Jacquie over at Tallgrass Prairie Studio has thrown down the gauntlet once again: clear out those WIPs for 2010! Well, I think she said it much more nicely and inspirationally, but that's the general idea. This time around, I thought I'd try, for once, to be moderately realistic about what I can and cannot accomplish, so here's my list of seven WIPs I'd like to try to finish in these next two months:

Realistically doable:
-Finish Ishbel #2 [I know, where's Ishbel #1? Waiting to be blocked, erg ...]
-Blue blouse refashion
-Ingenue sweater*

Stretch goals:
-Blue quilt [yes, the one I dragged here from CA after it lay dormant for 9 years, and still have yet to touch]
-Lisa's gift

Wow, do I really believe there are more than 24 hours in a day/I can make it on 6 hours of sleep or less:
-Black skirt refashion

So there we go. Let's see what happens when optimism hits reality, but for now I'm making slow progress on these.

Further proof I've gone a little batty. Remember how I don't like triangles? Well, I still don't like them [detest may be a better word], yet somehow two of the seven projects above require triangles. I love myself, I really do.

*Thanks for all the suggestions on the sweater vs. bolero debate! I agree that the sweater is a bit more casual and that it would also look good as a bolero. So while I'm girding up my courage to either tackle the actual bolero, or go scrounge up more yarn for a modified-duster-bolero, I'm knitting the Ingenue sweater from Custom Knits. November is NaKniSweMo, after all!
