So here's to having some clarity and remembrance about what I wanted (in part) out of these weekly posts!
So the whole point of this digression was for me to remind myself and share with you what else I wanted to share with you each week...enter the WIP!!! (cue dramatic noises)...
Being the prolific maker I am, I've usually got a number of projects hanging about my space in various states of "not nearly done enough". Don't get me wrong, I'm really not a dabbler - I regularly finish things in batches - but I do like to keep things interesting which means I have to have variety otherwise I get mentally bored (not to mention many things I do take either excessive amounts of concentration or are very repetitive), so a well placed break or change of pace is good.
While blogging this week I found myself waiting entirely too long for some pictures to load so as the page did its thing and my computer slowly complied I started this little number...the colors sort of remind me of a stormy ocean and I've got the repetition of six going on...so I'm thinking of naming this after Yemaya, the Orisha associated with motherhood and also some bodies of water.
But not to be boring by any means I came across three partial skeins of one of my favorite yarns, Malabrigo Merino Worsted. Originally bought for other projects once they served their initial purpose the leftovers went to live on my yarn shelf until I was inspired to work with them again. In pulling them out and setting them aside I saw a flash of Spring-y inspiration and knew I had to make something soon with them altogether...
Sooner or later my project queue grows monstrous as it is now and then it's just a bit of a mad dash to get things to a state of done. But with me sharing I have the hopes that that will inspired a wee bit more focus - after all, I don't want to leave you hanging or show the same lack of progress on the same things week after week!
In the comments below share with me...
- Do you have a huge project queue?
- Do you like to start one project and finish it before you start or consider others?
