2020-The Year of No SEX*

Feeling sort of ambivalent about joining the 2020 Ravelry Project Challenge as I’m such a sloooow knitter and when the weather turns hot, which it is most of the year here, that’s when all thoughts of knitting stops. So, if that means one smallish project per cold or cool month, then that’s maybe 5-6 projects a year. Almost doable. The 2020 challenge is up (as of writing this post), here’s some information from previous years about participating in the challenge.

Looking at my WPcom Reader, I’ve seen knitters post a number of specific projects for their 2020 Ravelry Challenge and I think my way forward is having one colorwork project to carry me through the year (maybe the Winter Cones vest, finally!), one lace project and then several smaller projects along the way. At the moment, that feel attainable. Maybe I’ll surprise myself!

My first FO of 2020 ended up being my last FO for 2019. I discovered this half-done, half-mitt project while looking for my #7 dpns. Yep, that is the same #34 Wristlet pattern that I wrote about earlier. The universe is funny that way.

And 2020 will be the year of no SEX*. Besides getting a grip and being honest with myself about which yarns I will never knit and get those up on my Destash page, gift or donate them (remember, you heard it here first), I need to focus on working only from my current yarn stash. It really has not changed much since being photographed for Knitty’s “Flash Your Stash” in 2005. Yikes! (The full embarrassment of riches is posted on my About page.)flashyourstash

*In case you’ve forgotten what that acronym means, it means Stash Enhancement eXcursions.
