See those 3 items on the right sidebar under UFO's? I hate them. Why are they there then? Because I don't want to feel like I've wasted yarn money, so maybe if I have a list of UFO's to look at, I may get off my butt & deal with the problem. I've decided to tackle them one at a time by either finishing them or completely frogging them & doing something else with the yarn until there's hopefully nothing ever in the UFO list.

I've decided to first attack the Felted Slippers (Curiously Clever Clogs). These clogs aren't Curious or Clever but actually Confusing & Contemptible. That's right! These are the Confusing Contemptible Clogs!!

Since I belong to the Curiously Clever Clogs KAL, and most of those members seem to also have issues with the pattern, I've decided that the only source of help will probably be at the Stitch Diva Studios booth at Stitches West . Hopefully someone in their booth has knit these & can help me. I've had this in the UFO list for awhile & I'm just not going to let a $7 felted slipper pattern go to waste. I also noticed that there's a Knit Doctor at Stitches West as well, so if I can't get help at the Stitch Diva booth, may the Dr can help me!

On a side note, you may want to check out my favorite jewelry designer at her etsy shop named Twisted Lily Designs. She just uploaded some new jewelry today & it's beautiful! Of course a lot of the best pieces have already sold, but there's still some amazing pieces remaining. In fact, if I had more money, lily would be mine! She's also got a great blog that includes knitting that I absolutely adore!!

One last thing, If you commented on my blog & you didn't hear a personal response back from me, it's because I don't have your email address. Blogger is a hit/miss kind of thing with that so if you can leave me your email address next time, that would be great! THANKS to all of you for the comments on my socks. I guess I should re-title my last blog post to "Beautifully Black".

I absolutely HATE Blogger for that! New blogger doesn't give you ANY e-mail addresses. Over the last few weeks, I have been going to blogs and trying to find e-mail addresses, but not everyone has it on their blog. Makes it hard to respond to comments!

Blogger certainly is terrible at handling comments, especially the "new & improved" Blogger.

I'm so jealous you get to go to Stitches West! Will you be able to trust yourself with a credit card?

Yeah, I've noticed we don't get e-mail addresses on comments anymore. I put that in a Blogger survey I filled out - hopefully they'll fix it soon? I love your determination in finishing all of your WIPs. I'm trying to work my way through my pile too.

The new Blogger sucks big time! I'm not using it myself, but I come across it all the time when I'm doing my blog-rounds, and it sucks, sucks, sucks!
I'm absolutely impressed on how determined you are with finishing your UFO's - and I know you *can* do it! All the best!

Those clogs look confusing as hell.

The clogs would be very helpful in the northeast for this coming weekend - it's supposed to get really, really cold for the first time. Can't wait to see how they come out!
