Kate Davies posted a helpful article about getting started with your journal. Yesterday, I made my first marks in it.
Rudimentary, but a start. This is a 2 ounce cake of Better Breakfast DK in Poppyseed from Bare Naked Wools. I want to knit a cowl with it, and it’s my first design of the year. My ideas for this design are still pretty half baked, but getting a sketch done and a gauge swatch is helping me inch forward.
Yesterday felt like I was playing house, only playing knitting designer in my studio, because this was very much an exercise. And that’s why my word for 2019 will be “Practice.”
My next entries in my journal will include a list of knitting projects in my queue, and a completed color chart of the Birds of Blendon hat.
But today, today is for hiking!
