Finishing UFOs

I've decided to finish all of my projects, knitting and otherwise, that have been hibernating before starting new ones. And then I'm going to try to knit and crochet my stash before buying more yarn. I don't have too many UFOs, so this shouldn't be too difficult to do.

I think this is the first sweater I knit, and it went fairly quickly. But there was a lot of finishing up to do -- sewing seams, buttons, pockets -- so it ended up unfinished for about six years. In that time, it got attacked by moths, so I had to patch a hole on the back, which was quite annoying. But now it's done and I have a nice sweater jacket to wear in the fall.
