Nothing to show for it
I am posting the lovely new quilt that hangs in our town's only farm. My favorite part of a quilt is how black can make it look so beautiful. I had nothing to do with this, other than be an admirer.
I have nothing to show you for my knitting this weekend. I buckled down and finished a sleeve on the Swing coat. I was talking to some other knitters and asked them how they motivate themselves to finish something they've lost interest in.
One said, "Bribe yourself. Promise yourself something when you finish."
Another said, "I don't know I have never completed a full pair of socks."
Still another, "Go somewhere outside your home and you'll focus on it."
Well, I decided the COAT was something I promised myself when I spent all the money on the skeins and skeins of Noro yarn, last July. Reminding myself of the cost of it propelled this Frugal Hungarian on. Hearing the weather is going to get chilly soon, motivated me as well. Here's to finishing the other sleeve by mid-week.
What motivates you to finish? I'd love to know.
Please leave me your email or blog so I can thank you for your comment.
