I've Started So I'll Finish

This post was inspired by The Knitting Assassin's Blog Post. I can so relate to the idea of starting several projects at the same time. I am always impressed with those who stick to one project. 

I find that different situations, (lighting, TV viewing, Knit and natter) and moods (enthused, tired, inspired, determined)  call for different projects.


I was drawn to this Crochet  Molly Doll because I was intrigued by the crochet rib bobble hat. Unfortunately the hat does not fit over the kind of hair I chose to make.
I'll just have to give it to another doll project.

I'm relieved to have completed her, after following the rather unconventially written pattern that, for me, contained a number of frustrating ambiguities and errors. A learning curve...



She's destined for a charity raffle now.
I started a patch pocket cardigan, in November 2016, which I find I cannot do unless I give it my COMPLETE attention...


and I've been designing a Monster Book of Monsters Pyjama Case...


I thought it would be fun to crochet an octopus after seeing the Crocheted Sea Creatures book

and every so often I feel the urge to make a few more twiddle bags for the hospital dementia patients

So do you start lots of projects or are you much more disciplined?
