Today I wanted to share something new I've been doing with my knitting. I've found that I always get faster or more motivated as it gets to the end of the month and I want the whole I finished X amount of things this month.
I saw a vlog by Get Lit and Knit on you tube, who host a great podcast but have been vlogging over the summer. She has been doing a knitting journal. So this is like bullet journaling.
So I copied. And here is what mine looks like. I even copied the book which I got from eBay in a pack of 3, they are from America actually.
It's a little book that fits in my notions pouch.
I pulled out all of my scrappy stuff actually for this and then decided I just wanted 'pen doodles' so I went on Pinterest and found some ideas.
I used the inspiration from the vlog for some of the titles and have added a couple of my own.
These are all the WIPs I have some haven't been touched for a while but still.
I added my month goals, which I've found has changed as I've cast things on I wasn't expecting.
And my actual September WIPs so these are the ones I wanted to focus on this month. I've done a little square and colour it in and transfer to the other page when it's done.
This page which isn't shown is my pattern notes, so it I'm doing a textured pattern on a hat I wrote it down so if I can't find the pattern I can still do it.
And a bit of dream knitting. So many lovely patterns I don't want to forget.
A new page I added only last week is weekly goals.
I work Sunday to Sunday and just wanted a little push really. This week we have been on holiday (more on that later) so I set myself some (completely unrealistic) goals for the week and also tried to keep track of what I had knit that day so when I'm feeling I'm achieving nothing at all I can look at that and know I did.
So that's about it really. It's been working really well and I'm enjoying t and referring back to it every couple of days to see where I am.
So in theory I have a hat for Martha to finish today and the body of a cardigan for me, I know I'm hilarious!
In other news, Theo turned 5months this week, and my girl is 3 next week. It's also Yarndale next week! Exciting busy days coming up this week.
Will let u know how I get on with my tasks and share what I finished.
Bye for now.
Ok one little pic xx
