I decided to include my knitting and crochet WIPs this week because I don't quilt all week and I'm enjoying knitting and crochet so much I'm starting projects like crazy, but having a really hard time finishing them! And it's so funny because I'm the same way at work. I love starting new projects, I get all excited about brainstorming ideas, getting the project plan done and then putting prototypes and storyboards together. But then when the projects starts to slow down a bit or when I hit a bump in the road, I get a little discouraged and it takes a lot for me to stay focused on the job and get the project finished.
At work, I don't really have a choice, I have to finish the projects I work on. I probably wouldn't keep my job for very long if I can`t finish what I start. But with my hobbies, it's almost as though I give myself permission to "quit" on a project. I have quilt tops that have been sitting in a drawer for over a year waiting to become a finished quilt, I have BOM blocks that have been waiting for me to sew them up for months and months. And now I seem to have transferred this nasty habit onto my knitting and crochet! Not good.
I hope to have all my quilting WIPs finished during 2012 and I'm now also going to keep track of my knitting/crochet WIPs as well.
I completed the March Schnibbles (the top only) this weekend. You can read about it here. I also made my very first zipper pouch this weekend, but more on that tomorrow.
Completed projects: 1 (zipper pouch)
In progress: 10 (most of which need a backing, some quilting and binding!)
New projects: 1 (zipper pouch)
I started this pillow cover weeks ago to go with the Granny Square baby blanket I made. But I ran out of yarn in those colours so need to get more. I plan on using this tutorial to complete the pillow cover.
Next, is a sweater I started for myself months ago... probably more than a year ago! This is a super easy pattern I found in a book I own. The colour is a soft pink and I'm using cotton so it should be perfect for this summer... If I can get it finished!
And finally, I started working on a new granny square blanket last week. I picked some vibrant colours for this one and I'm using Sugar 'n Cream 100% cotton. So far, I'm loving it!
Completed projects: 0
