It's official! Today is the kick-off date for a year of projects and I'm excited to begin.
This group has been in the works for the last two months or so and a healthy number of talented and eager knitters and crocheters will be launching their year of projects today, too. So, how should I begin? It's no secret that I'm an avid organizer and love putting things in categories. I was first thinking of putting my projects into themes (accessories, cardis, etc.) but that felt uninspired. Looking at my stash, I thought about categorizing by weight of yarn (bulky, lace, etc.)? Hmm, too nondescript. And then, after going through my queue for the 100th time, I realized that the categories were already in place. I've had many conversations with other knitters about knitting through the seasons and as a New Yorker, seasons are one of my favorite things about living on the east coast.
So, friends, here you have it. My year of projects according to the seasons! I'll be casting on the Make-up Your Mind Tank (designed by the talented and lovely Julie) over the weekend and will post my progress in a couple of days!
