Crochet.Community Gazette: Issue 3.06 (June 2016)

I have high respect for those who are so disciplined that they can work on a single creation, start to finish, before beginning a new project!

I, typically, get about three-quarters through something and I start to get the itch to do something different, whether it’s new yarn, another pattern or just a different hook. I am currently VERY close to coming to the end of an afghan I have been working on and I also just purchased six different yarns for future creations. My fingers seem to be working double-time as I try to finish up, while my brain is spinning, as I decide what each of the different yarns will become. Fortunately, I haven’t made any decisions, yet, about the new yarn, so my work-in-progress is still progressing! Maybe, just maybe, I will get it completed before starting my next “something”.

Anyone else battle that “itch” to move on before a project is completed?

Melissa ...

I often have no less than 4 WIPS, because the design ideas flow in and I have to get them started before I forget.. LOL, and yes, I often get the itch half way through to be done with the project and start something new.

Neen ...

I often want to move on before a project is finished especially if it is ‘pretty much’ done! Haha!

Debbie Pribele ...

it is a REAL struggle to finish off this afghan .. my hands are twitching, wanting to do something new!!! give me strength

FancifulThings ...

I agree with Melissa, I typically have 3-4 WIPS going. Then I see something else I want to make and get my act together and start finishing up things. Then there is the final assembly, blocking, weaving in ends, etc. and suddenly I’m overwhelmed.

So many things to make - so little time LOL

hbirchfield ...
