So a few years ago I started a Mystery Shawl KAL. Both ends of the shawl were a mirror image of each other. It had beads. Lots of beads. I can't remember how many clues I knit on until I found out the finished product was going to have a womb in it. I was done. DONE DONE Done.......

I was knitting both ends at the same time. So I was left with two pieces of crap with beads. I had good intentions of frogging them and reusing the yarn. I just never could get my head around frogging with beads. UGH So it sat in hiding.

I had a conversation with my husband while taking my inventory of projects. See I have challenged myself to finish or frog everything on my needles at the stroke of midnight this Friday night (12/31/10) during 2011.

Jimmy said hey why don't you just throw it out. WHA????? I looked at him like he had horns growing out of his head for a few minutes. Can I really do that I think I asked. He said YEP. I said grab the camera. And here you have it.... It is ok to sometimes throw it out!

Oh, trust me. I've gotten to that point where I've just thrown it out, too.

I've only thrown out one project, but seriously, sometimes it just has to go.

A womb?? seriously??? what kind of mystery involves a womb????
