Lillybee, I do that intentionally too. It's because I have a bad habit of not finishing things in general if I don't get them done before I start another project. So, when I started knitting I made a strong effort to mostly try to finish an item before I moved on to the next thing. It's helped that I've been knitting small things so far that only take me a couple of days to finish...... Unless I make a mistake, then I have to start something else until I can get together with my cousin so she can fix it and get me going again. Laughing

I agree but we are all different, some people like lots of variety. I sometimes cast on an easy item if I am doing something a bit more complex. It lets me have a break or knit and watch TV. Usually I will finish one thing first though

I like that pattern, Nony. I don't see why it wouldn't count.

Kathryn, how about a summer tank-top KAL for May or June?

I think I might do the shawl KAL. Maybe. Got to get some knitting that has to happen out of the way. Found a lovely pattern that I want to do. We shall see if it happens.

Or this
