I have a really short attention span. I start on so many things with great plans of getting them finished but then something more fun comes along ….a new idea….and I just have to try that out instead.
Do you remember these?
They just lack some embroidery and then they would be finished.
I got as far as one coat of white paint and then I grew tired of it.
Or my brown linen tunic…..so very boring now!
Or the skirt I started making using a jumble sale finding, a 70: ies pillow cover. Not nearly finished.
…and last but not least - these! I feel ashamed to tell you but I haven’t made that second sock yet. And how I bragged about wanting to knit only socks in the future... until an intriguing pattern for a cabled cowl came along.....
In the past I have tried to be very hard on myself telling me that I can’t buy any new yarn or start on anything new before I have finished what I have already started. But it never worked! I cheated, using yarn that I had already got telling myself that it was okay. Yep, I am a basketcase!
Nowadays I`ve stopped punishing myself thinking that it will probably turn out okay in the end anyway. I will bury my UFO:s in a big basket and if just enough time passes until I find them again I will look upon them with renewed interest and probably ditch something else to continue with the UFO:s instead. Pretty smart huh?
