At the end of either the winter or the summer I take works in progress and put them in long-term parking. When the season rolls around again I take them out with full intentions of finishing them.
This summer I finished the "Alexa" vest by Debbie Bliss sweater that I knit in Stella; it had been in long-term parking for 2 years. I did not finish the white short sleeved sweater that will now be going on it's 3rd year. I still really like the pattern, I just get distracted by new yarn/patterns.
At the end of last winter I put away this Lace Cardigan pattern from S. Charles Collezione, Fall/Winter 2008. I'm knitting it in Ritratto and Kamelsoft.
It will make a great holiday sweater - although what holiday I'm not sure. Sort of depends on when I finish it. The holiday may be "Yay, I finished it".
As I'm writing this I realize that I have the Squiggle Scarf pattern from Crochet Inspiration to pick up again. The squiggles are crocheted in Kid Silk Haze. It's been in parking so long, I can't remember what the green yarn is.
