A way to achieve finishing those UFOs

I ran across this link from Pixie Purls podcast. I think it is a great way to help me work on those UFOs (Unfinished Objects). To be fair I only have a baby blanket, a pair of socks, and a hat to finish up....I think.

UFO Resurrection Challenge 2007
Because I clearly do not have enough to do...

A while back, I mentioned that I was going to try to pull out and work on or frog a UFO per month in 2007. People seemed interested, so I thought I'd officially open sign-ups.

The Rules
1. Each month in 2007, find a UFO (unfinished object). This makes a total of twelve (12) for the year. You do not need to have a list of all twelve at the beginning of the year - you can go month by month if you'd like. (I plan to.)
2. You have two options for that UFO:
a. Work on it. You don't have to finish it that month, if it's something big, but it must be added into your rotation of "active" projects. A token row or two does not count. ;-)
b. Frog it. If you don't want to work on it anymore, rip it out and move on.
3. Post on your blog each month (or comment if you don't have a blog) about the project you're resurrecting.
4. Everyone who finishes will be entered into a prize drawing. And even if you don't win anything, you'll have twelve fewer languishing projects making you feel guilty!

If one doesn't have any UFOs, can one start something in the last day of a month, and call it a UFO the next morning?

These exclusive competitions... I suppose I do have 2 UFOs. Maybe I should frog the one that is a swatch, and do something about the other.

I don't have a clue...I didn't make up these rules! LOL

I try to stay pretty monogomous to my one project until it is finished, but I've let a couple slip through the cracks.

I figure I might win something! :)

Spit splicing is a wonderful thing. You can't believe it would work or that it would hold but it joins your yarns together invisibly.

How are your Fancy Silk Socks coming along?

I just heard about the UFO challenge yesterday - I'm thinking it would be a great excuse for me to get some of these lingering projects wrapped up and out the door!
