Round and Round We Go

The Silver Creek Gansey in moving along. That's basically all the knitting I got done yesterday.

Syl of Beadlizard asked me how many project that makes on my needles. Um, well I don't know, and I really don't care. It used to bother me that I had so many projects going at one time, but then I learned to embrace my short attention span. I enjoy working on several things at one time to keep me from getting bored. I do cast on more than I'll finish. I know that I have projects that I'll never finish. I love to cast things on... sometimes just to "taste" the pattern.

I will say that I've already been more productive this year about finishing things than I've done in the past. I think part of this is that I'm happier with my knitting skills and the projects are more successful than in years past. Last year I had a lot of things I was super happy with and this year I've been pleased with the things I've finished.

I try to keep one "main" project going... the project I want finished and have a couple others that give me a break from that main project. Right now my main project is the Not So High Cabled Tank... and I do want that one finished. I think I'm having a bit of a mental block with it since I'm changing the neckline and with not much success. The Silver Creek Gansey is a nice break... just knitting around and around.

So basically, I like to cast on new projects. I may not like eating at buffets, but I sure do like knitting at them!!!

Happy Knitting!!!

  1. I think your ability to store so many in progress projects in your mind is amazing, frankly. After about half a dozen I lose track of the little things I'd planned to do differently and end up staring at the needles *knowing* I figured out this or that tweak, but not being able to find it in the clutter of my mind.

    Love your cast on, and isn't it nice sometimes to speed through an expanse of cream stockinette? --Syl
