I’m just going to toss this out there; partly because I know no one is reading this, mainly because I want more culpability than writing it down in my journal, I want no more than 15 projects going at once by the end of this calendar year.
“Hmmm?” you (the nonexsistant reader) says, “That still seems like a lot.”
As it stands, I have 15 knitting projects going, 1 crochet project half finished, 7 cross stitches, 2 embroidery projects and one diorama which needs some artist embellishments, plus a number of things on the darning pile. It’s time to get serious and whittle down a bit so I can start new things without an avalanche of project bags smothering me in my sleep. Or maybe that’s my guilt trying to smother me (sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference).
My goal is to have no more than 15 projects in the works by the end of the year. 15 being the number of choice because it’s 2015. And no, before you ask, I can not up that number to 16 because logically 2016. That’s me finishing 11 projects and a pile of darning by December. Because I am not going to think about those projects I might want to start for people’s babies, or weddings or god-forbid Christmas.
If I do this by December 31st, 2015 I can buy myself a ball of black Chroma fingering yarn to make Cold As Fuck mittens. Which I started and decided to frog since I didn’t get very far and the yarn is two different weights.
So that is my goal. Simple. Easy. With a gold star at the end.
