I was guest host at Knit@Nite a few weeks back. It was a blast but I made the mistake of casually mentioning that I’m working on 31 projects. Sort of. Some are from 2013, which is pretty cool since I had started knitting in 2009/2010. I think I should get an award for Longest Procrastination.
Knit@Nite is baffled at how I could have so many unfinished projects (honestly though, it’s very easy). So I promised to let them vote on what I should finish next. I am going to try to become knit-monogamous. I know myself well enough to know it probably won’t last long but I’ll do my best.
After subliminally trying to push Navelli (it didn’t work), Rosarito by This.Bird.Knits won. I suppose it makes sense to finish it since it’s 80% done and only has a mere half-a-million ends to weave in. I really do enjoy this sweater, it’s just that I had lost momentum after needing to order more of the Madtosh yarn. Did I know from the get-go that I’d need more of the Madtosh minis? Of course. Then why use them in the first place? Well duh, so I could order more yarn in the same shipment.
Anywho, a fire has been lit under me, I am motivated. As of today that is, since I fell asleep on the couch last night. My goal is to finish it by next Tuesday. My super ultimate goal is to finish one project each week so I can proudly stand tall on the Club Cumming stage and bask in the glory of Having Accomplished Something*
* Just roll with my delusion please. I know I’m not kidding anybody, I’ll have started 3 more projects over the weekend just because it’s a 3 day weekend…
