Are you a finisher or processing crocheter?

Recommended Posts

I'm enjoing more the finished projects. I have no patience to see how it's going to look like finished and to brag about what I've done. I think that is why I (almost completely) abandoned knitting-it is too slow for me! I need the whole my life just to mastered it, and I don't want to spend ALL my life on it!

How about you?

I am all about the end of a project and not the process! That faster a project, the better it is for me!

I'm the same way. That's why it took me so long (two months) to get a baby blanket done. I kept on putting it down to get some smaller projects done.

I like the faster projects. I have the need for instant gratification. :drool

I'm more about the STARTING than the FINISHING! That's why I have so many WIPs and WIMs and UFOs! :blush It makes my husband crazy... he says, "why don't you FINISH something?" Because I go to Michael's and see row after row of pretty yarn and BOOM, inspiration strikes and I come home with a new project to begin! :hook

I'm more about the process. I love the finished item, but the actual act of finding a pattern, picking the perfect yarn to go with it, and then sitting and crocheting is what I enjoy.

I like the whole process, from beginning to end. However, I have found a couple of projects that really bored me and never got finished...nor will get finished. There's nothing like admiring something I crocheted and being able to say "I made that!", though.

I like both, but enjoy the end product the most. However, I love daydreaming about what new project to start, looking over patterns and picking out yarns.

I love having a finished project. I'm one of those people who like almost instant gratification. But I also enjoy the process. I crochet a lot (well... mostly) on airplanes. I enjoy the rythem my projects have. It gives me something to do and pay attention to when I can't get up and move around. If I can't get the rythem of a pattern or project, forget it, frog time!

I'm like Tiffany and Tracie. I love the entire process.

Same here! Which is probably why I'm making potholders instead of the cashmere sweater that I recently bought the yarn for! :devil

I like both too. But knitting is just way too slow!!! I learned the basics of knitting first and then taught myself to crochet and that is just so much quicker. I like when I finish something and feel like I have accomplished something.

Especially since I have a ton of yarn everywhere!

Both the process and the finished project. I used to be really bad about trying to rush myself to get stuff done and crocheting became more like "work" to me. Now I enjoy the whole thing from finding which pattern I want to work with, which colors to use, and seeing how the project takes form as I go along. I don't pressure myself to crochet a certain amount of time everyday in order to hurry to get the project done. I don't have any deadlines...so there's no need to rush.

I seem to go through cycles of wanting to start a bunch of projects, then wanting to finish things like crazy when it seems like it's been forever since I finished anything. :)

 

Speaking of which, I've been working on nothing but an afghan for a while now, so I think it's about time for the shift to occur again. :lol

I thing that tere are more Finishers in crocheting just because of the nature of the crocheting--it is FASTER! So, it draws more FINISHERS to it!!:P:devil

that depends on how much time I have and how many more ideas come flowing to my head.

sometimes I go on a one at a time mission...and boy do those ever feel good.

but alot of the time I spread the love around, working on several projects (of differnt types) all at the same time, it breaks up boredom strikes too
