KCBWDAY1: Busy Like a Bee
Having always found out too late about the annual Knitting and Crochet Blogging Week in previous years, I am very excited to take part this year!! KCBWDAY1 The House Cup:
The challenge for day one, for those of you not taking part, is to determine your "house" - namely what group of crocheter or knitter do you fall in to? I used to be a one project at a time kind of person - never casting on until something else was finished, but recently, I tend to have multiple projects on the go. Am I, like Sarah, polywipamous? Naturally, no. In fact, I actually don't like my attention being pulled from any one thing. I want to get lost in a project, throw myself in it completely and not look at anything else until it is done.
However, a look around the studio will tell you a different story.
This is just my deadline swatches - 4 for this month's book project target and 2 for other publications.
Each serves a purpose:
- one for the car and cafes
- one for reading emails
- one for TV viewing
With another yarn delivery expected this week, no doubt there will be at least one more WIP on the go. Could I leave the new project until the one in the middle is finished? Probably. Will I? Probably not. For as much as I want to be someone who stays with one project until the bitter end, I fear I have become a bit of a new project addict - loving the initial swatch and design stage and then having to slog through to get it done.
So, as much as I want to be a Monkey, I will be joining the house of bee.
