I've neglected this blog last year, but I have resolved that for 2014 I will try to post items more frequently. So, I will start that commitment today.
I felt like I didn't accomplish much last year and wanted to strive to do better this year. To stay more focused on the things that matter to me, I set up a Top Goals spreadsheet and purchased a monarch size Franklin Planner. I didn't start populating the planner until yesterday. I am now in a better place this evening, which is a good feeling. I did my weekly planning today, set up my project bags for January 2014 HCKCHC in Ravelry and made good progress on David's first socks for 2014 .
There is a Slytherin Sock Syndicate which mentioned a great way to achieve more sock knitting by setting up your 2014 sock project bags at the beginning of the new year. A new project bag is pulled out once you have finished your pair latest sock project. Yarn Harlot Stash Sock Club thought this up, so I give credit, where credit is due.
First I made up 14 project bags along with determining what sock pattern I would use for each selected yarn. Then I had a little help when I was trying to set them up to photograph.
I want do a bit more reading and to tackle that goal I started a new book today by Stephen King - 11.23.63. I haven't gotten into it much yet, but I am looking forward to some good book time this evening.
I would love to chitter a bit more, but I want finish my first pair of socks for 2014 which are to go to hubby! More on that later.
