Too many projects

and not enough of this




Why oh why do I start endless projects which I probably won't end up finishing any time soon!

Christmas stockings for the website




Wool to start a scarf





A random knitted tortoise (I think it was the patchwork which attracted me to it!)





Knitted 'paper' chains for Christmas



However, I did finish one project off last week - my patchwork ironing board cover - at last.  It's only taken over a year to complete!



How many projects have you on the go at the moment?

aawww WOW i adore that tortoise i would love one of those i have a real thing about turtles and tortoise's to me they represent a sense of freedom. I had a little turtle tatoo which i copied from my sons babygrow for my 30th birthday on my tummy. And those paper chains are lovely to. I have 2 patchwork quilts on the go at the moment. And more ideas for things i want to start in my head ;-)) dee xx

Love the clock and the Tortoise. I have loads of projects on the go. Trouble with me is when I start a project my brain starts working faster than my fingers! I started my Folksy shop so I could make sure I finished my projects and sell them - mmmmmmmm!

Hi,
I've just arrived from Planet Penny to say hello to a fellow member of 'The List'. I too have the Gentle Art of Knitting, and I too have the 'time' problem. There is a crochet blanket lurking which I started in a fit of enthusiasm when I first got the book...Maybe next year?
