I don’t know about you, but I consider myself to be a monogamous knitter. One project at a time. Then I realised this is a misconception. I have one project at a time, but for a number of different categories.
There is the work knitting where I design something new for my online shop. Usually these projects stem from needing to make something for myself or someone else and not being able to find a pattern I like quite enough. Currently my work knitting is this:
I am designing a little cardigan for babies and toddlers that is completely reversible. I have finished the sample and I am now waiting for the test-knitters to give me their feedback. Hopefully this one will be released at the end of the month.
Then there is the At Lunchtime knitting that I take with me during the school week. This is a project that is simple enough to have memorised the pattern so I don’t have to keep track of any papers, and of a kind that can be easily picked up again after interruptions. So no lace. This category has just been completed! I have bound off and blocked an Age of Brass and Steam shawl.
This was a free pattern on Ravelry that I chose because I wanted to use up three balls of cotton that I had stashed. It is slightly larger in the border because I just kept knitting until I ran out of yarn.
Next is the home knitting. This category can be any type of knit for me, at the moment it is a project that I am designing on the go using my rainbow handspun yarn. It will be a cardigan for Molly. Sheild your eyes!
Then there is the hibernating project, in my case the Alouette sweater which I just can’t get motivated to work on. I want to wear it, I just don’t want to knit it…
That should keep me going for a while.
