Two works in progress

When I worked in education, we looked at why certain teams of people were more successful than others.  One method we used was to look at Belbin's team roles.  The role that always attracted me was the Completer-Finisher, because it is something that I most certainly am not.  In term of my knitting and crochet, I have around eight or so projects that I have started but not yet completed.  There are three different blankets on the go at the moment, together with several items of clothing.  I am trying to get a bit of a grip and finish some before I embark on something else that takes my fancy.

The ones I am concentrating on at present are a Moogly blanket and an aran cardigan.


The Leaping stripes and blocks blanket pattern is one that I have always wanted to make, and I started it after I had a splurge on yarn a few months ago.  I am making it as a lap-sized blanket, and am almost half way through.  It is rather nice on these chillier evenings to be able to drape a blanket over my knees while I work on it.


The other WIP is this aran jumper.  On behalf of Loving Hands, I received a generous donation of yarn last month, and it included around 700 grams of this wonderful 100%wool aran yarn.  I have resisted knitting it up until now, but it is so lovely to handle that I just had to make a start with it.  This is the same pattern that I used for the Aran cardigan of doom in an earlier post, but this time it is an absolute pleasure to knit.

I am not now allowed to start another project until these two are finished.  Remind me of that if I appear to forget, will you please?

  1. Oooo the temptation to start yet another project ... doesn't happen for me. I have to finish something before I start something else. Unless of course I start one sewing project and start one knitting project, then I find I can work at that well enough. Your blanket looks lovely and cozy, and I am in love with cables in anything. What beautiful wool for the cardigan, gorgeous colour :)
