In my mind it goes like this: I get my letter summoning me to Fluffwarts School of Knitcraft and Stitchery, pack my bags with plenty of knitting for the long journey on the Fluffwarts Express and arrive for the sorting. The sorting beanie would barely touch my head before shouting 'HOUSE OF BEE!' Seriously, there was no ambiguity here, no procrastinating about my choices, I'm a bee through and through.
Regular readers will know that I have been trying to stop myself from flitting from project to project by limiting myself to one big project and two sock projects at a time. This is working well, I've stuck to it so far and even though I still hover between these projects it means that I do actually finish things from time to time. The main problem with being a bee is that sometimes I'm working on so much concurrently that I rarely get the satisfaction of an FO. Sometimes one project will hold my attention from start to finish and I've noticed that they are small things like hats and gloves so I'm making a conscious effort to knit more of those things because, for me, the thrill of an FO can't be beat.
However, while I have managed to impose some discipline into my knitting, I am still continally tempted by the sweet nectar of (whisper it) other crafts. I can be knitting away and all of a sudden I'll find myself wandering into the dining room and sitting behind the spinning wheel for a bit. From the spinning wheel I can see my handcarders and the big bag of alpaca I've been working on, so I'll make a few rolags before thinking that maybe it's time I finished up sewing that little bag I can see draped over the top of the sewing machine just there...... On and on it goes. So the question is do I try to curb these impulses, maybe get some kind of craft rota going for myself, or do I embrace my bee like nature and just accept that it is who I am?
