I’ve also been pondering what I like vs. what I like to knit vs. what I will actually knit. Some projects are gorgeous and I would love to have them but it doesn’t mean that I am going to put all the work into it or on the other hand not get bored with a zillion stockinette stitches.
So, my new tactic?!?!?!? Is to track my knitting. To log what I’ve worked on where I primarily worked on it etc. That way, hopefully, when picking new projects I’ll be able to have a clearer definition of whether or not it is the right time to start it. So each week I’m going to provide an update. Not just much I got done.....but why.
Now I know that we all have this ability on ravelry but you have to go to each individual project. I would much rather spend the extra time on knitting. I was also thinking about how most podcasters have “On and Off the Needles” so I guess this is somewhat of a blog version.
