Debra: Scarf Knitting & Questions

All this knitting is making my hands very sore.   This is at 33" working towards 60".
I feel like the variegated yarn is a lazy way to design an item.  It's really just knitting, at this point.   I am trying to treat knitting as a relaxation hobby.  After a long day of design decision-making, it's nice to just pick up needles and stitch. 
Looking toward 2014:  Do you have an idea of what you would like to do in the Tuesday Stitchers group next year?
What did you like about 2012 vs. 2013?  or 2013 vs. 2012?   
Is everyone staying?

Try adding some cayenne pepper to some hand cream. Rub it in and let it be for about 10-15 minutes. It might help your hands.

I enjoyed 2013 more that 2012. It is so nice to see everyone's different projects and gives me ideas for future projects. I will do my best to be working on my quilt for 2014.

2012 was good. I had a goal to complete one block a month.
2013 is good. I enjoy 'flitting' from project to project.

I am now thinking of ways to combine the good from both years to make 2014 even better.

But , because I may be out of the country for a couple of months next year, plus moving home and living in a caravan while we build a house, I don't want to commit myself to any major projects.

I may have to have another year of flitting between projects.

I think I may go back to a yearlong project. I have a large CQ that is pieced & needs to be finished (9 very large blocks). I don't think I will do intensive hand stitching on each block; but some hand stitching and a lot of embellishing.

I like having a separate project to report here.

I enjoyed both years. Working on 2 projects in 2013 gave me the opportunity to jump from one to the other when I felt tired or didn't know exactly what to do next. Flitting certainly sparked ideas.
I've already signed up for CQJP 2014, so I'll be working on that, as well as my wrapping cloth.( Don't see that being completed anytime soon. yay!) And maybe a few other things............

Make sure to take breaks when knitting to stretch and hydrate. Repetitive stress injuries are nothing to toy with.

I have to think about next year. There are a lot of variables to consider, but I'm always making something, I just don't know weather or not I can commit to a big project.
