Project Polygymy

I have too many works-in-progress. They are all at the ‘almost’ point, and that seems to mean I lose motivation, which is strangely counter-intuitive.

On the left is the second sock of the first and only pair of socks I have ever tried to knit. I started them three years ago. That’s some serious second sock syndrome. I am now almost at the point of turning the heel. Really if I set my mind to it I could have a pair of hand-knitted socks in time for the weekend.

In the centre photo is the back of my sweater. I am almost at the decreases. This should be inspiring me to knit faster. It’s not. I think I am going to be short of some very expensive wool.

The right is an on-(and on and on)going tapestry project that I think will be really lovely when it’s done, but it’s so boring to work on that I don’t know how I’ll ever finish! Maybe this should be my project for when wine and crafting overlap?

Then there’s this:


The beginning of my first charted knitting pattern. I am testing this thing rigorously to make sure I fully understand the pattern repeat. It is (touchwood!) going pretty well so far.

Here are some random ‘almost’ finished things to end with:

A bobbin full of stored merino singles. I need to do at least another full spindle’s worth and then ply it. And some of my original photos that I have made in to gift cards to sell. I haven’t listed them yet but if you are interested I am selling them in sets of 4 for NZ $12.00 plus postage. All the money I make from these is going towards a series of prints I am getting made for a solo-exhibition of my work…expensive but exciting!
