Inherited UFO

nona thought she was doing fairly well dealing with her UFOs -- until she inherited a UFO from a nona-knitter.  Ah, yes -- UFOs can be inherited.  Some are inherited as joyous little bundles and others are inherited as penance for past mistakes.  This particular UFO is a little of both, leaning more toward the penance end of the spectrum.  Shall I tell you the story?  I think I shall...

nona loves to teach others to knit.  One of my long term nona-knitters has been working on a tank top for her daughter.  She's almost done, having just the front neck shaping and edging to finish.  At the same time, she was knitting a hat for an upcoming ski trip -- a hat in which nona totally misread the patten and misled the poor gal terribly.  Luckily we all had a good laugh over the resulting "hat".  After offering nona-knitter new yarn and/or a beer in exchange for my misdirection, she suggested my finishing the tank top.  That is why, my friends, I've inherited a UFO and am happily finishing the thing!

nona's inherited UFO - please note the lovely basket the UFO came in.
nona trains her nona-knitters well when it comes to respecting their knitting.

I'm a nona fan, way across the world in the far east! I just love reading your knit-stories and seeing your knits. I will remember to respect my knitting more - guilty of plastic bag offence, as charged! Thanks for sharing your wonderful writing, tips and ideas - I liked the mohair vest idea where you used 3 strands of different colours to knit. amazing result! And the knit you came up with after sweater-stalking is so interesting. I am looking forward to your intriguing knits on the new Knitty - lovely colours!
