I've been working on a knitted blanket for five years. I'm working in weaving in the nearly 400 ends, and I get frustrated with it really easily.

The last two years, I've made a new years resolution to finish unfinished projects. Last year I was able to finish 20 projects I already had bought materials for, and 9 new ones. I'm really looking forward to seeing what I can do this year! Smiley

Something around four years. Started a teddy bear modification, then it just sat on a shelf for years until I got back to it.

I have a quilt I started 20 years ago.  I made a little progress last year on it, this will hopefully be the year it gets done!

I have half a tablecloth, that I started after buying $100 of cotton using a gift card that my husband bought me.  Can't remember exactly when I started but had pulled it out when I was pregnant with my son, I had lost the crochet hook before then and had just found it.  I remember sitting in the waiting room at the hospital working on it, a nurse complimented me on it, saying that she didn't think people did that sort of thing these days.

Anyway my son is now 19 years old.  I did get a little use out of the cloth by putting on a table in the corner.   I am guessing that the cloth is about reach it's 21st birthday

Recently pulled it out, but my tension has changed in the years since.
