New swatch for current mystery knit that’s due on March 3
But today, I started thinking about a different kind of multitasking that my teens aren’t very good at. I don’t see any reason to make generational generalizations, as I’m not great at it myself. But my teens seem to work exclusively on whatever has the closest deadline, then the next one, and the next one…when facing multiple tests or back-to-back competitions during the period, they struggle and, like this dreary night, near giving up on trying.
My interpretation of the mystery knit without input from the designer, who’s on vacation
This is something that is both very hard to learn yet important. It’s not multitasking so much as project management/juggling. Understanding how to break a big project into smaller parts and get them done in a reasonable amount of time while still leaving yourself enough leeway for mistakes/life is something that is essential for getting ahead in most tasks. How can I get this through teens’ heads?
Over ten yards of washed fabric to be ironed by 4 pm tomorrow…oh mine!
While trying to meet a deadline, you discover a snag that will hinder the finished product. How do you handle it?
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
