I’m not sure if this is very obvious, but I tend to have a few projects on the go, all at the same time. My boyfriend asked me the other day why I am always starting something new, and not just working on the things that I’ve had sitting around for ages. My attention span is not always long, and I like being able to pick up something different, if I find myself getting impatient with my current muse.
Also, I don’t like having a deadline (as such) for the things I’m making for myself. It turns it into much more of a chore, and that slows my progress.
So, true to form, a few nights ago I cast on my latest project. I ordered this gorgeous kit from the Dairing website. It will be a lovely, slouchy shrug when its done, knitted with 2 different coloured strands of 100% silk (how luxerous!). I love the way the silk is working up, its soft and supple, but still holds it’s shape. I have a long way to go until it’s finished, but I’m just doing a little more each night, and I’m sure it will be done before long.
I love to knit, don’t you?
