Dream it. DO it.
Owning a yarn store, do you know how many times a day, or week I hear people say...
"I just need to work through the yarn I have first..."
"I can't start a new project now, I need to finish the project I'm already working on..."
??? Do you? Do you???
SO many times. My response is usually the same, some polite combo of how we all have a stash of yarn, but every now and then, you need a little inspiration...wink, wink. I want to push [shove] people to start new things because, let's face it, I kinda need to sell yarn. (You know, so that the shelves of yarn you drool over stand a chance at being refilled.) Mostly though, I want to encourage people to listen to their creative energy because it's an awesome way to live life. Sometimes that means setting something down, a horrid book you hate, an epic shawl you want to punch, taxes. Ok, maybe not taxes, but in my opinion it's so invigorating to start something new. If you do that... more often than not, you'll get faster at finishing projects (ironically) because get this... you'll be happier doing them. Duh.
Seriously people. If you're sick of it, put it down. Some day you won't be and you can finish it then. Start something new, especially when you get excited about a yarn, pattern, what have you. That is the bubbling energy moment to listen to. If you ignore those moments too much, your body will stop telling you to get excited and it'll be harder and harder and HARDER to start/finish anything! And we don't want that now, do we??
