Finishing what I've started

I've been feeling a little overwhelmed by the number of projects that I have on the needles and that I have to finish patterns for. Since November seems to be the month of goals I'm going to try and finish everything that I'm currently working on within the month. DSCF6215.JPG

Firstly I need to finish the Apocalypse Hoodie and the second Arabella.


I spent this morning laying out both patterns, so this shouldn't take too long.


The only changes I've made to the Apocalypse Hoodie are a chunkier I-cord edge and 'proper' thumbs. The simplest way of making the thumbholes is to make buttonholes but I wasn't satisfied with the results so I just knit in some scrap yarn and I'll go back and pick up those stitches and knit a few rounds for the thumbs.

Arabella just needs the neck edging and cap sleeves. More working out than actual knitting.

And then, well I guess I'm going to work on all those things hovering in the sidebar. And yes mum, Posie will be first. Followed by the Coraline, because I promised Neil Gaiman fans I would do it soon, some time ago.

I have so many new ideas, but hopefully they'll serve as motivation to finish what I've started, rather than as distraction.
