Project inventory9:18 PM
It never occured to me to do an inventory of my unfinished projects, until I started documenting them on Instagram. Excluding those whose status is "discontinued", the list is still quite long. The first one is only a sketch with an idea for the yarn, but let's exclude that for now. Starting from the latest additions, Peippo cardigan for Troll Princess is so far only a drawing and two skeins of Noro Haniwa yarn:
Haapana pullover is made of Malabrigo lace. Front is almost done, back started.
I don't always design what I knit, sometimes I try a pattern written by someone else and only slightly modify. The last one is purple pullover from Novita winter 2012 magazine. This one might have been in the making since winter 2012, but now that I found it and realized that it's all knitted I will go ahead and finish it.
That makes a total of nine unfinished objects. You need to have a couple of projects going on simultaneously, though, because there are different kinds of knitting situations. Most demanding is reading: that requires so much concentration that anything beyond ribbing is too complicated. Then for knitting in public you need to have something small enough to carry around. And the rest you can do while watching TV. If you don't watch much TV, then that part kind of piles up, as it includes the blocking and seaming of the pieces knitted on other occasions. Finally, there's the design part, which really requires all your attention, so you can't do it while doing anything else.
The plan is to share the progress of these babies with you! I think cutting down to half of this would be a good goal, but I kind of like this spread from plans to almost finished items. Let's see what happens.
