So I seem to have the same problem that you mention in your blog post HERE . Having this long projects that never seem to get finished. And getting bored with the same types of yarn , etc. I have the solution to this problem.
Make a Molly Weasley Sweater. I actually quite fancy this sweater and some day want to make one. The only problem is I need to learn how to knit and crochet.
Ya know thinking about it. I honestly think Mrs. Weasley is my favorite character.. Hmm.. this may bring some new way of looking at the world.. LOL! Sorry writing this blog will probably make me go into a Harry Potter mood for a few weeks. :p
Anywho.... yes solve problem.. yep yep.
Oh and some more that are different.
OOO Wooden buttons.. Like X 10
