The weather continues to fall in line with Project Spectrum’s grey, blue, and white theme for February and March:
And, for the fourth time in as many weeks, some more things are done, around here:
The Woman in White was an enjoyable read, all 730 pages of it, and next up (well, currently up, I should say) with a couple of weeks to spare is Brideshead Revisited. Hey look ma, I can read books again!
As I say, this is the fourth knitted item I’ve cast off in the last few weeks, and without immediately casting on for something new. I’m trying to start a new phase of my knitting life where I take projects one at a time (or two at a time), because lately it’s been more like five-or-six at a time and that’s too many for my psyche to handle. Most of the projects I’ve recently finished were things that were on the needles for a few months, and they were causing me stress with their unfinished-ness because they were holding me back from casting on new things that I wanted to start.
So, new plan. I will not allow my knitting to cause me stress. I will take pleasure in project anticipation without casting on all the time.
I will enjoy my finished objects for their own merits, rather than using them as an excuse to immediately start three new projects.
I will remember that limiting the # of current projects on the needles does not limit my knitting abilities, and that in fact it allows me more freedom to choose what projects to try next.
I will also remember not to be disturbed by mocking laughter, should anyone be amused that I feel the need to write lists like this.
Hey, I always say I like knitting for its challenges, right?
