I need to get out more…

(and to stop procrastinating at work, apparently).

Here we are almost at the end of July… and I will be turning 37 in the middle of next month. It seems a convenient time to take stock of my knitting and craft work during my 37th year… all were knitted for myself unless specified otherwise.

Current UFOs

– Spicy Fitted V-neck top in sari silk (sleeves and neckline remaining – will finish tonight)

Phew!!! Too bad I couldn’t be so productive at work! 😉 If I’m counting correctly that is something like 45 FOs… and 3 weeks to go!

Query: do socks/slippers/etc count as 1 FO, or 2? Hmm…
