I think I have known this for a while now, even if I was very disappointed when I was told the truth after a psychology test some years ago.
I always pride myself for being very precise, an eye for details, but let’s face it, I love to start something new, I have less momentum to finish a once-loved project.
Yesterday’s achievements were:
- The blue lace bolero. If I check my projects’ tab on Ravelry, I see that this one has been started at the beginning of February. It should have been a very fast project: no sleeves, one and only one piece. But it has been waiting for me to do the 2 seams that were required! Only 2 seams. What’s wrong with me?
Anyway, it is now done, and it looks very good… on Alice anyway!
- This project was finished much, much quicker. The question is why in a country where the lowest temperature is 25 degrees C, would you need 100% wool shawl? My answers are:
First - I love the colour,
Second - it is not that often that I found some yarn I love at Spotlight,
Third - when I started it, J. had just arrived in France and was enjoying chilly nights with 3 blankets. I was so envious and counting the days until we join her (since the weather is back to summer!).
The strategy to get to a Finished Object fast, has been to hide all the loose ends as I started a new ball. Still have to block it properly though. The pattern is from Marie-Claire Idées (January 2010 issue), by La Droguerie (and it is on Ravelry too).
Am I allowing myself to start a new knitting project now? I have this beautiful yarn from Sublime, I am tempted to design a baby jumper… Do you think it is calling for disaster… but it could also be so rewarding.
