Why?

What is it that makes us crafters abandon one project in favor of another? Boredom? Insurmountable problems? Short attention span?

I started my Smaug Shawl many months ago. But it was hard, so I moved on (Also, Christmas presents).

I started my Spruce Socks a few weeks ago. But then I found the Smaug Shawl, and it was magically easier than it used to be.

But now the rows on the Smaug Shawl are really, really long (320 stitches). Getting across a row is an accomplishment, and I’m starting to get a little bored… even though it is silk.

Also the fabulous gals over at Mason Dixon Knitting are hosting a one-sock Knit-a-long. Do I join? Do I stick firmly to my shawl? Do I work on the Spruce socks, or do I dig out some new sock yarn and start a different pair?

Too many choices….

P.S. A friend gave me some new fabric recently. I might have accidentally started cutting out a tank top.

I am a musician, a teacher, and a life-long crafter. I love to read and write, and my favourite book is Jane Eyre.
