A Day for Organizing!
After a snowstorm that delivered much less snow to our area than those South of us, but which nevertheless caused numerous cancellations of our weekend plans, I found myself finishing my latest sock and doing tons of preparation for new projects (winding, logging projects into Ravelry and into my binders, where I keep copious project notes, etc.). This way, when I sit down to watch the Superbowl tomorrow, I'll be ready!
My next set of projects include a baby sweater for the soon-to-be-born little boy of the woman who cuts my daughter's hair (which I'm making in a black Berroco Blackstone Tweed--I love doing baby projects in unconventional colors!); the next in my series of fingerless mitts for my daughter's friends as they get their driver's licenses; and a pair of socks for my husband, as my next-in-queue skein of sock yarn (from two years ago's Rockin Sock Club!) was a colorway that he liked.
Ironically, all of these are really meant to be "secondary" projects, and I hope to cast on my next "main" project--a cute cardigan vest in Tahki Taos--once these are all under way.
Keeping my knitting organized is hard work and time-consuming, but it's well worth it to be able to go back and reference past projects.
