There is this first sock and I’m about 3 inches or so away from it being finished.
There is this shawl, I need to rip out 7 rows and start the pattern repeat right this time.
There is this cardigan from well over a year ago. Need to finish the one sleeve, knit the other.
There is a half-finished, basic sock that wants to be with its matching partner.
There are these crochet squares that I can sew together.
There’s a little boy’s Peter Pan costume I can finish up (need sleeves, a hat.)
Various other projects (coffee cup cozies, mitts, I can repair the stems of my fabric pumpkins, finish those witch dolls (yeah, she has friends.)
So yell at me and kick my ass into gear. I want to finish up these projects and get them out of my way/work space/coffee table/nightstand/etc. Just being fucking lazy about it.

Or, How Jill Starts a Knitting Project
Step 2: Get really excited.
Step 3: Almost start to cast on before realizing there is another project that still needs to be finished.
Step 4: Fuck it. Begin new project anyway.
Step 5: Forget how to do a long-tail cast-on.
Step 6: Fiddle with sticks.
Step 7: Successfully cast on!
Step 8: Read directions. Pattern calls for twisted German cast on.
Step 9: Rethink all life decisions.
Step 10: Grab a beer, this is going to be a long night.
