Weekending finishes

I read about the Gideon method on one of your blogs. In usual fashion, I hoped over to the post and skimmed it. But then I went back and really read it. This was a wagon I needed to ride. So I gathered my unfinished projects – well I gathered 5 of them – and I committed to do some finishing. It has been a wonderful journey. In the last 10 days I have finished two sweaters and a hat. One of these projects has been on the needles for over a year. Last night I picked up my half hap. I was 1/3 of the way through the outer border when I put it down in July, 2018. I expect to be done with it this week. And that will leave one item in my Gideon pile.

Documenting my recent finishes in my knitting notebook

I am thinking about how this method could be used on other unfinished projects because as a multi-craft maker, there are plenty of projects that have been simmering. So I plan to use some of my extra day off to consider applying the Gideon method – to my quilting, my sewing, my paper. I wish I was one of those people who could start and finish things but I am easily distracted. This Gideon method might be just the thing that will help me stay on track.
