You've been patient and supportive while I've wrestled with a severe case of startitis. From your comments, it's clear many of us confront similar challenges as we struggle to balance life, knitting and active WIPs.
It's far too soon to declare victory, but COAT weather appears to have passed, the snowball strategy seems to be working and progress has been made. Simply writing that sentence brings a significant sense of relief, one that far exceeds the modest results.
Slicing and dicing the planned multi-piece towel and cloth set into segments turned a longer-term project into what will hopefully become a relatively steady stream of small FOs. Three cloths are off the needles, blocked and resting comfortably in waiting mode. To keep the larger project moving forward, I'll start another slice this week.
The purpose of the towel-cloth collection was to create a cheerful set for the guest bath and convert a handful of stashed cotton-blends into useful items. The cloths surfaced on the needles when I was overcome by a desperate desire to work on something (anything) bright with the promise of spring.
That desire continues unabated, so I've retrieved another colorful project from stasis and am close to finishing it. (I'll bore you with specific project details another day.)
At the moment, I'm happy and relieved to report the startitis spell appears to be broken ... for now.
