W.I.P's Causes and Completion
Seems like I always have a bunch of W.I.P's
(works in progress) sitting around.
Sometimes I have several types of Granny Squares piling up, refusing to count the different styles as additional W.I.P's. I just classify the whole batch as one.
So the box stitch squares, the standard squares, the flower squares and the lace squares do not really have an individual identity until they're incorporated into a working project. Might be cheating a bit but it makes me feel like I am not so far behind as I thought I was.

Some are because I keep a carrier of small projects handy to carry with me when I must spend time sitting, waiting to keep an appointment, traveling, baby sitting etc...........
|this was just too plain|
Some are because, in spite of my addiction, I do occasionally develop burn out on some labor intensive projects, so they get retired until I have an attitude adjustment.

Some, but not very many, are sitting because they are not turning out the way I expected. If I hate it I just can't seem to continue working on it until I find a way to fix it or frog it.

Some are simply because my hands simply cannot keep up with the ideas that dash around in my head each time I pick up a new color or texture of yarn. Seems like I just have to run a few stitches, maybe to just get the feel of it. Sometimes those few stitches drives me through to the end at the total neglect of the current project on hand.
Then, whoops, just created another W.I.P.
How many W.I.P's are lurking in your stash?
