Whenever I turn a page in my calendar, I get a little excited at the prospect of new beginnings. I know it's sort of silly ~ after all, new beginnings can begin on any day of the month but somehow, the first day of a new month has that new shiny feel. So, now that a new season is also about to begin, I'm making myself commit to a challenge that I've been thinking about a lot over the last few months. I was so inspired by everyone's #madememay projects, and I desperately wanted to play along but who was I kidding? I haven't created enough in my wardrobe to even post for a week, let alone an entire month!
So instead of pouting and feeling sorry for myself, I've decided to do something about my lack of creative output over the past year. I've started and stopped too many projects since last fall and in going over my stash, I'm having to admit that it's getting me down. Why are there soooo many one skeins in there? Do I seriously not have any sweater's worth of yarn in any of the gazillion bags I seem to be hoarding? This is going to change! I'm going to take some time over the weekend to sort through my patterns and stash and start a brand new queue for my summer knitting which will include warm weather tops and accessories.
I haven't participated in a KAL for a long time, but I'm thinking that jumping in on a couple of knit-alongs this summer may just be what I need to inspire me and to keep me honest and engaged with all you lovely knitters. I haven't hosted a knit-along in while either so stay tuned as I'm scheming of a fun one to announce early next week. In the meantime, if you're enjoying one now that still has a few weeks to go, let me know. I just may join you!
