I did it. I started yet another crochet project, which is a shawl for my big sister. This means:
List of things I’m crocheting:
- Hexagons afghan
- Tunisian crochet afghan with lots of blocks
- A tablecloth
- A pineapple shawl
- A “Telegraph” sweater
List of things I’m knitting:
- A pair of self-patterning socks
- A blue lace scarf
I have seven projects going at the same time. The majority of them are crochet projects. I have been a very naughty crafter.
When I started the shawl this evening it was dark and rainy and guess what my first color on the Lace Ball self-striping yarn was? A blackish blue. I managed to increase to three pineapples and gave up trying to see where to insert my hook. This yarn is very fine and I’m using a 1.3 mm needle, so it was very hard to see my work, even with a lamp lighting my way. I’ll keep going on it tomorrow in the daylight.
Now that I officially have seven projects going I am very worried. I don’t think I’ll ever finish anything. This is the largest number of WIPs I’ve ever had going at once. I kept telling myself today, “you can’t start something else until you finish your blue lace scarf” but I caved. It’s self-striping yarn for a pineapple shawl, after all. I can’t say no to blue pineapples!
