Diverting my attention

All these half-finished projects are starting to bother my conscience. I wonder if they're lonely. I wonder if they feel sad and abandoned. I wonder if those phantom cries that wake me up in the middle of the night come from my knitting basket. I don't want my yarn to feel unloved. So yesterday I ignored all my new beautiful new yarns, despite the fact that they were calling my name all day long. I turned my attention to a long ignored project that was mere inches from completion. In just an hour it was knit, seamed, and ends were woven in. It is now blocking.

Finished objects coming soon.

Although I think my new alpaca is lonely. And my blue yarn is feeling unloved.

Can't wait to see that pretty blue whatever-it-is you've got blocking there. Good job on finished a UFO! Now you can answer the call of new yarn without guilt!

Congrats on finishing a UFO!! Such willpower. I am in awe. Can you share some of that? ;)

Congrats on finishing that pretty blue little number! Can't wait to see what it is. But what's with all your knitting accessories/yarn and their co-dependent, dysfunctional streak in feeling unloved? ;-)

Could that be a corset blocking? Oh you are good!!
