There really isn’t any limit, is there? Knitters seem to fall into two camps, those who have numerous things going at once, and those that just work on a few things at a time. I know knitters who have thirty or forty projects going at once, and I know a very few that only do one at a time, finishing it before starting something new. There are even a few rare ones who only BUY YARN for one project at a time. What’s up with that? What if you finished and the stores were closed? That’s the stuff of nightmares right there.
I sort of fall in between. I like to have a simple sock going, maybe a sweater, a lace project, and at least one simple thing that’s not a sock. But I’m not opposed to having more than one of each of those categories if I’m getting bored.
Here’s the new thing. This is in the category of “simple but not a sock”.
It’s another Hitchhiker, one of the most popular patterns out there. There are nearly 30,000 projects listed for this on Ravelry. The yarn is from deep stash, a skein of Wollmeise Pure that I bought before Wollmeise was as popular as it is now. The yardage with these skeins is huge, 525 meters, so it’s great for a little “shawlette”.
And yes, I should be working on that CME and not starting new knitting projects. I can only answer so many multiple choice questions before I’m ready to stab myself to death with my knitting needles.
