Lately I've been wrestling with a form of ADD. Not the clinical condition, the other kind. I call it situational ADD.
Perhaps you've experienced it yourself. It's what happens when every aspect of your life is clamoring for attention all at once. It's what happens when you try to simultaneously parse your time and efforts across many people, projects, places and things. It's what happens when you change directions so quickly and so often in a day, it's quite possible you've affected the Earth's rotation. (Whoa. What was that? Did you feel the Earth wobble?)
These are the times we live in.
Apparently there's no cure for situational ADD, although you'll find it reassuring to know scientists are working round the clock searching for one. While these valiant folks pursue their work, I'm implementing a few interim measures.
In knitting world, I've made the tough but necessary decision to stay focused. More or less.
I am committed to and in the process of whittling the stash down to manageable proportions. More or less. Like a hunter on the Serengeti, I've tracked down stalled projects lurking in the shadows and ruthlessly frogged every last one. More or less. Likewise, I've corralled those sneaky skeins that like to wander around the house and returned them to their rightful cupboards. More or less.
I've resisted the urge to cast on multiple projects and have concentrated (more or less) on finishing work in progress. This attempt at self-discipline led to this:
Yes, indeed, the (more or less) neutral version of the Drumlin afghan is in the assembly stage. All five strips have been joined, so I'm gearing up to trim the edges, weave ends and block it.
In other words, the end is in sight. More or less.
