On Knitting

Finished Wee Austin Hoodie

Even without a calendar and the new year celebration, I can always tell when it is January by my intense need to KNIT ALL THE THINGS, ORGANIZE ALL MY YARN and CLEAR OUT MY RAVELRY QUEUE.

This year I have been stymied by the basement fix-up so I can't organize my yarn just yet but I sense February will bring me a lot of organizing happiness. I have however found time to queue up more patterns to knit and am currently attempting to knit 5 things at once.

It's not going as well as I imagined in my head though. It's hard to knit 5 things at once when you only have two hands and both are needed to knit ONE thing at a time.

So today I'll be taking some time to tidy up my knitting bags and really prioritize my knitting. I have a baby hat that I need to finish for a friend and since it is a quick knit, I might just start with that. Then I'll move on to the hat I started for my husband. It's cold outside and his head would really appreciate the warmth. From there, I'll see what I have squirreled away. The only way to knit all the things is to knit them one at a time. I just need to remember that.

How do you keep control over your knitting desires?
