Optimal number of wips?



What if I only could start a new project after finishing two wips? How long would it take to reduce the number of wips to one? Is it at all possible? Or desirable?

Jeg har maange pågående, de fleste blir ferdige på kort eller lang sikt, andre blir liggende og til slutt til opprekksgarn...
Syns det er optimalt å ha mange jeg, for da er det alltid et eller annet å strikke på i de periodene jeg ikke er kreativ nok til å komme på noe nytt.

Ja, jeg er heller ikke særlig plaga av det. Det hender av og til jeg får et raptus (angstanfall ...), men det varer stort sett bare i et par minutter. Hvem teller? Bortsett fra deg :)

After taking my knitting to a new level this winter (before it was just a sweater at a time) I have several projects. And I love them all, well most of them. Enjoy the stitches without beeing a "good girl". Ut med flink pike syndromet. La det flomme over av prosjekter!!!

I say unless you are on a deadline or knitting is your job, have as many WIP as you want. You will get fewer FO's of course, but that is another questions.

I find that I am happiest with about 6 WIPs but feel it's a very personal decision. Sometimes I waste time because I have failed to write down details and much later pick up a project again, but I think it's worth it for the variety.

My mum is always telling me off for having so many WIPs, but I like to switch between things. Some days you might feel more like colourwork or a different weight, so I say at least 3 WIPs seems sensible! I think I'd draw the line at about 10 though, and attempt to finish 1 or 2 before starting a new one.

I'd still NEVER get done! Ever!

You have some incredibly wonderful work here!
