I Cheat On My Knitting

There, I said it, I’m a cheater.

I am unable to be monogamous with my knitting projects. I’ve tried many times to be one of those knitters who finishes one project before moving on to the next, but I can’t do it. I like having several projects on the go at a time to suit different moods.

For example: I’m knitting this great sweater pattern, Beacon Hill by local designer Jane Richmond. It is going so well. The stitch pattern is interesting enough that it’s not boring and it was fast to memorize. The colour of the yarn is fantastic and I’m super happy with it.


BUT on Tuesday, I cast on another project, a pair of hand-knit socks inspired by classic work socks. The pattern is called Climb and it’s also by designer Jane Richmond.


Even though I cheat on my projects, I don’t think I’d want it to be any other way. I’m very happy having multiple things on the go and pulling out whatever suits my mood that day.

Are you able to stick to one project at a time or are you a project cheater like me?

  1. Total philanderer! I also have been unfaithful and have been committing yarn adultery and flirting with multiple projects on the side for years. I love them all, but I admit to ignoring some for weeks, even months at a time. 🙂
