As usual, this quiz is
stolen borrowed from Karen at Nothing But Knit – check out her blog!
- Are you a one project at a time crafter or do you like a variety to suit your mood?
- Do you reward yourself along the way with a new project after reaching a certain goal?
- How do you decide which project to work on? Do you require that you work on a less loved project before you work on the one that is really firing you up?
- How do you know you have too many things going at one time?
- If you had to chose between a project that is nearly done and a new exciting one which would you pick? Are you a process crafter or a project crafter?
My answers are below:
- I always have at least two main projects in the works, and sometimes also have little peripheral projects in strategic locations, like a little hat in my desk drawer at work or in the car.
- I reward myself for making progress if a project is kind of boring or otherwise irritating to make.
- Deciding which project to work on is a process. If a project is close to done, I tend to focus on it so that I can start something new. Other than, it depends on the circumstances. I usually have an easier project and a more complicated one going, so how much attention I will be able to pay is a factor. Also, I like to have projects going on different size needles to give my hands a break. So I need to switch up projects somewhat regularly.
- I know I have too many projects going when I knit and knit and nothing seems to get done, or when I feel overwhelmed.
- I am definitely a project crafter – I want the end result! But I’m a process knitter in that I love learning new things and trying out new materials or tools or techniques. But only when the end result is something I want, so that’s the trick there!
Feel free to answer the questions in the comments or on your own blog – please post a link if you do so we can read your answers. If you aren’t a crafter, also feel free to answer the questions in relation to your own hobby 🙂
