Putting the bad knitting away always helps. After I decided to put the offending piece at the bottom of my knitting basket I felt much better. It did take a little while before I settled on what to knit next but then I remembered the Silk Tank Top that I started in January. Working on only one thing really pays off.
One back finished and one front cast on:
Keeping focused on one thing has also been good in other ways. I’ve always admired shawls worked from the top down like Icarus or Hyrna. I could always buy these patterns but it just would be more fun to design my own. The only problem is that getting a good idea is not easy, especially not when you have a lot of other things cluttering your brain. Limiting myself to working on only thing has freed something and I’ve begun to swatch.
