Knitting and Crochet Blog Week

Today is the last day for the 2nd Annual Knitting and Crochet Blog week, and I totally missed it. I just found out about it yesterday. So now I am bummed. So I guess that means I will briefly catch up.

Day one was talking about two yarns I used. The two yarn I will talk about is sock yarn and wool. Once I learned how to knit socks I was hooked. Majority of my projects are socks and most of the patterns on my blog are socks I have created. I recently discovered felting, so I would like to see more wool in my stash.

Day 2 was Skill +1up. How have my skilled improved over the last year. I started out as a crocheter many years ago and did little knitting. I found myself doing just as much knitting as I do crocheting.

Day 3 was tidy mind, tidy stitches. How do I organize my stash. My stash is not organized at all, it is all thrown together in my walk in closet.

Day 4 was where are they now. I still have projects in my house that are 10+ years old. These are mainly the afghans. I also have a good stash of socks going. I also have recycled some of the projects that either did not fit or worn out. I also have given away my projects and sold some of my projects.

Day 5 was whatever I wanted to blog about.

Day 6 was something to aspire about. I want to try to do something a little more challenging. I am currently working on knitted entrelac shawl. Turns out that it is not too difficult, I like how the shawl is turning out. I will strive to work on more cables and lace.

Today is my knitting and crochet time. I do my projects while watching tv or listening to music. I usually spend about 1-2 hours on days I work. Obviously I spend more time over the days I do not work.
