Since I finished my Willard pullover on Sunday, I’m thinking about the few scattered projects I have around that need finishing. A sweater; a wide wrap. More importantly, when checking in on what was started and never finished, I’ve been better. In the last couple of years, there’s been less and less on the needles at one time. I’m pleased as punch with this progress in not starting new things as soon as I see them and know I want to knit the pattern.

But, in my inventories last week, I discovered piles and piles of these crocheted circles, which were meant to be for a blanket just like this.

Should I get back to it at some point? Most people I’ve already asked say yes. It seems so far away, so long ago, that I started that project (I actually think it was 2008 or 2009–don’t judge me!). Still, it can be so great. An afghan to have for life. And I’m almost halfway there, right?

What do you think? Get back to it or abandon? Is any project too dead in the water?

  1. Those look really lovely! You should totally get back to this blanket. Even if it takes some more years to complete it 🙂

    1. thank you! you have inspired me to finish. and thanks for stopping by and reading my blog!

  2. I have a part made patchwork quilt from twenty years ago!!

    1. This gives me such hope that all is not lost, even if I let it sit another 5 years. Thank you! and thanks for stopping by my blog!

  3. It would be a shame to leave this half done when you have already put in so much work. I vote for continuing with this as I am sure you will be glad you did once it is finished and like you have already said, an afghan will be with you for life.

    1. thank you for the push to carry on! and thanks for stopping by my blog!
