next up.

…I took a photo of my queue two weeks ago. just after I realized it had become a mess that was beyond cleaning up (and just before I pulled that page off the board and put up a blank one).  I wrote down the projects on my needles and those I was committed to doing (shop KAL and a monthly hat for charity). and starting thinking hard about what (else) to knit next. I talked with my sweater and lace students;  chatted a bit with theresa about what KAL we might do next at the shop. and today I finally committed it all to paper.

173:365 next up.
this is a “kind of” new approach for me in that I’m “kind of” planning separate queues for the different kinds of projects I knit. charity hats, sweaters, lace, KALs. you can see I haven’t quite figured out where baby projects fit – I hate to make another queue because I’ve got three babies coming up (which is a very fun thing, but also a good bit of knitting…and I only have so much knitting time). and I haven’t committed to knitting more socks (how convenient if I could finish this pair soon and replace that project with babies!)
so I was feeling pretty good about having all this “kind of” figured out. and feeling very good about not starting anything new til I finish something.
but I wanted to knit something new. swatching isn’t starting. right?!
