I'm not very good without a deadline. Hence this quilt for my bed that I started years ago is still waiting for the quilting to be finished:
But if I have a deadline, I'm good. Problem is, when I'm making something for myself, there' really isn't a deadline. Here's another work in progress (wip).
I started to knit my sockies on January 1st. I decided I'd set a deadline for myself to get the 1st sock done by the end of the month. And I finished it up this morning!
2nd sock will be done by the end of February...really it will.
