I think I've worked out why time seems to be flying. I tend to measure things in terms of finished projects. This month has been a pretty barren month for finished objects and so it feels like time is going quickly and I'm not getting anything completed.
I love casting on for new knitting projects, but too many works-in-progress becomes stressful after a while.
So I'm trying to engineer some small successes - to have some finished objects to stop November speeding away.
So first up, I completed my socks for November.
I used leftovers from my Love of a Pirate shawl I made last month.
I used the good old Vanilla Latte pattern, my "go to" pattern for socks.
Although I've only been knitting socks on a regular basis since earlier this year, I seem to have got into a bit of a rut. I need to move from my "comfort zone" to a "stretch zone" - so maybe for next month's socks I'll be more adventurous!
Despite the fact that I do have several projects on going, I needed something small to do and I haven't done any colourful crochet for a while. With perfect timing, Tatsiana from Lilla Bjorn Crochet released a new pattern yesterday called Frozen Snowflake, so I bought it straight away and reached for my crochet hook.
I used DK weight yarn and a 4mm hook. The finished size is 5 1/4 inches.
A fun pattern to make and it would be lovely as a wall decoration for Christmas. I'll have to make some more and have a play with colours.
So with those small successes under my belt, I'm ready to tackle some of my bigger projects. I hope that you are achieving successes, both small and large, with your projects. Until next time, happy knitting.
