I have some craziness going on right now. I heard about a challenge where you are supposed to cast on a new project every day of the month for a whole month. My immediate reaction was "That is the most insane thing I have ever heard in my life". After contemplating the idea of about 24 hours, I had a plan of action. The more I thought about it the more it actually makes sense to me. Half the time the problem with me putting off a project I really want to knit is simply gathering the needles, finding & winding the yarn, finding & printing the pattern and getting it all together in one place. After it is cast on I can just grab something and work on it - no real thought required. I made a list of about 45 things that have been in queue for years - these projects range from baby items to socks to hat to sweaters - all levels of time involved.
There is no universe that I believe I will actually finish any of these projects in one day (or maybe even in the month!), but at the end of the month I can reassess the new projects on the needles and frog the ones that I don't want to continue with. I don't know that I will cast on something new every single day, but for the past 2 days I have & it's fun to think about what to do tomorrow.
Here's what I've done so far:
Fiesta Frock - CO 8/6
Sockhead Hat - CO 8/5 - This is perfect movie / brainless knitting.
What about you? Do you think this is a genius idea or it is just crazypants?
