I decided yesterday that I need to get more organized. I wasn't sure what I had going on and I was getting a nagging feeling while working on my sweater for the past couple of days that I should actually be advancing other projects as well. So I made a list of all of the projects that I am making or that I intend to make soon. I came up with a list of 15. Seriously. 15.
That might not seem like a lot, but you have to remember: These are knitting projects. Most of them cannot be knocked out in a single day.
Here's a quick overview of some of my ambitions:
A few years back, my grandma gave my mother a knitting bag and some fabric. The idea being that I would take the bag apart and reconstruct it. Last week, I finally got around to taking it apart.
|The handles aren't worn out.|
It is currently sitting in my workspace waiting for me to draft and cut out the pattern in the new fabric. But I kinda figure that if I am going to bother to do one of these, I might as well bother to do three at once. So if I ever get this sorted (and find some handles that I am satisfied with at a decent price), there may be fabulous knitting bags up on an Etsy store.
Next, as a way of using up some of my limited edition colorway yarn, I have decided to crochet a slouch hat out of this Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted.
|A beautiful colorway of which it would be difficult to find any more.|
I got this colorway at the 2013 MN Yarn Shop Hop. But designing with exclusive colorways isn't very nice, so, darn it anyway, I get to make something for myself.
Then there is the design project that I had to rip out and now have to restart. Luckily, it will be on these needles:
|Gotta love #17 and #19 needles.|
So, as much as I enjoy blogging, I'm afraid that I have quite a bit to work on today.
