I’ve had cast-on-itis lately. I keep starting projects and not finishing many. I also haven’t posted much here as I tend to only post my Works In Progress (WIPs) on Instagram and not here. Part of my crazy beginnings have been due to changes in my schedule.
This is how I currently have my whole design schedule laid out. It looks insane, but there’s a method to my madness (I hope). Someday I’ll talk more about it.
While we were camping I know I mentioned I was working on a pair of mittens. My goal was to finish them before we arrived home. Good thing for me I got them done on Saturday because I was physically and mentally wiped out on Sunday.
My next plan was to finish a second pair of mittens 3 days later. What was I thinking?! Especially since 1) I had to go back to work full-time and 2) these are double-knit which means it takes me longer to make even simple stitches because of the switching back and forth in colors. It was clear I wasn’t going to finish on time so I changed gears.
I moved up a scheduled FO from later in the week. I planned to work up a boot cuff design I’d had written down years ago but never actually made. Trouble is, mid-stream I knew I didn’t really want to make a boot cuff – I wanted to make cowl instead. AND … wouldn’t a hat to match be awesome? Uh oh. That means I won’t get this project done in time either.
I ended up revamping a lot of my schedule this week. Good thing those stickers are removable! And then I cast on a new item…
Now I’m working on a hat design. My deadline for this is, um, today. However, hats are quick and with the Packer game and the Olympics on tonight I should be able to finish :-). Most of these deadlines aren’t hard-and-fast rules either. I just have a few I want released by a specific date because it makes sense.
What are your current projects right now?
