Finish or Frog Friday

Jennifer over at Major Knitter has started a new KAL for 2009 called Finish It or Frog It.


On Fridays you take a good look at what's on your needles (and in the bottom of the WIP basket) and make the choice to finish it or frog it Then you post about it on your blog or in the Ravelry group. You don't have to do it every Friday, but I think it's a great idea to get into the habit of evaluating my projects every week so they don't spin out of control.

So, to start the year off right, I decided today would be a Finish It Friday.


I buckled down and finished the Felted Clogs I was making Pea for Christmas.


And then, I even felted them and put them through the dryer!

Cast On: 21 November 2008
Completed: 2 January 2009
Yarn: Cascade 220 Heathers
Needles: Knit Picks Options US13 (9mm)

Perfect fit. We even threw away the last pair of slippers I had knit him, since the soles had holes so big his foot fit right through. And next Friday, hopefully I have another knit finished to show you! This KAL is just the inspiration I needed. If you need a bit of inspiration too, let Major Knitter know you'd like to join us!

What a great idea. I'll have to go over and take a look. The clogs came out great! Love the Scrabble tiles. I just bought the super version here for my daughter so we can play after school. We need to pick up a Scrabble dictionary though.

Happy New Year!

what a great idea! I have so many things on the needles now I have lost count! I love the clogs BTW, they are mega cute!

That's a really good idea. I have a ton of stuff that I need to either finish or abandon. Kudos on finishing those clogs!

Jennifer said...

I joined up too! This KAL will be a great way to keep track of the WIPs, I think.

Great clogs! I have one pair completed but not felted and another pair as a WIP. This is making me want to get off my butt and finish them. Did you do anything special when you put your clogs in the dryer? I don't machine dry my felted stuff, as I'm always afraid of permanent creases.

Cool idea. And I love the clogs

What a great idea for a knit along! I have quite a few things that need to be either frogged or finished up already... hmmm...

Great clogs!

Yes, that is a great idea! Those clogs were finished at just the right time, too!

Jessica said...

I really need to make a pair of these sometime. They look great!
