Distracted, Disorganized And Finishing Nothing

The feature photo today and the title say everything. Two new projects have me distracted, disorganized and finishing nothing.

About Exactly What Am I Distracted and Disorganized?

Even this blog entry may go all over the place. And not have the cohesive, well-thought-out theme like most of my blog entries.

You know my main project. The Bulky Mulespun Cardigan. Other than responding to Ron’s comment/question about sleeve shaping, I have done nothing since Sunday on that project.

I’m also preparing a workshop for the Men’s Spring Fiber Retreat in May. It’s a workshop on two-handed stranded knitting.

I will be doing a 3-hour workshop to 12 guys in May. There is some preparation they’ll need to do before the retreat, but I realized I needed to knit up a demo piece before I could write up the materials.

And then, Tony asks me to test-crochet his Thermal Stitch Hat. So, of course, I had to start work on that.

More about that on Friday. Suffice it to say, his pattern is really good. It’s got two surprises that I think you’ll be interested in. And honestly, despite having made about 10 similar versions of these hats, I completely buried the headline about its most important aspect!

Get It Together Joe

I was honestly hoping I’d finish the workshop swatch, Tony’s test hat AND do a little work on the Bulky Mulespun Cardigan.

Given how thin I’ve spread myself here, I accomplished none of those.

Check in again on Friday and I’ll hopefully have better news. Or I’m deluding myself again. We’ll see.

  1. Hi Joe👋🏻🙂
    I know exactly what you mean😆 I have a hat on hold ran out of yarn and with all this cold rainy weather I hardly leave the house. And I have a beaded shawl I have on hold but finally bought more orange yarn but haven’t gotten to it yet plus working on another Butterfly shawl for one of my mother’s friend… I usually knit 2-3 hours every morning with my coffee so I’m spending 1 hour on each project until they’re completed. Good Luck on your end my friend☮️💖🧶🥢☕️🍪☕️
