An In-Between Project

My Christmas knitting crochet is all done. And I now once again find myself between projects. Sigh.

Luckily, I have a project that I started back in June. It's been sitting in my project box since I set it down sometime in July to start on the octopus hats. I pulled it out again on Saturday. 

I doubt I'll work on this long before a new bright, shiny project comes along tempting me to work on it right away. I'm already eyeing a star ornament project (Ravelry link), and I'm contemplating making myself a new purse. But until then, I have something to keep my hands busy. 

What's keeping your hands busy these days?

  2. Great progress on Calash. Is it cold enought to wear it as a hood? Cute Starry Light stars too, future new project!

  3. I could never put down a project before it's finished. I have to keep focused!

  5. I hear you about bright shiny new projects. I'm so easily distracted. But hanks for sending me down a rabbit hole of sorts. I checked out that star ornament and ended up having to reset my Ravelry password and adding a couple of things to my profile. I did really need to reset the password. I had to hold myself back from looking for patterns. What I can't seem to find now is my Raveler # (no where on my profile)although I'll no doubt ever have anything to post about. I did join in 2012 - yikes almost 10 years ago!

    1. I find I only look for patterns when I want to make something. I guess I'm a project knitter (as opposed to a process knitter).

  6. Congratulations on getting the octopus hats done! What's keeping my hands busy? I have a bunch of unfinished things, of all sorts, but I can't say they're keeping me busy, as I'm not terribly motivated!

    1. I know that feeling. I'm rather glad I don't have any pressing projects at the moment. I have the headspace to plan right now.

  8. I've been spending the past week making up extra animal hats with extra yarn. I'm at the bit where I'm sewing everything together.

    1. That's either the best part or the worst, depending.

  9. Most of my time has been spent either cooking/baking or playing with cats. :D Best wishes on finding new and finishing old projects.

    1. I haven't touched this all week. Sigh. Baking sounds like fun. Especially the finished product :)

  10. Starting to read the backlog of posts I am behind in - I promise I won't comment on all of them!

    I have a couple of new projects I got recently so I'm really hoping to find the time to work on them soon. I guess you'll know from my blog!
