I'm really good at starting projects; I'm horrible at finishing them. One of my goals this year is to become a good finisher not just a good starter.
Among the things I want to finish better is my crafting. A year or so ago, I got rid of almost all of my yarn. I only kept projects that I really wanted to finish. The picture above is my new pair of socks. Don't they look great?
Here's the back story:
A couple of years ago, I tried crocheting a sock for Josh. While it looked great, it was awful. Crocheted socks have no stretch, making them very difficult to get on. I moved on and knitted my very first sock for Mika; a pink camo sock. Bored of that, I moved on to a sock for Sam. I gave them each a sock for Christmas with the intention of finishing the other. At the same time, I put yarn in Scott's stocking with the intention of knitting a pair for him. I also bought yarn for my own pair. None of the pairs have never been finished.
It's time for a clean start. I pulled the match for Sam's sock off of my needles. I would never be able to figure out where I was in order to finish it. Besides, both of them have much bigger feet now. Then I dug for a long while and found the fourth needle and started my socks. It's about time I make something for myself...and I plan on finishing both socks this time.
What unfinished project do have laying around that you plan on finishing this year?
