I have come to know (not necessarily understand) but to know myself as a knitter pretty well lately. I am 100% accurate in stating that I will NEVER be a One-Man-Band! There are just not enough knitting hours in the day and there are too many fantastically fabulous patterns, yarns, and projects, to limit myself in such a hideously inhumane way. Hell I can't stay within' my calorie limits for 24hrs most days... in the will power department, I am sorely lacking.
My stash can rival most small town knitting shops and my WIPs greatly exceed the single digits but I have come up with a plan that I think will make me feel most productive, oganized, and be fullfilling. I will become a 3-way juggler. At any and all given moments... I will have 3 current projects that I will happily rotate daily, hourly, minute/by/minute....whatever the mood of the moment! The ongoing rotation will always consist of: a sock project, a scarf/shawl project; and a top of some sort. Substitutions may occur by replacing the FINISHED scarf/shawl slot with a bag/purse project etc. I am most happy when I am knitting and I am a multi-tasker... but I am sad to confess that I have VERY few finished items because I tend to jump ship before the iceburg approaches... therefore in order to quench my thirst to cast on and satisfy my yen for finished items I am implementing the menage a trois of knitting into my life.See what a few days of few days of R&R in the island sun can do for the psyche?!
and here's a shot of the current 3! Notice there are two socks in progress ~ one is the mate to the previously knit sock and one is the 1st of a new set (see my plan is already evolving), the gorgeous gold is the beginnings of the Featherweight Cardigan from http://www.knitbot.com designed by Hannah Fettig, and last but certainly not least the funktastic multicolored skein is soon to be Clapotis from http://www.knitty.com So there you have it I figure I am covering all bases ~ cardigan, socks, and shawl.... Go Me!
