My last three projects have taken a lot of time and energy to complete, so I haven't been feeling inspired to start anything new lately. Which is fine since I have way too many WIPs. Some are snoozing, some are actually in work and some barely count as being started. Regardless, I would like to have all of them completed or dispatched before I dive into the host of interesting items on my To Do List.
A quick look at my Ravelry page doesn't show much in work, but the reality is it's way more than the 2-3 projects that I feel most comfortable with.
Spinning Black Huacaya Batts of Wonder
My feet get too cold to spend much time spinning in the winter. Yes, I suppose I should knit myself a pair of socks or slippers, but I haven't yet. So I have only spent a few minutes spinning here and there over the last several months. Which has me about half-way complete with the Black Huacaya Batts of Wonder.
Technically it's not winter anymore, but we have had a mostly cold and rainy spring. I finally gave up and turned the heat back on yesterday. So I suspect I won't be spinning much for a while.
Spin Tibetan Mastiff
When last I wrote about the TM fur, I had just finished carding it. I am looking forward to spinning it. I suppose this is why spinners have many wheels... I'm afraid though. If I had more than one wheel, I would definitely have too many spinning projects in process. It's a good thing our Breeder isn't in a hurry for this yarn.
Recycled Wool Nightcap
I have been quietly working on this hat when I need a little mindless activity. I still have a ways to go and will have a zillion ends to weave in when I get there.
The Simple Scarf
I'm using this yarn to teach the ladies at the office how to knit. I didn't really intend to make a scarf, but I like this yarn and think a simple red scarf is good to have around. Of course, it's been ripped out and re-knitted several times, so I'm not entirely sure this scarf will actually happen.
A Baling Twine Doormat
I haven't posted about this project yet. Mostly because the photos look like poo but also because I haven't made much progress. I think I need a larger hook and the puppies have decided it's super fun to play with, so I may let it go and start again.
I haven't posted about this project either. It was started as something to do mindlessly, but the Recycled Wool Nightcap has taken over that role. I'm not entirely in love with it. I may frog this one but I don't have any other plans for the yarn, so languish it does.
The Twitter Knit Along Shawl
I shelved this project in March 2010, that's more than a year ago. I'm not really a shawl kind of person, but I joined in because of the skills this project could teach. I reached an extreme level of frustration with 3 sessions of ripping back, culminating with the near-miss of a complete rip out. I think with the extra year of experience I now have, I should be successful with the lace portion. I do have a couple of recipients in mind, so I would like to finish it. But it has become my Everest, so I need to make sure I am in the right frame of mind before I pick this one up again.
So this is my way too long list of WIPs. I can't really call it the result of Fiber ADD, because I am only actively working on a couple of items. But I don't like having such a large list of incomplete projects. Especially since I have several other projects in progress. But this is Fiber Arts Friday, not Day Job Friday, nor Gardening Friday, nor Alpaca Farm Infrastructure Friday, nor Home Improvement Friday, nor... so be sure to head over to Wisdom Begins in Wonder to see what the others have been up to.
