A bit of this and a bit of that

I have fully come to terms with the fact I will never be a one project at a time person. I have tried. But my head would explode if I had to keep all of my ideas in there at once. It is better to let them out. So I have cast on some socks, a small cardigan. There are half made soft toys everywhere and I have started cutting out two more quilts.
I have finished one thing. There is one book less on the bedside table. A Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver. One of those books I didn't want to finish. I loved the characters and their journeys. I highly recommend it.

I find I get more things finished the more projects I have on the go. Sounds silly but works for me!

I loved this book too, she is a great writer.
Lots of things on the boil is a good way to be!
Love the green :D

I love the green socks, beautiful color. Your little cardigan looks lovely too, what pattern are you knitting. I find I always have heaps of projects on the go. Some I put away half finished and then a few months down the track I pull them and finish them in next to no time at all.

Well it must work for you - you accomplish a lot of lovely things.

Same. You do what you have to do to avoid head explosions. My girl (picklesticks) often recommends starting a new knitting project as an anti-dote to the blues. It really works!

I'm not a one at a time gal either. Which frustrates the crap out of Sondra :)

I'm in the same boat when it comes to having multiple projects on the go.
I love that green yarn - such a vibrant shade. Is it one of yours?
