Would that perhaps be a wedding garter being blocked on my table? Is there some kind of divine knitting intervention occurring to spur all of this WIP progress? Could I be on deadlines?
Well munchkins, it’s probably a mixture of a lot of things. For the garter, I did impose a deadline for myself. I’d like to get that wrapped up (by finishing the project and getting it into the mail) in the next week or so. I believe I can do a lot of the assembly today and Sunday in between all of my other activities going on this weekend. For the Flower Back Sweater, well, as I’m sure you’ve gotten the idea from my previous post, I’m done dealing with it on the needles.
This year’s knitting goal was to get things off of the needles, including the Icarus Shawl and an amigurumi project. I still have my Stash Afghan (which is not being counted in this endeavor). I allowed myself to start a pair of socks because the rest of my projects aren’t portable at all. I was missing knitting on the go a bit. But in the next week or so, I’ll be down to three active projects. I think if I can get the Icarus Shawl off the needles, I’ll start to feel like I can start some new projects. I want to clear out all the projects I’ve been “working on” for more than a year. I already know I have a bunch of things in my queue that I want to work on and other projects in my head too. Maybe then I’ll regain my knitting speed that I lost at the turn of the year.
