WIP Weds: Tired of looking at WIP’s

I am getting fed-up with my WIP list. I have decided that several of my projects need finishing, they have been on the list too long.

So once a month I am going to finish and feature a UFO from my WIP list. This was on my New Years Resolution List 2013! 

Kelp Forest Shawl Begun June 10,2012 98% done

Kelp Forest shawl, So close to finished! Will finish this in April!

Body knit first, sleeves worked together on same needle, as I had only one 3.5mm circ - note this is going to present a problem when setting the sleeves in the body for the yoke...

I have no idea what to do for his sisters First Communion, on the same day. Quick ideas would be appreciated. As a Protestant, not sure of the etiquette for this Catholic celebration. 

The March is over so here is The Scrap Jar so far for 2013
