Last weekend's TNNA show was a big wake up call for me: I need to finish some things up so that come fall (which in retail starts in late July/early August!) I will be able to partake in some of the new yummyness without having to move out of my apartment to store it all . . . which bring us to, of course, the list. I figure it's easier to pick the projects that are the closest to being finished, get those finished, and then move on down the list.
Since I know that I have a tendency to rebel against even my self-imposed rules, I won't make myself promise to finish everything before starting something new, but I want to keep the new project number lower than the finished project number . . . so for every 2 projects off the list I can add one. That should be easy enough to live with.
And just for the record, the Twisted Flowers socks are no longer a WIP, I ripped them out. They were too tight and too fiddly, too much work to go hidden on my feet!
So here's my list of projects to finish within the next month (in order of most finished to least finished):
This is not a completely list since it doesn't include several long-term projects (like the Map of the World blanket and Little Rivers, just to name a few), but it doesn't bother me at all to have those HUGE projects still lingering. It's the small ones which are so close to done that are hanging over my head so heavily . . .
Before the summer's over I want to knit at least a few more more summer-weight projects, I recently bought two bags of summer yarns and have a project picked out for the one yarn but am planning on what to make with the other (navy Wool Cotton, so yummy!). The navy is calling to me so loudly that it should be pretty good incentive to get some of the above off the list!
What's really bad is that I already have a pretty long list of projects to cast on next: the dress from Runway Knits, the Twinkle cardigan from the current Vogue, the first String Direct project . . .
Not to mention all the designs floating around in my head, waiting their turn to come out!!
I think I need a knitting assistant.
