Woo! I’m feeling so good after finishing up all those projects for the Ravellenic games. I think I might keep going! (Plus, I don’t have any real plans for new projects, so I might as well keep finishing things off!)
Last October, I published a pattern, the 15th Street Wrap. (It’s a free pattern, by the way!)It’s a cute (if I say so myself), oversized, cozy shawl/wrap, featuring major color-blocking and acres of seed stitch. It’s a super simple pattern, but the finished product is very satisfying.
I started working on the pattern in May (according to my Ravelry page). But, I got distracted halfway through, and never managed to finish my prototype!
I got through four and a half of the color-blocks, before losing steam. And, since it was such a simple pattern, I didn’t feel the need to really finish up the prototype before I sent the manuscript to the test knitter. Then, when she did such a good job on the sample, I really didn’t feel like I had any reason to keep knitting the shawl.
After all, I had other projects I could have been working on!
But now, buoyed by my Ravellenic Games success, I’m going to do it! I swear! I’m going to finish this shawl if it’s the last thing I do. (Hopefully it won’t be the last thing I do- I’ve got lots of other projects I’d like to work on, too.)
Do you have any projects that have been hibernating a little longer than you’d really like to admit?
I’ve always liked the 15th Street Wrap. It’s a beautiful yet simple accessory that’s practical and easy to grab and carry along as that extra layer that may or may not be needed but let’s take it anyways. 🙂 and that’s high praise from me. 🙂
It’s on my project list and now it’s moved up several notches. 🙂
