I challenged Eileen to finish one project a week. The finishing included sewing buttons. She cleared almost all her projects. She was very proud of herself (as am I). It was tedious and she rose to the challenge.
When her daughter was in labor, she sat in the waiting room and started knitting toddler hats for grand kids and when those were finished she kept going. The yarn was flowing, she kept knitting hats. Pretty soon everyone in the waiting room had hats. It kept her from going crazy while her daughter was in labor. I can just picture random people walking around with hand knit hats. Makes me smile.
So if you have a yarn that gets 3.5 stitches/1″
She also knit the corresponding baby blanket. This hat/blanket combo is really cute. It calls for worsted, however, she knit it with Baby Cashmerino (Sport: 55% Wool, 33% Microfiber, 12% Cashmere, 137 yards).
I am duly impressed at how my knitters rose to the finishing challenge. I need to take a page from their book.
Answer me this…
How many projects do you have on hooks and needles?
Of those, how many projects are you actively working on?
I’ll tell you my answer if you tell me yours.
‘Fess up, it’s good for your knitter/crocheter’s soul.
