Ok, so I'm sure I'm not the only one that has a big long to-do list of crochet projects.  Well, I've got a few questions for those like me.
1. When do you find the time to make all your projects?
2. How do fund your projects?
3. What do you do with them once they're finished?  Especially if they aren't "purposed" items like hats, scarves, and purses?
Thanks for answering!

1. I work nights. I can't go to sleep when I get home at midnight. So, unless I want to stay up until 5 a.m., I crochet for a couple of hours to relax.
2. A strict diet: One project purchase per paycheck.
3. Save them to give as gifts or to sell at garage sales. Or just randomly give them away.

I seem to have unconsciously developed a sort of philosophy like, if I have an infinite number of projects stretched out ahead for me, then I won't ever die.

1. lunch breaks, bus rides, and whenever I have a few minutes. I tend to do mostly portable projects, so I always have something stuffed in my backpack.  If I know I'm going to have at least fifteen minutes idle time, out comes the project.

2. I generally only buy El-Cheapo acrylic yarn or really basic cotton when I'm just crocheting for the hell of it.  Good yarn is for projects that actually have a purpose. Oddly, this is a tiny minority of the projects that I do.

3. Wait, you mean some people FINISH their projects? No way!


Well, sometimes I do too, just not as often as I ought to. (Always seems to be something new that I want to do first).  But when I finish things, there's usually someone who wants them, so I've never had a problem.
