Finishing ALL THE THINGS…

… before going home for Christmas. At least that’s my goal. Well, maybe not all the things. Forget about the hibernating second “Yggdrasil” that some part of me thought it was a good idea to cast on months ago, and that hasn’t been touched since that day. But other than that, I think it’s safe to say I’ve been doing pretty good.

The reason behind the finishing madness? Why, Feeling slightly less bad when casting on something new, of course.

But then, let’s face it. We never feel bad for casting on something new. Not really. That’s kind of the point of casting on right? To knit something that makes us feel good. Something other than the tedious circular shawl with the ever-growing rounds of “yo, k2tog, yo, k2tog, yo,…”. Something other than the lace shawl that just won’t end. Other than the Jumper we know in our heart we’ll never finish.

So we cast on.

But there comes a point in every knitters life where they have to take a look at their bag, or bags, full of WIPs and decide. Finish, hibernate, or frog? For me, that time is usually towards the end of the year, and this year is no different. So I decided that, during the last two months of this year, I shall finish as much, and cast on as little as possible. The result so far has been a pair of socks, a lace shawl and a cowl finished withing the past two weeks. it does not really sound like much, but it feels good. Another shawl is nearing the last touches as well, and a knitting Resolution for next year has also been decided on:

In January, I will give myself permission to cast on whatever I fancy, no matter how many WIPs I end up with by the end of that month. But from there on out, any new Project will demand a WIP finished first. Or frogged. Fate shall decide.
