I haven’t been knitting the past week because things are quite busy at work. Last Thursday I only got 3 hours of sleep because I was up against a deadline.
Obviously, I have a problem with procrastination. Have had the problem my entire life. I sometimes can’t get started on a task or project because I can’t see all the steps clearly in front of me. But then I realize I can’t work out everything without doing something.
Which has lead me to make a new knitting resolution. I have at least one project that’s started, but is a rather long term project. Something I won’t knit on exclusively until it’s complete. It’s a Habu Textile bag kit that I received for my birthday from the Purling Ps. The project is in a bag next to my favorite chair in the living room. If I sit in this chair for more than 15 minutes, I have to knit at least 1 row. This has enabled me to really make progress, and I have roughly 15 more rows (provided the measurements are on) before I start knitting the final handle! Woot!
This seems to be working for me. What kind of things help you get through a big knitting project?
