Since I boldly posted that I had put 12 WIP's in a basket and vowed to finish them way back in December, I felt I owed you an update on how those projects were coming along.
Oh, brother. Hardly a change.
Only one of the twelve has really emerged as an FO. I finished the Bias-Knit Scarf from Lisa R. Meyers' book, The Joy of Knitting (yea!), but then a pair of socks for my sister leaped into the whole affair, because I arranged a swap with her (more on that later). The one crochet project that was here has now been upgraded to a more active basket, which also holds a lace shawl in progress. I took out a couple more projects that were being worked up for designs. I think it will go more smoothly (and with less guilt) if I keep this basket only for personal projects, whether for keeping greedily or giving to someone else.
The biggest confession is that I have let other projects get me sidetracked. You saw some of them last month in the NaCroMo activity. Another is in the upper right corner. Yeah, that's a pair of slippers I just had to cast on yesterday
(more on that later, as well).
I have no willpower. The yarn is my master.
So, you six pair of socks and one scarf remaining in the WIP basket--I renew my pledge to you! One by one I will tackle you. There, I said it here, so I have to do it.
Are you the master of your WIP's, or do they plague you and mutter blasphemies at you from some corner of your otherwise peaceful home? Your confessions will be handled safely and with large compassion here. I understand.
