I’ve managed to transform a couple of WIPs into FOs, which means I feel less overwhelmed because I have fewer things in progress. The flavor of the week, that had been abandoned temporarily, is the pineapple shawl for my sister.
This time I hung it off a hanger, which is promising. It means that it’s big enough to drape over something. The yarn ball only has three color repeats left. This is good news, because it means I’m almost done. It is also slightly disappointing, because I was thinking of borders, but I don’t I think I’ll have enough yarn for one. This is only slightly disappointing because I envisioned a border just to have fun crocheting it. The shawl will look just as wonderful without it.
I have resisted the temptation to start any new projects (Go me! Fighting the good fight!). I am not even working on my usual pair of socks that I always have going. This means that the WIP stats are going down. All my projects are now crochet and cross stitch. I have no knitting in progress. That’s fine. I’m not going to start anything new until I finish my cross stitch pumpkin, the pineapple shawl, and my crochet sweater. The Celtic Wheel cushion (cross stitch) and two crochet afghans can continue with their WIP status for a while longer. However, I plan to work diligently on my hexagon afghan before starting anything new. The goal is to bore myself with the afghan until I can’t take it anymore and then start a new project or maybe I’ll feel like working on the Celtic Wheel cushion. Hope certainly floats, doesn’t it?
