Last week, I went a bit wild and started four projects in four days. We know we should not, but we all do it, right?
- On day 1, I started cutting out templates and pieces for a Christmas tree skirt I have intended to make for at least 2 years.
- On day 2, I started making a knitting bag for a friend.
- On day 3, I cast on a knitted baby blanket to use up the mountain of yarn I still have left over from the blanket I knitted as a wedding present.
- On day 4, I rediscovered some bright blue pompom fringe and pulled out every scrap and fabric from my stash to start a scrappy cushion cover.
Needless to say, I did not finish all of those projects, and not one of these starts brings me any closer to finishing the hand quilting I need to do by the end of the month; however, I did finish the knitting bag last night. Hurrah!
This is the fourth project bag I have made using Jodie’s work in progress bag pattern. (You can see the others by clicking the ‘knitting bags’ tag.) I seem to be in a Jodie fangirl phase. I used her pattern for the bag and her fabric for the lining. Last week, the pin I ordered from her also arrived in the mail.
Am I alone in my need to start more things than I can reasonably finish?
