitting projects that sit next to my couch for evening relaxation.
UFOs are not bad things really. Each project moves at its own pace and if I have to wait for something on one project, it’s good to have another to work on. But there is a tipping point. It’s time to wrap up at least some of these UFOs — so I can start some more!
Do you have any UFOs waiting for your attention?
