I knit and knit and knit and spin and spin and spin and for so long, seemed to have nothing to show for the effort. My fingers made the fiber go round and round for days, weeks even, with little progress made. I stopped taking progress photos because they looked the same, day after day.
Or so it seemed.
Then suddenly one day, I had this!
Progress is being made after all. But I am re-learning a lesson I learned long ago and then let go by the wayside. Try to keep to two, or at the most, three WIPs. More than that, and even though I knit diligently on all, progress is slow. I need the gratification of a finished object now and then.
Right now I have a mitten and a half, half a sock, half a shawl, and half a scarf on the needles.
So I won’t be casting on anything new until I get my WIPs under control. Which should not be too long now – look at the progress I am making!
And of course I WILL start a new spin. I’m looking through my fiber stash in my mind to see what will be next. But I am knitting on that mitten while I ponder it. 😀
