This is not a new project. It may look like a new project; it may smell like a new project; it may even feel like a new project--but it is not.
This is a UFO. It is true that I just cast it on, but that does not make it a new project. I planned to make it last year. I even made the first half of it last year. Do you remember this?
This is the tank from the Retro Ribby Twinset in Knitting Lingerie Style. I made it last spring. I intended to make the shrug shortly thereafter, but I got sidetracked by Prosperous, and then Grecian Plaits, and Icarus, and by the time I thought of it again, it was fall, and I wasn't interested in a tank and shrug.
The status of this project is crucial. I still have not finished Death By Cables. Which means I still have not fulfilled my oath to the Knitting Goddess, and we all know what a b*tch she can be when you mess with her. I am not brave enough to fly in the face of her potential wrath by casting on anything new. We have already established that gift knitting does not qualify as "new." Neither do socks, because, well...just because. And of course, a UFO cannot be classified as "new." Right? So I figure I'm safe with this one. It's not a shrug; it's a twinset. Big difference. It is part of an unfinished project, not a whole new one. It's all in the details, people.
You've got my back on this, right?
