For the last couple of years, I’ve been a multi-tasking knitter, meaning that I have multiple projects on the needles at the same time.  Over this past weekend, I realized that I need to cut back on my on the needles projects so that I can explore other fiber arts, namely weaving, spinning and locker hooking.  In total I have 13 UFOs in all fiber arts and that’s very distressing to me.  I feel as though I’m not finishing anything when actually I am.   I haven’t made a pair of socks for me since November.  So enough already!

I will now have one on-the-go knitting project (as in socks or mitts) that rides around in the car and will be queued for finishing so that it doesn’t ride around forever, one main large  knitting project (as in shawl or sweater) which will alternate between charity project and “for me” project, one gift project which I will work on Sunday afternoons, Oregon cardigan which will be worked on Fridays and whatever spinning (30 minutes to 1 hour per day) and weaving (Saturdays) I have in the works.

Now as proof that I really am finishing projects here are pictures of my clapotis in Loopy Legends Debra’s Celtic Treasures which I purchased at The Loopy Ewe

Here’s some corriedale-mohair homespun that will eventually become a pair of socks (I think).

And while I was in Gate City Yarns this weekend I found really neat buttons for my February Lady Sweater in Dream in Color’s Spring Tickle which is way on down in my queue.  (Have to get buttons when and where you can.)

I’m now working to finish a prayer throw.  My goal is Saturday.  I have two more bobbins of above to ply, a triangle shawl to assemble, a cotton kisses baby sweater on the needles and one to assemble, my St Louis socks in the car and Oregon Cardigan in the works.

To my knitting friends, happy knitting and to all grace and peace.
