Don’t worry be ready

Does anybody else do this?

I’m not one to cast on lots of projects at once. Yarn may be the boss of me but I don’t like it to nag; a hat in the purse and a kids-only-try-this-at-home project is all I want going.

And yet, when something the scope of that afghan is almost done, I scatter those last few days into winding and scouring coned yarn, admiring stuff in my stash for why I bought it in the first place, making no commitments but getting the most likely contenders that needed that bit of prep work in view and drying for the final winding, dreaming away at what they could be as I go and grateful for mill-end stores that help me afford my habit.

Pre-shrunk deep teal baby alpaca/wool and plum purple cashmere are drying as I type.

Thank you everybody for the wonderful words on my Anchorage afghan.

I am one who does have multiple projects going at a time–I’m often fighting startitis, too, and wating to start even more–and pretty much any time I go into my stash looking for something, I am struck by wanting to work with this yarn, and that, and oh, I forgot about this one! Yarns move up the it’s-your-time ladder when I can pair them with a project, though, so that even if I don’t start it at that moment, when I do finish something else, it’s right there, ready.
