Well, I hope that soon I’ll finally be able to share a couple of my secret projects, long since finished, and another that I’m plugging away on again. How do you motivate yourself to finish things up? I’m talking to those of you without project monogamy, who have more than a couple (hem, hem) works in progress…
Firstly, I can admit I have knitter’s ADD. If it isn’t quick, small or a fun challenge, I get bored, no matter how much I’d like to finish the project. See this? I love the yarn, hated the pattern. Can’t even finish the third repeat. Decided in the fall I’d grind through it as travel knitting and gift it for Christmas. Nope. That only got me through the second repeat. Thought briefly about gifting it earlier this year, and that caused me to start the third repeat, but I’ve come to the conclusion that yummy yarn wants to be something I can knit with love.
Secondly, I have things on the needles for DEAR friends and my favorite aunt (sniff, sniff… only one of those now). I like the projects, I want to gift them in a timely fashion (okay, the wool forthebeach hooded scarf for Aunt will at best be an anniversary gift in the fall), but I can’t seem to pick any one of them up on a regular basis and make real progress.
I really want to cast on for Fauxibus (although I’ll be doing the moebius version) with its Malabrigo Lace. Having it at the ready, sitting there staring at me, is motivating me at the moment. Thanks Grace, for helping me get motivated!!
Don’t forget today is Earth Day. Are you doing anything special to celebrate?
