I'm crocheting a poncho. I stumbled across a charity that wants them and I couldn't resist. I really enjoyed making Sienna's and they are so easy to do but one poncho is more than enough for a little girl who has the wardrobe of a super model.
Actually, I'm not sure I should be making this as I already have some projects on the go which I could be getting on with, but today I want to make ponchos and have even chosen the colours for the next one. I seem to have fallen into a habit of having several things on the go at once. I was never like this in my younger days. Back then, I would start something and finish it before moving on to something else, but these days, I seem to dip in and out of things on a daily basis.
In a couple of weeks having so many unfinished things will start to get on my nerves and I will make a concerted effort to finish everything, parcel it up and send it of to the relevant people.
Then I will tell myself that's it for a while. I will be fed up of seeing balls of wool on the coffee table and fabric stacked on the shelf. I will be glad I don't have to look for my crochet hook or the sewing needle (both are always found in between the sofa cushions), and I will be determined that no more projects will be started for a good few weeks, instead my energies will be focused on the house and the garden.
Of course, the house and garden don't stand a chance when competing with wool and fabric so it won't be long before I'm picking up my crochet hook, knitting needles or getting the sewing machine out again. And the cycle will re-start. Variety is the spice of life as they say.
Are you a starter and finisher or do you have several things on the go at once?
