A sick day is a good day to reflect on knitting and organizing and other types of goals. I’ve been in and out of bed all day today, feeling like crap. I’m wheezy, which I hate, and stuffed up, which makes me feel downright panicked at night when I’m trying to sleep.
I think that Socks 2015 is a great idea and I’m going to hold onto it. But I think there also needs to be a big, goal oriented project. I’ve been wanting to knit a sweater desperately, but haven’t found the right one, didn’t have the yarn etc. So I’m going to be getting some yarn soon and I’m thinking that my sweater’s worth of yarn is going to be Knit Picks Shine (not sure what weight yet). I’m thinking something with stripes or colorwork of some sort, bc I love the colorways so much, but am also open to the thought of a one colored sweater. I’d love some ideas from anyone who wants to share. Either worsted or dk are fine for the size.
In order to further facilitate my move to more organized and concise system for projects, I need to purge the WIP basket. It’s name should really be the “Needs to be Frogged” basket if I’m honest. It’s a number of things that I mostly don’t like but haven’t had the heart to admit defeat yet again (if it’s on the needles it’s still a project mentality). Time to let that go, stop feeling like a knitting failure and to finally have a needle reclamation party. I have no clue what needles I have and don’t have b/c of the insane number of WIP’s. Of to rip-it, rip-it, rip-it…good luck to me….LOL
