Trying to be good...

...and keep motivated.

Whilst looking through my knitting yarn stash earlier this evening I came across a bag of unfinished items. They were all the bits for a lot of baby cardigans that I was knitting last year before I made a start on the scarves I gave as Christmas presents.

I decided if I didn't fancy knitting this evening perhaps I could at least stitch some of these together and get them done - so that's what I've done.

Here are some that I've finished (I should have some more pics to post tomorrow evening).
This set only needed a couple of buttons stitched on to finish it off...don't know why I didn't do it at the time **rollseyes** I must have been distracted by something else (probably some new item that I wanted to play with there and then LOL). Most folk who know me know that I can easily be distracted by a fancy new yarn, some new craft tool or pretty PPs - very fickle LOL
These two just needed the sleeve & side seams done and the buttons stitched on - sorted.

So now I'm feeling a little bit smug that I have actually got some of my U.F.O.s dealt with...**gives halo a quick polish**...and quite timely too as I have a colleague at work who is expecting a baby at the beginning of March. No-one knows what the sex is so my selection should ensure that I have at least a couple that will be suitable.

Do I do a couple of rows of the tea-cosy or do I toddle off to bed?...think bed will win....................................

and the girl can knit as well... and such lovely things too! I have to laugh though Toni as I am the same with mini books... if I would just plant my bum and make myself finish a few off I would have a pile of new ones!!
