Knit Pickin'

An update on the green scarf:
I should be done with this by now, but I've not done much knitting this past week. Have been pre-occupied with other stuff and this has fallen by the wayside as a result. I picked it up again yesterday and made a serious dent in it's progress. I hope to finish it this evening. Tomorrow at the latest. Am ready to move on to other things. This is about 3/4 of the way done right now.

I have an afghan partially done that needs finishing and want to do that when the scarf is finished. I started crocheting the afghan a couple of months ago, and put it down to delve into more knitting projects. It's time to finish up unfinished projects.

That's my head though. I get started on a project, and then all these other ideas for other projects flood my brain and suddenly I MUST start something else. It drives me batty because I'm slow to finish projects to begin with: I'm not the fastest knitter in the world...and don't aspire to be. Or the lack of money slows me down. Can't get to the next batch of yarn. Or I get side tracked by something completely unrelated to crafting.

So, first I need to learn to be more disciplined in 'finishing what I started' before I move on to the next thing. And that's such a haaaaaaard thing to do. I always want to do more, and halfway scared that if I don't 'do them all RIGHT NOW', I'll lose my inspiration for some of it and THEN WHERE WILL I BE? I shudder to think.

Oh well. One thing at a time. It's all good.

Have a knit pickin' good weekend, ya'll!
