One Too Many?

Despite trying to limit myself to only having one crochet project on the go at once, and only starting a new project after I’ve finished a project.

I’ve broken this rule.


Not only have I begun a new crochet project without finished the first project, I have actually got three crochet projects on the go at once!


What can I say? I couldn’t help starting a new project, with a new stitch and pattern to learn. And to get to use new yarn.

The excitement of starting a new project called to me and I gave in. It’s a little addiction. It also keeps my mind active by learning new skills and trying a new pattern. I feel inspired which crosses over into other parts of my life.

I have a choice when I sit down to crochet on what project I work on, meaning I’m more in the creative flow rather than doing what I think I should do.

This is more relaxing and fun. A healthier way to approach my creative projects. The downside is that I can feel a little overwhelmed and a bit frustrated that I’m not finishing any projects. But, the positive side outweighs all of this. And that can only be a good thing.

Also, when completing creative projects it really is about the journey. The journey is personal. For me, my journey is about having more than one project on the go at once, this is my joy and when I’m thriving. So, I embrace it.

What is your approach like to your creative projects? Please share below in the comments.

  1. I admire people who work with their hands like crocheting, quilting, drawing, woodworking, mechanics, playing a musical instrument. It must help some way in their writing. I’ve tried some of these activities — my father was a foreman at Holdens and wanted me to work there but I could never muster the interest. Danny Kaye once said and I don’t know how true this is, “You always become what you were meant to be”

    1. Oh I love that quote by Danny Kaye.
      Hmmm I think there’s truth in it. I’ve always loved writing, but I went and did other things. I’ve come back to writing. Guess you do what interested you?
