My Own Personal UFO

For those of you I’ve known for a long time, I am not referring to that crazy song people used to sing to get it stuck in your head: thankfully I’ve long since forgotten the tune and most of the words, other than “I’m being followed by my own personal UFO.”

In this case, I’m talking about an UnFinished Object. Specifically, this is a blanket for myself I’ve been working on pretty much as long as I’ve been able to knit. At this point, all the sections have been knitted and I’ve got a section sewn together wide enough to make it usable. Here’s a wide shot to show how long this thing is:

Here’s a close-up of the colors involved:

So what’s the holdup? As I’ve mentioned previously, I hate sewing knitting. This particular pattern, while I like it, is a pain to sew and it takes forever. Eventually, though, this UFO will join the ranks of the FO’s. Just, not today.

P.S. It’s all Red Heart worsted weight yarns.


  1. I looks beautiful, regardless of the Pain in The... factor. :)

  2. Thanks :-) I figured if I got the pieces made before RedHeart discontinued any of the colors, I'm not "too" far behind on the thing ;-)

  3. Not only is it beautiful, it's warm and soft and feels like home. :)

  4. Thanks :-) Of course, my hubby wouldn't be biased or anything...
