I have just started another knitting project. It's another giant undertaking, even bigger than the log-cabin, because I will have to sew pieces together. It's the mitered blanket (although my plans are less ambitious than this example, from the really inspiring Cara, at January One) from Mason-Dixon Knitting.
I don't think I need a psychologist to tell me why I am drawn to projects that will take me a really long time to finish.
I am, after all, an optimist at heart.
