Needlework Tuesday - The start of a new quilt.
I have been knitting away at the scarf and am so close to finishing. The skeins are mere skeletons and keep tangling as I put the yarn. So exciting to be this close to done. Pictures next week.
I wonder if psychologists have ever studied the effect on the brain of starting a new project. I know that I am a serial starter. I love the planning process and the selecting of supplies and making the first blocks/rows/sleeves (what have you), but I am not a finisher. There must be some sweet chemical released in my brain when I start something. I am quite capable of finishing, but I prefer starting. Or it could be possible that I have so many ideas bouncing around in my head, that the only way to get them out or calm them down is to start. Even if scientists have studied this, it probably wouldn't change my behaviour, that's up to me. As soon as I finish that scarf, I am going to pick up that almost completed one sitting by my feet and spend the hour or two and get it done before moving on to something else. Okay, at least I think that's what I am going to do, but don't quote me on it.
Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the progress of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy the encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit their blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the cute little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you.
I hope that you are having fun and making progress on whatever project is dear to your heart at this moment. Mister Linky is waiting below for a link to your needlework post.
