For some reason, I can't seem to get a knitting project finished. I have several projects started and almost all of them are things that I would like to have finished. I don't really have any projects that I've completely given up hope on finishing.
Several of the projects that I have started are laying out by my chair in the living room. I would label these as active projects because I have done some knitting on them recently. A couple of them are even close to completion. My chevron scarf, for example, should be done any day now. If only I would sit down and finish it.
I also have 2-3 projects that haven't seen fresh air or the light of day in at least a year. These projects all have been started, but have been bagged up and stuck in a closet. I want them finished too. I still like the idea of having the finished object the project represents, but for some reason I put them aside.
Instead of working on any of these projects , I end up hunting through my stash and pulling out some miscellaneous skein of yarn and start something completely different (see above photo; I'll post more on this little project later). Or worse yet, I spend time searching for a new project that I want to knit that usually requires a yarn purchase.
I do like the whole process of knitting. I guess I just need to accept the fact that I'm not a knitting machine and finished objects are only part of the goal. Are you able to stay focused on one project at a time? What is your secret?
