It isn’t that I don’t like to finish things, I just really love to start them.
Not long after I started my Ravelry account, I became drunk with possibility. The patterns! The colors! The yarns! My queue quickly swelled to over 400. 400!?! I’m not sure I will knit 400 things in my lifetime. At least not while I’m working for a living…
My queue, I decided, is like a wish list. It is an inspiration file.
My projects page is a whole other beast… I do try to keep up with the general status of things, but I admit, my projects page is starting to look a little too ambitions. This is where I keep straight all of the reasons that I bought “that yarn” in the first place. I have actually purchased the yarn for every single thing here. (Please don’t tel my husband!)
My current status of WIPS is a touch intimidating:
I have my waiting room socks
The blanket I started for a friend two years ago
The blanket I started for a friend last fall
The mermaid tail blanket I started for a friend’s daughter last month….and one more just like it after that…
There is a cardigan that just needs a zipper
The sweater that needs half of a sleeve
and a sweater that needs a Netflix Marathon
There are two… I mean three scarves and one shawl
A ridiculous hat that my son insists he NEEEEEDS
and somehow, I am still itching to cast on for the Banyan Shawl.
What. The. Hell. Is. Wrong. With. Me??
