Wednesday is the last meeting for our Knit-A-Long group. Our new Brand Ambassador, Shira, is participating in this year’s Knit-A-Long! She’s sharing the experience of making her first sweater! (This post was originally published on the Lion Brand Notebook.)
I’m antsy. I don’t like to have too many projects going at once because I know I’ll never finish them. One might say I’m loyal to the project I start; I don’t start another project until it’s finished. However I’ve taken on a big challenge with my first sweater and I need mental break. I’m participating in the current Knit-A-Long in the Lion Brand Yarn Studio and if you’ve been following my posts about it, you know that I’ve been working hard to keep up with the class.
Taking A Break From Knitting … By Knitting Something Else
I thought I’d take on a few small projects as a way to take a break from my sweater. My friends who are twins just celebrated their 30th birthday (they say they just turned 25 … but I digress.) I love making gifts for my friends because they’re always made with love and they’re one-of-a-kind. And they love when I make them something special; they refer to it as “Made by Shi Stuff.” So I suggested some wristers and to make them special they could choose any of our premium LB Collection® yarns they wanted. They chose Angora Merino; Hadassah chose Pewter and Yaffa chose Blue Bell.
Even though I need to make two pairs of wristers, it’s a nice little break. It’s like Where is Waldo, sometimes you’re looking so hard for Waldo you need a break and once you come back, you find him right away. I’m hoping that these wristers are my break, and then I will come back to my sweater and zoom through.
How many projects do you have going at once? Or are you like me, and are a one-at-a-time project kinda crafter?
