…continuing a tradition I began years ago and re-kindled back in January, I’m sharing the knitting story of my latest journal. This journal began on January 26 and ended today, covering almost five months. In that time I completed 17 projects including six from stash and nine for other people and used 7,439 yards of yarn. I’ve been knitting v e r y s l o w l y these last seven weeks, so those yards were pretty much all worked in about three months…hence a knitting injury!
I am delighted with all the colors this time: blues, pink, green, red, orange (!!) and yellow in addition to the usual browns, grays and creams. And not all of that color was for others – the pink and orange are mine!
June might be the first month since I can remember that I won’t have anything finished. (I can only hope July won’t turn that into a streak!) And I’m taking a different approach to documentation starting next month. The Get To Work Book has numerous project pages and I’m going to use them to document the cast-on and finishing of each project, but there’s no band to tie on the bits of yarn. So – much TBD about future knitting tales.
As I type this, I wonder if maybe this will finally push me to blog about each of my FO’s as they happen… curious – do you?
