The other day a friend commented about the size of my WIP list - I think it hit home just how large it is, even though the OH had been trying to tell me this for months. What can I say? I have startitis.
In an attempt to make the pile of project bags shrink I joined the '7 WIPs in 7 Days' group on Ravelry. I have good intentions, I've made my list. I've gained some enthusiasm for some of my hibernating projects and they have moved on again. A couple haven't been touched yet as I have been out during those evenings so far.
My list consists of:
- Monday: Perianth Blanket
- Tuesday: Stasis Cardi
- Wednesday: Nuvem
- Thursday: Grey Cardi
- Friday: Rams and Yowes Blanket
- Saturday: Garden Gate Socks
- Sunday: Rams and Yowes Blanket (again)
Although I've realised that I've selected too many large items for my first list, I need more smaller items to get the list of WIPs smaller. I may need to revise it.
Even with all these good intentions I've decided to cast on (yet) another project - the Starsky Cardigan. My reasoning is that the weather here has taken a real turn towards Autumn this week and I'd love a large snuggly cardigan. I've ordered some Cascade Eco+ in the turtle colour and can't wait to get started. It's chunky weight wool and on big needles, it should be finished soon right? Please agree with me. Then I promise my 7WI7D list will get right back on track.
