I look back over my blog and again and again I see posts about "plans", which anyone would think implied a determination to do the things I say I am going to do - what?! You actually believed I would follow through?
Who remembers my Barn-Raising Blanket plan? Why, I do declare, I was going to knit a square every weekend! If I had stuck to that plan, begun in earnest in January 2009, I would be swimming in blankets by now!
But I last updated my Ravelry page for this project in January 2010... by which point I had knitted 8 squares! 8 squares?! In a year?! And I haven't touched it since.
I was further reminded of this when I saw Emily's blanket progress. Isn't it looking lovely?
I need to find some fresh motivation. You would have thought that the promise of a snuggley blanket would have been enough, but clearly not. TSK!
Which reminded me that there are other Works-in-Progress which haven't seen much daylight recently. How about the Helleborus Yoke?
I remember stopping half-way round the yoke so that I would know where I was - but that was months ago. And all I remember about it now is that there is a mistake in that cable. And that I thought it might be coming out a bit too small.
I might just rip it out and salvage the yarn.
And then there are the Fiore di Notte armwarmers. Do I care about them anymore? Or have I lost the love?
Which leaves just the one WIP: Audrey in Unst.
Come on Roobeedoo, finish it before the New Year and make your granny* a happy woman!
*My mother's mother used to say that it was very bad luck to leave projects unfinished into the beginning of a New Year. She used to stay up all night if necessary to complete knitting projects before the end of December.
