For the past six months (or more), I have been casting on new projects with abandon in a chaotic free-for-all. Remember this picture?
Something has happened. I now feel a compulsion to finish ALL my UFOs before I start anything new! (With the possible exception of new socks). The compulsion has extended to a compulsion to return to my formerly orderly state. I can’t quite understand it, but I’m going to go with the flow…
Look at the same chair now:
All my yarn has been tidied nicely into a basket, and all the yarn I had lying around with a ‘want to knit’ label is now put away until it’s actually being used. I have now reduced by UFO list to only five projects! (That’s Benbecula, the Sidelines Top, the Diminishing Rib Cardigan, a design in progress, and a freeform lap blanket). I don’t count the socks. Let us see how long this lasts. Most of the projects are more than 50% complete, so if I continue in the vein of virtuous knitting, I should be able to get something off the needles every week at this rate!
Even the arrival of a rather lovely lot of yarn (Happy Birthday to me) has failed to ignite the desire for a pretty new project:
New year, new me, perhaps?
