Why Wait?

I have no qualms about starting a new knitting project even when there are already several works in progress.  Sometimes when you've had a rough day, there's nothing like casting on a new project as a pick-me-up.  If the yarn is in stash, the cost is low.  It's better than destructive, unhealthy stress coping behaviors.

I had some freshly dyed yarn designated for a new project and had told myself I would cast on this coming weekend.  I'm not sure why I set that timeline for myself - maybe holding onto hope that I would finish some other project in the interim.  I do have several things on the needles, and it would be nice to finish a couple of them.  It's good to set goals.  In a roundabout way I was setting one for myself by holding off on the new project for a few days.

Yesterday I needed a little boost and decided there was no point in waiting.  What difference would a few days make?  Life is short.

Fresh yarn, new project.  Just what I needed.
