my project book

Friday, April 08, 2022

I'm a paper and pencil kinda girl. Always have been. Always will be.  (I really miss back to school notebook shopping with my kids!)
The first week after my wrist surgery may have been the roughest.  I missed my mom.  I missed my knitting.  And I missed the connection that knitting has to my mom.  I was all around just sad.  

I decided to get on line and find all sorts of inspiration for when I was able to knit again.  I scoured fashion websites and stores.  Looking for sweater inspiration everywhere.  And then I decided I needed to get on Ravelry and look for similar fashions that caught my attention.  Knowing that before I added anything to my Ravelry queue, I needed to start purging some patterns that I knew I would never make.  Boy did that feel good! (I have a habit of just adding things I like to my queue without actually using it for how it is intended.)
Then, I started taking screenshots, adding 4 to a page and printing them.  I then cut them using my handy dandy paper cutter and glued them into an old journal that was sitting in a pile of empty journals.

I started filling the pages with colorful photos and all of the project details.
Name, yarn weight, yarn suggestion, needle size, yardage and size. 

I have empty pages to fill as I see a pattern I would consider knitting.  
Tada.  All of my inspiration in one place.  When I need a new project, I know just where to look.  

So many projects, so little time.

Happy weekend friends!
