Linking up with Ginny at Small Things
This photo is my reality. One of my kitchen counters. I’d like to pretend that it just recently got out of hand but the reality is that unless we are entertaining, this is the norm. Some of those projects I am actively working on. Like the white baby blanket. The striped crochet blanket I pick up every so often and do a few rows. The rest of it? All projects that I lost interest in, the pink baby vertebrae needing a sleeve, the blue and orange thrummed mitts that need a mate, the brown baby hat that I felt too tired to read the charts for and never picked up again.
I’d like to think that by putting this pic out there that I’d diligently work at this pile and next week show you some free counter space. But the reality, if I’m being honest, is that for every project I finish, I immediately cast on another.
This isn’t even all of my WIPS, my purse contains plain socks, the van a baby hat, my bedside dresser a shawl and baby sweater, my closet countless unfinished items.
I justify it all by saying that knitting is supposed to be fun and relaxing. If those two things aren’t being achieved then what’s the point?
And I’m just as bad for reading, still haven’t finished Paris but in the past week I’ve read countless books on children, development, homeschooling, play etc
How about you? Are you a one project, one book at a time person? Or are you a more the merrier type?
