New Years Resolution WIP Collection Demolition!

So here I am, back for more unfinished object self shaming.  I really did not think that it was this bad when I got started, but I knew after I took all the pictures, made the list and reorganized everything that it really was that bad.  But it is all going to be OK.  I've set plans in motion and begun working on a bunch of these projects and one by one, they're getting completed or frogged.  It's actually a very cathartic process (which I'll share after I've gotten through sharing what all the projects are in the first place)  So without further adieu, let's jump right in to....

WIP #25

This was actually the very first prototype for the blanket that I made my oldest daughter.  She was jealous after I made the blanket for my younger daughter, so I told her I would make her a blanket too.  I got started and was working along on this great new pattern, when she started crying because she wanted it to be just like her sisters!  Not to be discouraged, because I knew that I was on to a great pattern here, I took her up to my yarn selection and let her pick out her own selection of colors and told her that it would be unique like her.  She was happy and I was happy she was going to let me do this great pattern for her.  So I tossed this one aside and started over in her colors. 
I still love the color combination in this blanket and would like to finish it.  I'm holding on to it for now, and will decide whether to frog or finish later. 


WIP #26

I made this wonderfully lush display blanket for my mother a couple of years ago, and she loves it - it matches her living room perfectly (yep, I did that on purpose).  When I was done with the blanket, I discovered that I had worked an extra motif.  Not one to throw anything out, it made it's way into my WIP bin.  It is currently sitting in my undecided box because I could join some of the random motifs I have and make something interesting, or I could also just frog it and throw the yarn in my scrap bin.


WIP #27

I think these were motifs for a shirt or something?  I really don't remember.  They're sitting in my undecided box.


WIP #28

Another unknown motif.  Wow.  Where do these come from?  They're like socks in reverse!


WIP #29

This square was a test.  It was just a test.  Yet, I cannot throw it out, or bear to frog it.  Maybe I can find something to use it for?  



Well that was kind of a weird UFO collection for today.  Mainly all these weird squares that I've collected over the years.  Should I do something with them or should I frog them?  What do you think?  Leave me a comment below!!
