Good morning, everyone! I love these ideas. One of the things that we all need to keep in mind is that each of us has special skills and knit or crochet or weave at different levels and different speeds and have different time frames in which we knit. We also each have different resources and come from different parts of the world.
For example, I love knitting and while my sister can knit a shawl in one month, it would take me two months (or longer) to complete one. Shespeed knits. I plod along like the turtle. To be honest, I also have knitters' ADHD. I start a wonderful new project . . . oh, look at this beautiful yarn . . . beads, I could do something with . . . maybe a hat. You all get the idea. I also work about ten hours or more a day and, unfortunately, it is not in a knitting shop. However, I do find listening to audio books while knitting brings me much joy and does allow me to attend to the two things I enjoy doing the most at the same time.
In any event, while I would love to knit a shawl for either my prayer group at church or for Alice's Embrace, to make that time commitment is not a realistic goal for me. I will do it, but it will have to be, on my own time. On the other hand, I can manage to rein myself in and can get hats or squares done without too much angst.
What I would like to suggest is that we each PICK a project/organization, make a commitment to complete at least one item for that project and do it. Post what you are doing, why you picked it and the organization and show pics as you go along and of the finished project.
How does that sound to everyone?
