I’ve never claimed to be a monogamous knitter but generally, I get overwhelmed if I have too many projects going at once. I like to finish things and working on twelve different projects at once doesn’t usually lead to the quickest FO’s.
At the same time, knitting sweaters takes a lot of time and dedication. My Cascades is coming along – I made it to the underarms of the body and started the cuff of the first sleeve at knit night this week. That sweater and I have been monogamous since I cast the thing on!
My eyes though, they’ve been wandering. I’ve been looking at my stash, imagining the possibilities; looking at my Ravelry favorites and comparing it with the stash…Hell, I even cast on the beginnings of my Hualpa Kimono last week to take some of the edge off (no good photos, the sun is scarce around these parts).
Even that doesn’t seem to be enough to keep me faithful to my sweater progress. Just the other day I sprung for Kat Riddel’s Peony pattern and I have just the yarn to use for it (yarn courtesy of my friend Freshy (who really needs to get back to blogging) from a years back). The only thing keeping me from casting on righthisverymoment is that the yarn hasn’t been wound into a cake yet….but my winder isn’t far from reach….
What are you working on this week? Are you a multi-project knitter or a monogamous one?
