Have you ever started a project and you don't know why? That's pretty much the place I am in right now in making squares for the Penguin Cuddle Quilt. Now don't get me wrong, I've had my eye on this pattern for awhile but logically it just doesn't make much sense to get started on this at the moment.
First of all, I don't even have enough yarn to complete it. And since our move date is still up in the air I can't even place a yarn order at Joanns because it usually takes a month to get here. Although this whole mess with our moving orders has been an over 3 month process to get fixed, who knows I could probably order yarn and it would still get here before we leave. And of course there is still the possibility of us having to live here for another year. But without knowing anything for sure, it still means no yarn orders for now.
Second, I don't even have anyone to give the afghan to when I finish it. I would have to add some more rows and columns so it would be large enough to donate to Bridge and Beyond.
So even with knowing I won't be able to complete this anytime soon and I still need to figure out what to do with it when it is completed, I'm still going to go ahead and make as many squares as I can. The whole moving issue coupled with the stress my husband is under at work has really taken a toll. Like I have said before sometimes I need to do a little mindless crochet to keep me sane.
