I Need To Spring Clean My Knitting Basket

I really want to start a new knitting project, but with a deadline project currently on the needles and more coming down the pike for spring, I really can't justify doing so unless I finish one of the many projects which have been languishing in my project basket. While I'm totally ok with the crochet handspun blanket being a WIP for a prolonged period of time, it's pretty ridiculous that the bulky weight sweater I started last August isn't even at the halfway mark.

This stripey cowl in Seraphim yarn has been on the needles since the beginning of September, and I've moved it to my office so that I can sneak in a few rows here and there during conference calls. The last time I did that with a project, it became an FO pretty quickly - of course, that project was worsted weight, not lace weight yarn!

Technically, the Find Your Fade KAL ends on March 31, but it seems to be pretty laid back in terms of the rules. I'm totally fine if I'm not eligible for prizes, so I'll try to finish my Fade by the end of the month, but I'm not going to make an extraordinary effort.

And these stockinette socks are still very much on the needles, hanging out in my purse for whenever I leave the house and need something to knit on that doesn't take a lot of brain power!

Wouldn't it be amazing if I finished one of these projects over the weekend? I won't be holding my breath....
