Guys, I have a problem. I am not a monogamous knitter. Now, I know a lot of you are not monogamous with your knitting, but I think this year I have taken it to another level. I keep starting projects, but never finish them. I have a basket full of WIP’s that may never get done!
I realized that it specifically encompasses pairs, but not exactly how you would think. I know of the dreaded “single sock syndrome.” You finish a sock, and then never get the second completed.
My problem is getting the first of a pair *almost* done, but not quite.
Take this pretty sock I started knitting for Emma. I did the pretty pattern, I turned the heel, and now I just need to finish up a bit of length and shape the toe. It wouldn’t take long to finish the one sock, but I put it aside and start something different.
Then there is this wristlet that I started for my mom, all I need to do is make the button hole for the thumb, and knit a few more rounds and it will be completed.
These pieces are almost finished, but not quite, and I can’t seem to figure out why I keep starting, stopping, and starting something new!
Don’t get me started on the scarf that I started at the beginning of the year, completed one skein of yarn, and then set aside.
Why am I telling you all of this? Well, because my goal is one finished knit object a month, not one started. I have a lot of WIP’s, I need to complete them. So for April, I plan to finish the wristlets for my mom, and hopefully finish the one sock for Emma, then maybe the second sock will come in time for her birthday in May!
My reading has slowed down a bit. I received these books in the mail yesterday – The Goodbye Bride and Siren’s Song. Siren’s Song especially looked good to me (I always judge a book by its cover), however, it is the third in a series, so now I need to find the other two before I can read this one! I hate when that happens.
We are reading about the Revolutionary War in our homeschool right now. I love this time period, and watching my children learn about the founding of our country, and how they feel about the different events is really interesting to see.
Do you continue to start new projects before finishing the last, or are you good about completing a project before starting a new one?
