The Things We Tell Ourself

I’ve convinced myself that it is much more important that I finish my Loopy Academy TAG projects. They have to be done by the end of May. Everything else (ie cleaning) can be put on hold until I’ve finished this project and decided on and started the next. I’ve got the yarn so that is set.

So that being said, I’ve reached the end of the body of the cowl. I’ve just got the end (a folded hem that will be sewn) to do. A few more days and I should be done.

How are your projects going? Are you telling yourself things to get them done?

  1. I’ve finished the ugly brown socks, have 12 more rows on a shawl, started to tech-edit a child-sized sweater pattern I wrote 10 or so years ago, and just received the next sock pattern in the series. I want to start on the new sock pattern and need to go diving in my stash.

  2. I’m a few inches up the new hat design – sock yarn, stranded knitting, and done while sitting with Mom and responding to her, so not a quick knit! But it doesn’t take thought, just attention. And yesterday I finally got oldest granddaughter to pick a pattern for the sweater she asked for – last Christmas! – for which I have the yarn. That will go more quickly. Question is, do I finish the hat first, or jump right into the sweater? I would like to get big, bulky, WARM sweater done before it heats up in June!

    I’m pushing hard on my Water shawl, but I keep making mistakes. Luckily everyone else in the KAL has finished, so they are giving me lots of great tips!

    It is definitely much more essential to enjoy some crafting time than doing chores . After all, the dust comes back! That’s my motto if I am getting a lot of pleasure from a crafting spell! Currently I have too many projects on the go. I am casting on and not fjnishing ….. enjoying the knitting and not the sewing up of anything.

  8. I kept pressing myself to finish my 5 patch dogs I began sewing for my granddaughters for Easter. I managed to finish 3 do the granddaughters in Florida get there’s first. Hopefully by the time I get home I’ll have the other two finished. Hard when you have to always make 5 of each item. lol 😂
