What’s your crazy? This question is starting to pop up everywhere in the knitting community, all spawning from a KAL (Knit-along) put on by The Fat Squirrel Speaks and the Stockinette Zombies podcasts. Some people are responding by casting on every project in sight, others are trying their hand at monogamous knitting. Though I clearly have a few crafting crazies at the moment (including a project that is slowly turning into a decoration doom), my current crazy is continuing to add more projects to my plate for the holidays. Beyond that, I’m even turning one project idea into something more complicated: cowls are becoming shawls, a simple hat is becoming a hat, mitten and scarf set…. I just cannot seem to stop planning more and more projects.
It would be one thing if I was at least working in the logical order of completing my immediate family’s presents first… but no. My daughter’s teacher’s present is done though. So are a couple gifts for my coworkers. Most of my works-in-progress are for my family, and a couple are close to completion… of course I’m not working on them now. These will probably be the gifts keeping me up all Christmas Eve to sew on the last button and weave in all the ends… maybe even knit the last remaining stitches. Though I know I have a list prioritizing all of the projects left to knit… clearly I need to actually read the list… or hire someone to beat me over the head before I start another project that is not for my family. Both are valid ideas.
