Why Do Things Become UFO's?

Here's one example. Couldn't wait to start Spanish Moss from Romi's Shawl and Pin Club. If you remember, my kit got lost and I waited and waited for it to arrive. I took it along on my trip to France and got the center panel done but it had to be put aside because...

I had to make Juneberry Triangle for a shop sample so I could teach the class this summer. (I did finish this one-but I thought maybe the patterning would show up better on a heavier yarn, so after I finish the one I'm working one, that will be my next project-in a pretty red.)

When I finished Juneberry, I started Sakaki. It is really a simple pattern, but I've had to rip substantial amounts 3 times for a simple loose stitch in my YO's. I do enjoy this pattern and it is a good one to do when with people as it doesn't take a lot of concentration. (My mistakes were sloppy knitting, not pattern mistakes.) But...this has been set aside...

because my daughter in law wants me to make a shawl for a friend's wedding June 18. A deadline pushes this to the top of the queue. This is Brandywine Shawl by Romi.

So that explains 3 unfinished shawls, plus one in the "need to do right now" queue. Notice, they're all shawls! I have started Spud the sheep from the book, Spud and Chloe at the Farm by Susan B. Anderson, which is also for a class and I work on when I'm in the mood. It's real putzy! There just isn't enough time!
