I don’t know how people who rotate works-in-progress do it!
I have three projects happening at once, and I just hate it – I want to be working on all of them. I feel unsettled – I work on one and the other two are dancing around the room shouting “what about me, do some more on me”.
I haven’t touched my blog in such a long time as I didn’t have anything to show for all my work; nothing seemed to be making headway.
So what are these three projects?
Tiffany Window – a Chapter Book Project from the American Needlepoint Guild:
I haven’t put in the dark lines that represent the lead lighting of the window as I wasn’t sure whether or not I want them. I think I can add them in successfully later on if I decide I want them, but I will wait until I have done the stems and outlines. I’m feeling quite unsettled about it, in the meantime.
A shawl for my mother-in-law:
I think the clever closure on this shawl will work quite well for MIL as she is bed-ridden and this will cover her shoulders nicely on cooler days. At least I hope it will – I think it may be a bit too short though I might be able to lengthen it with blocking. In the meantime I am feeling quite unsettled about it. It’s a free download from Carols’ website although there is no picture there (there are pictures on Ravelry if you’re a member there, just search for Carol’s Clever Little Shawl).
So there I am. Feeling very unsettled having 3 projects on the go.
Which one should I work on? How long should I work on it before switchiing to another? How do I get over this feeling of not making headway because nothing is getting finished?
If you work on a few projects in rotation, how do you do it? Any tips?
Or should I just give up and do one thing at a time?
