Open Issues List

Back when I was a lawyer I used to have to make “open issues” lists – multipage documents listing and classifying every contentious issue that had to be settled before a transaction could close. The parties would then argue about whether certain issues should or shouldn’t be included on the list, thereby adding even more open issues and prolonging the agony. I love thinking back to those great lawyer projects, just remembering that drudgery motivates me when I’m feeling a little too tired to work the night shift at the restaurant.

Here’s a little list of the open knitting issues in my life right now.

Looks like it’s time for a new pair of felted clogs…



The fair isle sleeve of the yolk pullover is going well so far…



What’s this?



Part of a super secret surprise in progress to be revealed soon – so cute you may need to wear sunglasses when viewing the FO.

You’ll notice that none of these projects look like holiday presents. That’s because it’s only December 11th. Plenty of time, right?

Oh that sleeve is looking fantastic. I think those colors are going to work perfectly, don't you?

PS I like "open issues list" much better than "ufo pile". It sounds way less lazy.

I can't wait until I have another job, and can look back on this one to remind myself how bad things used to be...

Oh my gosh, what a great sleeve! I love it, and am jealous of all your non-gift knitting. :)
