UNIT VS WHOLE

I like small fast projects just as much as I like long, long projects.

Take for instance my beloved tablecloth, it has been 6 months since I started it and it has become my little pet. When I want to relax I choose little pet. I like the feel of having a big project in my hands. To me it is fun to see it developing into a whole design.

Then some days I like starting and finishing in mere minutes. Like when I decided to do this flower, from start to finish it was 10 minutes, yes, it is not a completed project but it feels good like gee I just finished a little project, it makes me happy!

Do you like doing units and then joining like the granny squares? or working on big projects?

Next I want to decipher this

  2. Your tablecloth is fab. But I think I am still at the absolute beginner stage and like projects that are FAST (daisy chain blogged today made in 2 evenings)

  4. I do both, depending on the mood. Small, instant projects for on-the-go, and the big projects when Im sitting in front of the tv, or in my little quiet corner.

  5. I really enjoyed making a granny square bag, that is when I wasn’t making mistakes. So I think I’d have to say a unit project

  6. I don’t have the patience or time for big projects any more, either. As for making bunches and bunches of motifs and putting them together…that’s more portable, but in the end, it becomes an even bigger project! Lately, I’m doing small toys, and free form. That adorable little flower you stitched…that’s a project! I would work it into my free form.
    @gmaellen…YES! Big chunky yarn and a big chunky hook counts!
    And I agree, that tablecloth is an heirloom in the making!!!

  8. I cannot seem to commit to a ‘big’ project lately. Well, not altogether true, I made a shawl. But that was with big chunky yarn, and a great big hook. Does that count??? 😀
