I’m sure that this post will strike a chord with most of you: too many projects, too little time. Sound familiar? Some days this gives me a glass half full feeling – yay, I will never run out of fun things to do! – and other days I get a glass half empty feeling – how am I ever going to complete all the projects I want to do??
I was poking around in my stash yesterday, thinking about how I really ought to photograph it and get it all listed on Ravelry, and I came across my fibre stash. Whooo-eeeee. I don’t have the time to knit all the things I want to, let alone to spin as well! How do other crafters do it? Do they allot a certain time period a day for each craft? Or do you pick a craft and stick with it?
I have been concentrating on a new pair of socks I started for Tony last week – I have a little mission, to finish both socks in a month (that’s fast for me!). But yesterday afternoon, I laid the sock aside, and pulled out my spinning wheel. I did about an hour, then had to stop because my right wrist was aching. I need to ease back into it! I was relieved to see that I haven’t forgotten the skills though, and I had no trouble in matching my spinning up with what was already on the bobbin. I think maybe I’ll try to spin for half an hour every afternoon, and save my knitting for the evenings.
Do you think I’ll get more done that way? I hope so! What’s your tricks for fitting it all in?
