But I really do have to wonder sometimes. Take the past two weeks, when - besides working on the Cranberry Waffle socks - I have taken on more projects. Why? You may well ask, as I have wondered myself.
Let's review: I have a pair of the aforementioned Cranberry Waffle socks on the needles, and a long-time-on-the-needles project of my Mallard Sweater, and my Turquoise Narragansett, which I have vowed to finish by the end of the summer. And there are other bits and pieces along the way.
So ... WHY in the past couple of weeks, have I felt compelled all of a sudden to start knitting:
1) What I am calling my Lemming Shawl. It's a KAL on Ravelry by the Loop Group. I wasn't going to even think of trying it, and then others started posting pictures of their completed ones. Of course, I bought the yarn and got started. As a matter of fact, I bought two more skeins in a different color to make another one at a later date!
2) But Oh, I wanted to make something for my new[ish] great nephew Parker, who lives in San Francisco. His parents are not much for homemade things, but I have made something for all of my other great-nieces and -nephews, and wanted to make something for him. I decided a toy was a good idea. So I started the Baby Bobbi Bear:
3) I decided to try to do something for the Ravellenic Games (formerly the Ravelympics). Of course, there is a "team" for those who want to finish WIPs, but did I join that one? It didn't occur to me, as clearly I didn't think it through at all. So, I have started Caeles:
I have until the end of the Olympics (roughly two weeks) to finish. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
What was I thinking? Why would I do all of this - or rather, try to - all at once? Oh diary, I fear that I have done something foolish here. Hello, my name is Bridget, and I have a problem ...
