October WIPocalypse

October has come and gone, and once more I'm late for the WIPocalypse checkin because I needed the weekend to catch up on all my SALs. I'm all good and ready to go now, though, so no more dilly-dallying!

The question of the month is Do you prefer to stitch on a rotation or one project at a time? Well, I am certainly not a one-at-a-time stitcher, but I'm not a true rotation stitcher, either. I kind of change systems all the time - sometimes I focus on a project for a few days or even weeks, sometimes I change every half hour. This year, with all the challenges I've been taking part in, I've done a lot of jumping around, and it has been fun, but I feel I'm getting tired of it. I think I need some good focusing to actually finish a few things before the year is out, but we'll see how that goes!

I'm nicely caught up with my SALs - both the Mamluk and the Blackwork SAL have been stitched shortly after being released, and both were super quick and fun this month. Just two more parts to go each!

 The temperature SAL has been stitched as well - it's getting cooler, lots of green days now, and I don't expect to see any more yellow. I actually started the last regular round (the outer border is a little special), and I'm starting to make plans for next year's temperature project!

Last but not least, October was on other one-a-day challenge, and I stuck to working on the Mermaid. I still haven't finished all the skin, but I'm making good progress and still hope to see her finished this year, with the help of the aforementioned focusing!

 Oh, and I almost forgot - WIP count time! I finished the pumpkin hat yesterday, which brought me down to 46! Isn't that nice? I'm pretty sure I'll have another start or two this month, but hopefully those will be quickly finished again, so...yeah.

Leonore: I am a one at a time stitcher.
I like all your choices of stitching.
That pumpkin hat is adorable.

Nice work on your WIPs. The Temperature SAL looks great as we reach the final stages of the year.

Oh the pumpkin hat is so cute! I can't believe the temperature SAL is approaching finishing - where has the year gone? x

Thant's great you're still keeping up to date with your SALs, and they're all looking great. Your pumpkin hat is so cute; is it for you? :)
