On the go - a confession

I'm about to admit to a little bit of a weird habit that I have, I hope I'm not alone in the world out there but anyway, deep breath, here goes.....
I love to start new projects. Wait, let me start that again, I LOVE to start new projects before finishing other things!
You see, I always want to be prepared, I just HAVE to be prepared - I mean, what if I want to crochet at midnight but don't want to concentrate on a pattern or what if I want to knit in the car or what if I want a challenge myself - I need to be prepared for all of these scenarios.

So here is what I have 'on the go' at the moment!
Crochet - without conscious thought
Crochet - with a little concentration (have to refer back to the pattern from time to time)
Crochet - following a pattern, so I'd better pay attention
Knitting - without conscious thought, perfect for car travel
Knitting - with a little concentration (have to refer back to the pattern from time to time)
Knitting - following a pattern, so put the baby down & read the pattern properly Rie!
The 'why did I ever think that I could attempt this thing being so tired from having a baby in the house' project.

So, now honestly tell me - do you do this? Do you have something similar going on?  Are you going to admit this to the rest of the world & pop up a confession on your blog? (if you do, remember to leave a link to it in the comments so I can go check it out too).

  1. I always see something that I want to try and like you I have projects for all occasions. I don't want to admit how many projects I have going at once! I don't know how many!

  2. I am so surprised...I thought absolutely everyone did this (at least I hoped that were true)but it makes me feel better about how many times I start new things with so many already cluttering up the room! Yours look very nice, by the way!

  3. I do papercrafting and I have large 12x12 plastic envelopes in a cabinet with started projects... I am giving myself until March 2014 to have them completed if they are not completed they are getting trashed lol.

  4. Oh my friend, I have crocheting projects, a blanket & dish cloth, knitting hats, sewing - well about 5 works in progress. I have a school project all over the coffee table that David and I are working on! Ha ha so no my friend you are not alone! You are just right you creative Queen

  5. I always have at least 2-3 projects on the go and, like you do, each one has it's own grade of do-able, so I can always guarantee, no matter how awale or tired I am, there;s always something to keep my fingers busy :)

  6. Oh jeepers, that's me as well. I have more than a handful on the hooks, and a mental list and a written list and a typed list and I'm going mad.
