How many WIPs at once is a topic that invites endless discussion from knitters and fiber artists all the time. Today, it’s my turn.
I’ve always been one of those knitters who’s got two or three, max of about five or seven (around the holidays) projects going on at once but lately (late·ly/ˈlātlē/ – (adverb) the past three or four projects’ worth of time) I’ve only had one on the needles. This isn’t to say I’ve been working on a single project for the past three or four projects’ worth of time, just that the past three or four projects have been the only one’s on the needles at the time they are being knit.
I almost think it might be healthier for me at this point to have more than one project going at a time but can’t seem to bring myself to cast on for anything new even when forcedinspired.
I’m not sure if this is an evolution in my knitting and I’ll continue to be this way for the forseeable future or if this is just a cycle coinciding with so many exciting, spectacular, behind-the-scenes awesome things in my knitting world.
What side of the debate are you on?
I’m going to go try to cast on something new *right* now – wish me luck!
This yarn came in the mail the other week and, really, isn’t it gorgeous? The story behind the color is that with a sad ending and as a result a percentage of the sales of this particular limited edition colorway went to families who have lost a baby.
I’m happy to have supported such a cause and now all that’s left is designing a project suited for such special yarn.
The yarn is from Three Irish Girls and it’s my first experience with them but the communication was pleasant, the yarn is gorgeous and the merino/nylon content should hold well against wear.
