All the Things…..

I begin to wonder if it is a curse for crafter, whether it be quilting, knitting, crochet or any other craft that you do.  Starting a billion projects and not really finishing any of them, then knowing you have all of these unfinished projects and you have the nerve to start a million more.

I knit and crochet.  I am looking now at my stash and wondering if my hobby is actually collecting yarn.  I have so many projects that I started but I only have 1 to claim that is actually finished.  Okay, partially finished because I still have to weave in the ends.  So we will call it 99% finished.  LOL

It is a baby blanket for my goddess daughter who had her very first child. So would that be my great goddess daughter?  It was my very first finished crochet project.  Now mind you she has this precious little one at the end of October.  What, oh yeah it is Jan 7 and I still haven’t seen this little precious bundle of joy.  I am not worried she will outgrow the blanket.  But I do need to get my ass moving and get it done.

Pictures are below.

This was at the beginning.

This is it finished, well except for the ends that need weaving in and the shaping needs to be done.

So I think for this year I will strive to complete more.  Frog the items that I have no interest in anymore and only do projects that keep my interest.  If I do a project a month, I can have 12 projects done my December of this year.  We shall see.

I also want to read more.  There never seems to be enough time in the day to get everything I want to do done.  But I feel like my IQ is slipping from not reading like I use to.

So I am going to go separate clothes for laundry day tomorrow.  Then see what kind of cute yarns I already have to make a cute little baby hat for the cute little baby who is 2 months old now.  Yes I know it is 1:30 am on Thursday morning.  I work 3rd shift and this is my day off.  So shut it.

Oh I am going to see, if I can not purchase any new yarn (unless to finish a project) and use up what I have in my stash.  I do have a problem buying yarn.  I tend to buy yarn without a project in mind and that is why I have 3 cedar wood trunks full of yarn.  Don’t judge me I know ya’ll have stuff too.

I feel judged.

Have a great day.
