I know there are several knitters or crocheters out there that have several projects going at one time. My mom used to do it and at any given point she could be working on a scarf, a sweater and a pair of socks. I have such a hard time starting something else when I’m not finished with my original project. I tried it once and I just couldn’t do it. I kept thinking about the original project that I had started and how it was just sitting there waiting to be finished. I almost felt guilty for putting down my original project and picking up something new. I couldn’t enjoy the new venture I had started.
For example, right now I’m working on my Leftover Yarn Afghan and I am probably about 3/4 of the way done. But there is a little itch inside of me that is wanting to start on something else. Either dishclothes or a pair of socks. But I’m having a hard time putting down the afghan and starting my new project. It may be that I have a teeny tiny bit of OCD and just have to keep going until I finish what I started. Just not sure! But I’m having a hard time putting down the afghan to start on something else. Is it just me or does anyone else feel like this? Is it because I’ve only been knitting for a few years? Will it eventually become easier?
I don’t get much time to knit, maybe an hour every night after I get home from work and a couple of hours on the weekend so to knit an afghan takes a very long time for me. I’m ready to move on to something new but of course don’t want to discard the afghan.
Do you have more than one project going? How do you do it!
