Lintilla – this week’s Finished Object

Having a number of smaller projects on the go, alongside a couple of bigger projects, seems to be a magic formula. The satisfaction of casting off lifts my spirits and keeps me motivated, giving me renewed determination to keep going on those long-haul challenges.

I’m talking about my knitting here, but I think there’s a lesson I can take away and apply to other areas of my life πŸ˜‰

This week I cast off myΒ Lintilla shawlΒ and it turned out like this …

While I was knitting it (great pattern, by the way), the colourway had felt very autumnal, with its browns and golds …

… until I was given a new perspective by this recent holiday sunset where the colours were a perfect match for my Lintilla shawl …

Now I feel as though I have a summer sunset in yarn! πŸ˜ƒ

Do you like to have several projects on the go? I’d love to hear about what works for you!
