In December 2019, I decided on my knitting plan for 2020. In short, I would make 6 pairs of socks and 6 sweaters. Then, like a show-offy batter in baseball pointing to the stand he is going to hit the ball over, I actually named specific socks and sweaters I was going to make.
So how has that worked out for me so far? Eh – partial success. I will very likely get to 6 pairs of socks this year, and 2 of the 6 pairs are ones I said I was going to knit. I’ve got 5 pairs done and the 6th is close to done.
I’ve got 4 sweaters done and a 5th in progress. It’s just possible I will be able to sneak in a 6th one, but the odds are not great. Of these, 4 are ones I said I was going to do.
In addition to spelling out my mad plan, I also stated, in spite of all logic and sense, “The 2020 motto is ‘If it isn’t in the bin, it’s a distraction!’ ”
Hahahahahahahahahaha! I actually did hold out until late February until I did something that wasn’t in the bin. Since that point though, it’s been non-stop. 2 outfits for Dolores (which I can’t grudge), 2 pairs of slipper, 1 pair of baby booties, 2 shawls, 3 cowls, and 2 pairs of handwarmers. And counting, because there’s more lined up and ready to go.
How about you? Do you plan out your crafts, or just let it roll. And if you did have a plan for this year, how is it going?
