For the last couple days I've been focused on one and only one knitting project. I've made up my mind. I'm not stopping until I finish this shawl.
I'm in the homestretch, but my attention has started to wander. I've calculated when this shawl is going to be off the needles and on the blocking wires. And I've calculated when I'll be free to cast on a new project.
My affection for the project under construction hasn't diminished. The color changes and emerging lace pattern have been entertaining. I've thoroughly enjoyed it.
I become attached to some projects and don't want them to end.
But inevitably they do, and it's time to start anew.
