I just had to write a quick post to share this: I am officially a girl with no WIPs!! I have been concentrating on working through my WIPs this past month and today I finally cast off on my last project. This is not counting the blankets I have on the go though, since I don't count them as WIPs because in my eyes they are long-term projects that I work on here and there.
I don't think in all of my knitting life that I have ever not had any projects (or stacks of projects) on the go before. I have to be honest though, I thought it would feel different, more thrilling I guess, to have nothing on my needles or hooks. But I'm actually relieved that it doesn't. I've come to find out that I like to be working on things, and not having any projects can feel a bit lonely. It does feel great to have projects that have been on the go for quite a while all finished up so they can be used. And I have to confess that it is nice not to have such a long list hanging over my head.
I'm hoping that I can keep my WIPs down to a few at a time from here on out so that I don't end up stressed by my own projects again. But I definitely know that I will not be one of those people who only has one project on the go at a time. I need to have some variety in my knitting/crocheting life.
Now that I have made the official announcement and have taken some time to just bask in the "no-project-zone", I'm ready to cast on for something new. I got an awesome skein of yarn in the mail today from my Itty-Bitty Valentine swap partner Richelle, so I am going to start a new pair of socks!
Have a great weekend everyone, and take time to enjoy your WIPs,
