Trying to clear the decks!

I have two projects started before Yule I want to finish..before moving on to a totally new one.
The first is a pair of baby ugg style boots featured in "let's Knit" magazine. I sewed them together wrong, so have had to unpick, and after doing that tonight...will....fingers crossed sew them together correctly, and be able to give them to the intended recipient.
Second is a cardigan in Stylecraft Brushstrokes. What I didn't see whilst knitting this is that it has a high...(read bust line) waist...and is for people of standard proportions. I am long in the this design is just WRONG for me...I wish I'd spotted that before taking time to knit it up.
The question I finish it and give it to my neighbour who rescued me a fridge emergency.....or pull it all back?
On the fridge stopped working, my neighbour "rescued" me by loaning a spare fridge she has..smaller.but it does the trick. I seriously think I should finish the cardigan for we are around the same "bust" size...but she is nowhere near as long in the body as me.
(p.s she has also said I can keep her spare fridge until late no pressure on buying a new one....I think that too deserves the cardigan.)

Do I have another week or two?

In early January last year I blogged that I had three "goals" for the coming year.
I have done some reversible knitting....TICK!!!!
I have made a pair of socks...albeit...little ankle socks...but they did incorporate "turning the heel"...which went TICK!!!
I haven't yet tried entrelac I have time to do this before the twelve months have passed? Can't remember..but I do have a baby pattern using enterlac...and a relative is expecting a baby early March..
Maybe by this time next month I will have tackled my first ever entrelac project.

AND!!!!!Ihave projects I have knitted but not shown here to share with you all.
