Over the years I have started a lot of projects that I just haven’t finished. I have been collecting them and they move with me from one place to another. I took some pictures of them. I am sure that there are more hiding here and there but this is what I found:
Maybe that doesn’t look too bad? Well how about this:
There were balls of yarn that were all tangled together. They were wrapped around bags and each other. 😦 That bag all the way to the left? A blanket I have been working on since Alaska. I left Alaska in 2008… Each of those bags holds at least one WIP. Some of those projects were entered into Ravelry and never started!
Okay, so I didn’t put pictures of all of the projects here. That would have been a ton of pictures and it wasn’t worth it. Some balls of yarn got put back into stash even though they are caked. I untangled all the yarn and the leftovers are in a basket. That large red tub in the first picture was supposed to hold all my leftover balls of yarn instead of WIPs. I am going to try to get to where I have less WIPs so I can use it for this. I have a lot of leftover balls of yarn that I am not sure what I will use them for, but they are too much yarn to throw out. Some of the sock weight yarn will be incorporated into a baby blanket I am working on, but I don’t know about the rest.
So my plan… I still want to work on new things. My goal is to get to where I am only working on one project at a time and maybe a long term one like a blanket. I also want to cut down the WIPs. So I will try for a two out for every one new project I cast on. Hopefully this way the WIPs will get out of here quickly and I won’t feel guilty about them anymore. Right now I am working on a hat that I started when I first moved here to Germany. It is a bit fussy with twisted stitches in cables so I put it down. I picked it back up last night. Wish me luck!
