I am a serial starter, are you?
So I was going to publish a blog about things to do with your kids this weekend. With May having not one but two Bank Holidays and a half term. However, then I asked myself what I would be doing this Bank Holiday. Oh and also this blog was meant to be done last week, but I am human and I have been busy. Now, of course I will be spending time with my hubby and my lovely little terrors. However, I also thought I might, I say might as the likelihood is I will just start something else. I might try and finish some projects off.
Its been quite a talking point in the shop recently about how terrible I am at finishing anything. How amazed people are when I actually do finish something. I am known for knitting something and then handing it over to my lovely friend and knitting tutor Yvonne, to sew up.
I have been told I am a serial starter. Are you? Do you start things and then for whatever reason don’t finish them? I have odd socks, half finished scarves, bags with projects in that I have lost the pattern for, unopened, not started projects, yarn that is for a project but I am not sure which one yet.
So I counted!
Yes I know you should just never count your unfinished projects but I did. I waiting till everyone had gone to school, work and childcare and I went back home and I got them all out on the floor. 26 in total. Yes I did say 26. I know its terrible and I know I should finish things but well, what can I say, I get excited when I see new yarn or a new pattern.
On top of my 26 projects I also have a stash of yarn that will probably never get used. So come on lovely people, I cannot be the only one surely? Confess, tell me how many unfinished (WIPS) you have hidden away in various places in your house.
I look forward to seeing pictures on Facebook and Instagram
