what is the Irishman’s code word for foreplay?

"Brace yourself!"

Brace yourselves darlings —- I have some FO’s!  In a radical departure, I have actually finished two projects.


they are being blocked as you read this. 

Does this count?  At what point is a project finished?  Are you a purist and believe it’s done when it’s done?  Or are you like me and the minute that thing isn’t in your knitting bag anymore, it’s finished?

  1. Weelll, I’m counting the shawl on my needles that is justaboutfinished a practical FO. If I can see the end in my mind – it’s done baby. Put a fork in it! LOL.

    Wishful thinking, of course.

  2. For me, an object is finished when I’ve sewn in the ends and it’s off the needles.

    I don’t consider anyone else’s objects finished until I see a picture on a blog however. Neener, neener.

  3. It’s not done until I’m happy wearing it out of the house. I sit here ‘wearing’ York (from Noro Knits); knit, blocked, seamed, ends sewn in – but a few ends need trimming, and it’s missing a zip. Not done until nothing further needs doing. ;)
