I’m antsy. I don’t like to have too many projects going at once because I know I’ll never finish them. One might say I’m loyal to the project I start; I don’t start another project until it’s finished. However I’ve taken on a big challenge with my first sweater and I need mental break. I’m participating in the current Knit Along in the Lion Brand Yarn Studio and if you’ve been following my posts about it, you know that I’ve been working hard to keep up with the class.
Taking A Break From Knitting … By Knitting Something Else
I thought I’d take on a few small projects as a way to take a break from my sweater. My friends who are twins just celebrated their 30th birthday (they say they just turned 25 … but I digress.) I love making gifts for my friends because they’re always made with love and they’re one-of-a-kind. And they love when I make them something special; they refer to it as “Made by Shi Stuff.” So I suggested some wristers and to make them special they could choose any of our premium LB Collection® yarns they wanted. They chose Angora Merino; Hadassah chose Pewter and Yaffa chose Blue Bell.
Even though I need to make two pairs of wristers, it’s a nice little break. It’s like Where is Waldo, sometimes you’re looking so hard for Waldo you need a break and once you come back, you find him right away. I’m hoping that these wristers are my break, and then I will come back to my sweater and zoom through.
How many projects do you have going at once? Or are you like me, and are a one-at-a-time project kinda crafter?
