Brought to you by the number 15

Knitting as a general rule has caught up with me. It's one of those obsessions that is so captured in the moment, so emotionally tied. I see a photo of a pattern in IK, or WIPs on craftster, or a host of gorgeous FOs and all the possible yarn choices on ravelry, then cast on. Then, I hide said project in a bag in a basket as soon as something better comes along.

I took a Knitting Daily poll last week, on UFOs. I estimated that I had 15, without really counting them up. I finally found a few minutes, charged my digicam and decided my new dining room table was a good enough canvas to catch up on photographing said UFOs. Is there an official timeframe, or formula that is needed to convert a WIP to a UFO?

After laying them all out, and counting them up, I came to the realization that it really was 15. That counts the current WIPs...but wow, some of these were from 2005!

In case you are curious to see them, in all of their unfinished glory, you can check out my recently updated ravelry notebook, or my 2007 WIP photoset on flickr.
