That said, you can sure get more visible progress when your focus and energies aren't widely dispersed.
This past week has seen a fair bit of progress on my 3 (4) Color Cashmere Cowl.
If three colors are good, four are better, amirite? I'm planning to add the Turmeric as the main color block after the skinny teal and grey stripes (er, that's the yellowy-brown for those of you that were raised on the 16 color Crayola box, instead of the mega 120 color set).
Most of my crafting energy (such as it's been) has been spent on the cowl, but I've also finished the heel flap of Carl's second Big Dude sock. No picture, but y'all know what a grey-brown sock with a heel flap looks like.
I've also done two more squares for the Circles to Squares afghan. At this rate I could conceivably finish it ever.
I was laying it out according to the little map in the pattern, trying to get a gauge of what size blanket I am going to end up with. (Pun unintended... but I will admit to leaving it because I thought it was funny. So there.) I have around half the squares completed.
That's really it -- I haven't picked up Nurmilintu, my Hitchhiker, my Halloween socks (Christmas socks at this rate). And we won't speak of the two sweaters I have on the needles at the moment.... Or the shawl. Or the other blanket...
Look, I'm only flirting with the idea of project focus. I don't want to get all crazy.
