Planning

Springtime makes me want to knit lace. Silk too, but I pretty much always want to knit silk. And wear it. And rub it all over my face. Ahem.

Behold…lace AND silk.

So at the moment I am between projects except for one monstrous, involved upcoming design that I can’t bear to touch at the moment. Lace seems like an obvious choice, right? Except that every time I start looking at lace ideas I suddenly remember that cables are my very favorite thing ever. Also, beads sound really fun all of the sudden.

Beads!

Much like gardening, dreaming up projects is half the fun in knitting, but also a little overwhelming sometimes. It doesn’t help that there’s nothing I actually need at the moment, knitting-wise.

So..what to I want to make? Help me blogosphere!

Back to School

Well, teachers in my district are officially back to work. The kids will follow at the end of the month. Unfortunately, that means a serious blow to my energy levels and knitting time! On the other hand, I am excited as always about the new year and new kids. I’m trying something new and putting “15 minutes of knitting” on my daily to-do list, in the hopes that seeing it there will actually prompt me to do it. It would be nice to have that little bit of visible productivity and stress relief every day! What do you think? How to you make yourself make time when you’re busy?
