This and that

I’m partway finished with half a dozen different things right now. (That’s just my own stuff. It doesn’t include another eight or ten unfinished projects that landed in my possession with Tillie’s stash.) Some are relatively close to completion now, another few are within sight. But a couple are very, very long term projects. Here’s one of them.

There’s more than plenty of this yarn left to make another two dozen squares. It’s a definite stash-buster project. I’ve used up the yellow and two very slightly differing green rolls, plus several different small rolls of variegated, and still there are lots of solid colors of the sparkly variety left.

Eventually all these granny squares will be joined with a more ordinary white and add up to a blanket.

They’re pretty, and I like watching all those little mismatched pieces of yarn turn into perfectly patterned granny squares. I guess my trouble finishing this once and for all is, unlike many of the other projects going on, I have no immediate motivation. It’s kind of obvious that with these colors, it should be a baby blanket. But since the most recent baby I know of is nearly six months old now, well, there’s no need for a shower gift on the horizon. Chances are, this project will be set aside until the next announcement or shower invitation comes my way. If not before then, that will be beginning of 2014, when my church does its annual congregation-wide baby shower.

From what I read on other blogs, I’m guessing this isn’t uncommon. ‘Fess up. What (or how many!) “unfinished until…” projects do you have sitting among your craft supplies?
