At the start of the year many of you told us that your resolution was to finish off your unfinished projects – and some of you told us that you had several knitting or crochet works in progress (Wips) that you hadn’t got round to finishing yet.
So we have been collecting some top tips to help you reduce your “Wip pile”.
- Put a nearly finished project near the chair you have your morning cuppa in or watch TV from – and aim to knit a couple of rows every day. It will be finished before you know it.
- If you have one to three projects on the go, aim to finish one completely before casting anything on. Four to six, aim to finish two. More than six? Aim for three & think about all the needles, hooks & project bags you will free up.
- Sign up for an online challenge. You often find these on blogs or in Ravelry groups, where the idea is to support each other in finishing one or more project by a certain date or during a particular event such as the Olympics or an big football tournament.
- If a project isn’t working don’t let it haunt you or give you project guilt. Rip it out and use the yarn for a project that will make you happy or work on something different that you do enjoy (once the ripping out has been done).
- Often the problem is the project is finished bar some seaming or a few buttons. Look out for one of our #stitchupSunday events on Facebook or Twitter and sew along with us. Or declare your own Stitch Up day and stick with it.
