Some Unfinished Business

Why is it that some projects, 95 - 99% complete just languish? Finishing them is just too much effort. There is nothing wrong witht he knitted item, and there is nothing herculean to complete or do, 
yet they sit there and are sometimes forgotten.
Everynow and then I decide to attack those items.

My Fairly Easy Fair Isle has been sitting for nearly 2 years.
This sweater only needed some sleeve seaming and a new button band. 
Now it just needs buttons, but I don't want to talk about that.

These little mittens? Don't know anything about them. I suspect that someone snuck in and stuck them in my stash at some point - leaving the poor unfinished dears to languish.

They needed some love.
 Our knitting guild, the Windy City Knitting Guild, is having a charity program and that is where these will go.

I feel like I have accomplished something, and no I don't want to discuss any other UFOs.

Hat Done.

... but I was too late.

I hope to never have to knit my friends or loved ones chemo caps again, but if I do I will always ask them to let me know if they ever need more or if they want something specific - and not hesitate to ask.

Thanks for teaching me something else T., you were an amazing woman and I will miss you.
