Another Year of Knitting

Well, it’s been nearly a year since my last post, but I decided to give my knitting blog another chance.

I took a look back at my goals for 2014 and was prety disappointed.

I really didn’t do anything with my TKGA Master Knitting packet except feel really overwhelmed. I wish I’d worked on it while I was unemployed last winter, but since I didn’t, I need to dedicate some time to it. I just don’t know when.

I did knit a new hat each month – in fact, I knit around fifteen new hats last year! Many of them have been given away, but I still have more than half.

It looks like I forgot to keep records, but I think I knit six bear sweaters. They don’t take a long time to knit, but I dislike the extra responsibility of working on them on a schedule. They’re easier to complete in batches, so I’ll just say that I intend to knit some more this year.

Documenting projects is difficult, and I didn’t do a good job of it once I stopped blogging, but it’s really helpful to have information when it’s time to make something similar or knit the same pattern again. I really want to be more organized, and this is an important piece.

I knit ¾ of one sweater instead of two sweaters, but I don’t feel too bad about it. I really want to finish up my Lipstick sweater before spring so I can wear it though. It shouldn’t be too hard now that I just have to work on the rest of the sleeves. I also need to apply a stiff fabric to the inside of the button bands to keep them flat.

Goals for 2015

It’s kind of boring to keep working on the same goals, but I’m hoping to become more productive after getting more organized.

Other than finishing my Lipstick project, I’m starting a KAL for a Hitofude Cardigan

I’ll post some updates as I work on them.
