At the beginning of the year, I took the time to go through every bag of unfinished knitting I had in my house. What I found was surprising.
First, there were three whole bags of projects. Not small, easy to carry, throw in your purse bags, either. These were actual tote bags stuffed with projects on needles, extra yarn and instructions!
Inside all these totes were a total of 17 unfinished projects. 17!!! I was able to discard and unravel four of them for various reasons. Another project was only five rows from completion and I quickly completed it and put it away.
That left me with 12 unfinished projects. The idea of competing them all was daunting. Some are halfway done. Some are on the “world’s tiniest needles” and will take forever (probably why I stopped working on them.) One is missing the necessary yarn to complete. Etc., etc., etc.
I decided that I would need a plan of attack. If I spent about an hour every week, I would eventually get there. And if I vowed not to start a new project until these were complete, I would be even more inspired to stick with them.
So every Sunday morning, I work on these previously discarded projects. For the past several weeks, I have done a minimum of two rows on each project.
It’s slow progress, but it’s progress. In fact, I have already finished a scarf and a wrap! Only 10 to go!
