It's a well established fact that I have crafting ADD. I am physically unable to to work on one project at a time. I don't think that I have ever finished anything without starting something new or spending time with a WIP. It's fine with me. It works. My husband doesn't understand - just like he doesn't understand why I insist on leaving the house at the very last minute - no matter where I'm going (I'm not usually late, but I am never early!)
As I was gathering the pictures for this post it dawned on me that my insatiable desire to try new things is actually good for me. Every time a publisher sends me a book to review it's an opportunity to feed my need. What I mean is ... if I were to only work on one thing at a time from start to finish it would take me ages to prepare for a review. Working on multiple projects at the same time lets me get a feel for the patterns and in turn the books much more quickly while at the same time stimulating my creative serotonin. It's my happy way of multitasking!
Let me show you what I'm working on today: A basic ankle sock from Happy Feet, a book devoted totally to tootsies! I'm giving the two circ method a try and hoping that I have finally found the right project for this pretty yarn I won from Danielle at A Stash Addict well over two years ago (more about that later!)
Next up is a little knit pear pincushion from 50 Pincushions to Knit & Crochet. It's my first attempt at knitting something small and round(ish). My initial impression: crocheting small round things is way easier!
And to wrap it up for today it's the Triangle Tulip Shawl from Lovely Knitted Lace. I'm quite pleased with my progress on what the book describes as a "perfect pattern for beginners". The first pattern I tried was a scarf using the yarn from A Stash Addict. Turns out I'm not quite ready for knitting nupps with skinny yarn and tiny needles!!
Of course there are more, but we can talk about those another time!
Thanks so much for stopping by and spending a bit of your day with me.
Until next time friends,
Be Blessed and Stitch & Read with Love!
