    Default How many projects

    ... do you work on at once? I've currently got 3 things cast on for knitting- a cardigan (finished the back piece, now working on the front left), the second of a pair of mittens (half through- should finish them tonight or tomorrow) and I just cast on my first sock! I'm so excited about the sock since that's the thing I really really want to make!

    I've also got a few sewing projects going that are halted until I finish Reed's quilt.

    My mom is an amazing quilter and she very strictly only works on one project at a time. I have tried to do that, but I find that there's always some place in the process of a project that I need a bit of a break and then when I come back to it that hard spot seems easier for some reason.

    What about you? How many things do you work on at once?

    It's my personal rule. After seeing how it can get out of hand with my mom, who usually has 8-10 things going on at once, and who rarely finishes in a timely manner, I decided on only having 2. It saves on needles and I'm more likely to slog through a tough spot if I know I can't just cast on for something new.

    Actively, i work on two projects tops, but a lot of the times its only one. The only time it gets to be two is if either

    a)I have something that pops up that needs to be done in a timely fashion

    or

    b)The one project I have going is complex and requires a lot of concentration and I want something more mindless to work on when I'm feeling stupid
