The Laziest Knitter

Look! I did a little more of the sock and that is all. I didn’t bind off the shawl. What I did do was spend a stupid amount of time looking at patterns on Ravelry and trying to decide what to cast on next. First I was thinking about little soft toys. I’ve got a bunch of leftover bits of yarn. That would be a productive project to tackle. Then I was thinking about how I’ve got a few sweater quantities of nice yarn that I’d like to cast on. This got me thinking about a pattern I came across when I was digging through the stash recently. Here is a link to the last time I talked about this pattern. I search for info on my blog about the pattern since I started it once before. That was when I found that post. As proof that I am the laziest knitter, I still haven’t finished the purple sweater I mention in that post. In case you’re not convinced of my laziness, I still have that green/blue yarn sitting in the stash.

So here I sit a couple of hours lost with no real plan, plenty of yarn, patterns and a guilty conscience over unfinished sweaters (oops, there is more than one) stuffed into the bottom of the stash admitting I’m a lazy knitter.

    I often spend time deciding on the next project before I even finish the first one. It’s good to dream and plan:). Will you try to finish one of the unfinished sweaters?

  2. I have dozens of patterns I want to make next. Ravelry is almost too awesome for my own good! I feel the struggle!

  4. Did you see my latest collection of small knitted toys, posted on kayak2016blog in Around New England, 3/15 or so? I had a lot of fun! And they are fast projects, while you decide which sweater to finish first – and if I could figure out how to put a grinning emoji here, I would!

    A recent destah found me finding undone sweaters, and realizing they are never going to get done! But did I do anything with them? Nope.

    Sometimes you just want to knit and don’t want to think about it. And that’s why Ravelry is there, to have fun browsing and patterns and projects will always be there.

  9. Nonsense! You are taking your time and enjoying your hobby. It doesn’t have to be a production rush the whole time 🙂 You are having fun, and that’s the important part!

    Far from lazy, my friend! Just human. The sweaters will get knit or not, depending on how they fit into your life now. I hope you find something fun to cast on!

    Sometimes you just get bored. When I do get beyond two WIPs, I make myself finish one before I start another.
