Focus On Your Craft One Time

Something amazing happened this weekend. I committed myself to one project. Generally I knit a few hours on one project, get bored and then turn my attention to another project. It's a bad habit, but it's the way I am. I've accepted this. Yesterday I turned over a new leaf. It won't last long but I'm taking advantage of the temporary change in my ways. It's allowed me to get a lot done on Alisa. I'm quite pleased with this knit. I had a setback in the beginning because I cast on for the small and it was quickly apparent it would be far too big. I begrudgingly frogged it and cast on for the x-small. Now I'm worried it's going to be too small. There's no way I'm frogging it again so I'm just going to cross my fingers that it fits. Or hope that I lose 5 pounds and then it'll fit regardless of whether I've knit a size that's slightly too small.

It's looking great so far! And with your newfound project fidelity, I'm sure you'll get through it quickly.

I'm very slowly learning to be monogamous with my knitting too. It can be really rewarding, but there are definitely times where your attention wanders :) I'm glad it worked out for you with Alisa though!
