Like so many others, I was led down the Honey Cowl path by those Mason-Dixon pushers knitters. Not that I’m complaining. In fact, it was a great mindless/mindful knit and I suspect another one will grace my needles soon.
Back around second or third grade — after the standard adoration of pink — I picked blue as my favorite color. And loyal I was to all things blue for nearly 15 years. By the time I’d entered my 30s, though, green had overtaken it.
The other day I looked down at my WIPs and realized another change might be underway.
I try to hold myself to no more than three active projects at any one time. It’s an arbitrary number for sure, but one that keeps me from feeling like nothing will ever get done. Anyone else have a WIP limit for themselves? If so, what is your magic number?
You could say I’m emboldened for having forged ahead with the Marin — and for actually meeting my 2012 knitting goals: three new items/techniques (baby booties, short rows, Fair Isle) and “12 in 2012.” Forgive me the following Ravelry documentation; it’s just that a dozen shawls seemed so unlikely a few months back in the frenzy of the move and new job.
What are my 2013 knitting goals? More venturing into that territory of new items and techniques. This year I’m tackling socks, mittens, and Fair Isle that’s more than rudimentary. And since I acquired quite a bit of lovely yarn last year, including holiday gifts, I’m going to dive into my stash with glee. (Goal is to try to use up three stash yarns for each new purchase.)
