Whenever I walk past that thing I was knitting last winter, or that pile of stuff in my office, I avert my eyes. I just keep on walking. I can't let myself think about it, or listen to it's pathetic "Finish me! Finish me!" cries, or I'll freeze from my sheer inability to accomplish anything. It's a melodramatic scene between neglectful crafter and work-in-progress. A sad, sad affair.
Thing is, unfinished projects make me c r a z y. Really. So I'm airing my dirty laundry to the world, and showing you my list of things that need finishing ASAP. What can I say? I need the accountability:
I finished knitting this back in 2012 (I think?), and I like it, but the color is wrong for me, so I bought some dye last winter to see if I could rekindle the fire between us. Now I just need to actually dye and re-block it.
This project is actually the least severe of my offenses. Socks are something I plan to have on the needles at all times, and to carry with me for dull moments in the waiting room, or at the bus stop. It's just that I haven't been carrying these around lately, so I haven't been making any progress.
This one hurts my soul, especially now that the weather is warming up and I won't be able to wear it much until next fall. Still, I'm so excited to finish this project. I love the pattern, the yarn, and I'm already on the second sleeve! It really just needs a few nights worth of attention to finish.
Sometimes, when tackling a project for the first time, I get hung up on the unknown, and that's what happened with this quilt. I'm ready for the next step... the batting, the backing, and the edging. I just need to do some research to figure out how.
This soon-to-be bookshelf:
I don't think I've mentioned this project here yet, but Matt and I went and bought some wooden crates to make a bookshelf in the office last month, and it's almost ready. I've stained the wood, and added a single coat of polyurethane, but it could do with another coat. If I can get my act together, this bookshelf could go up sometime next weekend.
And finally: My giant pile of to-be-mended clothing. (not pictured)
