Introducing FO Week!!!

There are still a lot of projects in my knitting basket that I've been wanting to finish up. They've dragged on too long. So I started thinking about proclaiming this week to be FO week. Get them all done, and post them in each blog entry.

Want to play too? Sure you do!! Think of all your New Years Intentions about finishing up your WIPs. Got a sweater that's been waiting to be seamed? A scarf that needs blocking? A sock that's thisclose to being done? A hat that's been lingering on the needles? Now is the perfect time to . . .

Show Me Your FO!!!

Simply leave me a comment if you think it sounds like fun!! Then send me an e-mail each time you post a FO, and I'll link it to my post that day! FO Week will begin tomorrow, January 30th and end on Sunday, February 5th. Any project you've finished this weekend can count as your first FO tomorrow!! Come on, let's clear out those WIP's!!!!

Awesome idea, Karen!! Please count me in! I don't have very many WIP's, but your post reminded me that I have a baby kimono that I need to block and weave the ends in to officially make it an FO. I'm always in awe and so impressed by people who can juggle several WIPs at one time. I'm such a loser, I get all messed up and start making huge mistakes if I try to do more than one thing at a time! I'm going to try to get better at that this year so I can have several projects going at once. And look at you and Chrissy go, hostessing KAL's!! ;-) Hope you're feeling better and take care! :-)

I hope you're feeling all the way better! I feel it would be nice to commit to your FO along, but alas, I doubt I'll finish anything other than a measly dishcloth. I like being busy right now, because I'm doing stuff I love, but it sure cuts back on the knitting time! Good luck and take care!

Haha...FO week. i hope you're feeling better!!! too bad about the dinner party :( sounded like it would've been lots of fun! but better to reschedule considering the people who'd be coming over.

and i guess when you're sick, you start getting these crazy ideas. i'm working on a contest and a swap, myself. but eh...something else wouldn't hurt. hehehe...count me in! i got a pair of socks that probably could be finished. and heck, i'll shoot for a couple of other things while i'm at it. :)
