The purpose of this post is to provide some external accountability. Everything will be listed, with a time estimate. Anything other than "epic" (because, really, there are some projects I don't intend to abandon, but know I won't finish this year) will either be finished, or passed on to someone else who will finish and use the item.
I may be using my "secret sock bag" technique of combating decision fatigue, at least for the small projects. That has yet to be determined.
Apologies, my phone takes really uneven pictures. Some are great, some are terrible, and I'm not unpacking the box just to re-photograph right now.
Here we go.
15 minute projects (or: next time I touch this, I'm just getting it done.)
2 hour projects (Or: This can easily get done in one sitting.)
Five hour projects (Or: this can easily get done in one day, but is too much for one sitting.)
This is a really soft, merino tank top that I really love...speckled with moth holes. My first thought was to cover the holes (and secure the loose knitting) with a stitch and a sequin, but sequins aren't really my thing. My second thought was to do visible darning, which...is coming out kind of weird. So now I'm a little stuck: is it even worth finishing? It's so soft, though!
...or, given the whole postapocalyptic thing, maybe DON'T darn?!? Live dangerously!
8 Hour projects (or, more than one day, but the end is in sight)
Red linen gothic fitted dress, hand-stitched. While I was working on this, a felt-tip pen escaped and stained it in a few places. I mostly got it out, but that stopped me working on it, and now this isn't the sort of thing I wear anymore. Needs a new home.
Epic projects (No end in sight!)
decisions are hard, yo.
Not pictured, but also epic:
The beekeeper's quilt, an ongoing modular knit I don't expect to actually finish ever
A quilt made from naturally dyed silk noil, with leafy quilt blocks. I know I need to make a few more blocks, and I had some thoughts on layout, but not necessarily answers.
