Shh: in the middle of finish-itis

This year, I’ve been trying to clear off personal projects (unfinished things that started out fun, but were put the wayside by my love of books).

Note to self — remember how much you love colorwork? Next time select something with an a rhythmic pattern. It’s hard to concentrate on something like Kate Gilbert’s Bird in Hand when I want to finish The House I Loved by Tatiana Rosnay (more on that later). I think I started this back in 2012 (I just checked Ravelry — more like 2009. This project has been marinating!). I’m still in the middle of the first mitten. Next time, something with a bit of colorwork then miles of stockinette might go faster. Still, I want these mittens, and hope to get started on the left one soon. If Wilkie Collins doesn’t interfere. So, what knitting projects do you select for knitting and reading? Might as well work with my strengths.

    It is difficult to strike a balance. I love the mitten – take this as encouragement to finish – both.

    Will keep knitting, then… and reading when my hands are too tense for tension. 🙂
