Quarterly Progress
















At the turn of the year I had this notion to keep a better handle on my Works in Progress and to prevent startitis getting out of hand.

It's the 20-40-60-80 Challenge, and I had thought to do it monthly, ha ha, but quarterly seems to be the option on the table at the moment!

The idea is I assess how far along a project is, then use the wee table as motivation to keep my projects afloat. A bit of motivation to stop me feeling bogged down, without taking away all the fun.

And knitting is spose to be fun. Who said that, Mason-Dixon?

So, log for 2009 (although the cast-on dates of some of these projects goes way back when) -

0%
Doomed Girasole. Attempt at Girasole in OMA laceweight- frogged. Good yarn, good pattern, Kathleen is the dodgy element.
(Next time, newly cast-ons can go here too.)

20%
Lacy Waves Top
Boatman Jumper
Brier Cardigan

40%
Baby Jumper
Chocolate Strawberry Fondant Socks
Green and Lilac bamboo top

60%
Mohair Shawl with Eyelet Spines (was Icarus)
Fat Girasole
Shaped Shoulder Shawl

80%
Crochet Cushion Cover 3 rounds, plus assembly to go
Eva Jumper Surface embroidery, plus assembly to go
Shetland Hap Shawl Blue section, Oatmeal Section, Edging to go; edging may be the killer

100%
Fan Neckwarmer
Camo Loom Hat


In theory, when I update this at the end of June, loads of the items will have moved up a category or two. There you are, I've said all my WIPs aloud, now all I have to do is play with them. :-)

What a good idea! I'm so glad I'm not the only one with tonnes of WIPs and a case of startitis!

Sounds like an interesting and motivating idea, but knowing myself - I would probably failed since I like to stick to one or most two projects and finish it no matter what! Though sometimes I wish I have more WIPs and when I'm bored I could pick up the funniest!

I'm supposedly doing a pair of socks a month - February's are almost finished and March's cast-on - it may end up being 11 pairs instead of 12! lol
Your table looks good , and I like the idea of 20-40-60-80. Most of mine are 20!
