It should be obvious to me that knitting a single project, to the exclusion of all other projects, allows you to finish faster. Funny that I “discovered” this while knitting Birch. I have about ten projects on the go, but for the past few weeks, I’ve been ignoring them all to work on Birch… Birch for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Birch is now off the needles, just in time for me to start the Rowan 38 River stole on September 1st!
Birch still needs to be blocked, but I won’t be able to use the top of the bed to block until Saturday morning. I’m trying to decide if I should go off to Home Depot and find some wire that I can use as make-shift blocking wires, or if I should try the [Harlot’s lace blocking technique](http://www.yarnharlot.ca/blog/archives/2005/08/23/walk_around_the_block.html). There are of course packs of blocking wires that you can buy for $35 CDN but, again, my wallet is currently unavailable.
What’s on deck next? Finish off my KOTR Friday Harbour socks and Knitty’s Trellis baby aran cardigan… those should be quick. Maybe I should think about trimming my “current projects” list so there’s no more than three or four projects at a time… Otherwise, how do you divide your time and attention?
And oh yeah, I’m so not ready for September.
