Knitting Progress!

Today is all about progress. I've made some great progress on a lot of my UFO's. I'm sure there are other people out there that do what I do. I have at least 10 projects open and it's just not enough. I'm always on the lookout for more, MORE, MORE! Here's 2 questions for my visitors. How many UFO's do you have? Do you look daily for more patterns?

Okay, on to my progress. Remember my orange scarf? Here's a picture of it so far. I try to do 8 rows a day (full pattern rows):

The next scarf, I started a long time ago and I just recently picked up again. I try to do 8 rows of this a day (1/2 the pattern rows of 16). Some will recognize it from scarf style. I'm using a nice cotton - although it's a real thin yarn and will take me a while to finish it.

The next is another scarf that will take me forever to complete but it's a good meditation. And the changing of the yarn is fun. I'm planning on switching direction of the stripes as soon as the bottom right corner makes it to the top left.

This next is being made with Manos de Uruguay - I frogged a scarf that I'd made with a pillar stitch - I didn't really like the way it came out - so, I found this scarf that really shows off the colorway - and I'm very happy with it.

An another view of it. Rather artsy, isn't it?

Your scarves are all beautiful. I have several WIPs at the moment, not sure how many though. Yesterday I started a scarf because I was in the mood to do mindless knitting, and the items I have on the go...or at least most of them require just a little more than mindless concentration. Besides, I wanted to start something from my stash so I could have an excuse to get more yarn sometime to take its place...lol.

I am one of the rare few...I currently only have one WIP. But your scarves look great!

Thanks for commenting on my blog! It's nice to know people actually read it :) I feel your scarf pain. I am still working on a scarf that was originally destined for Christmas last year. Maybe this time around... As for WIPs, normally I try to keep it under control but right now with the holiday stuff going on, I think I am scared to count it!
