The Stash (Part 3 of 3)

Continuing this backwards account of this ‘outside’ process: plan, make, finish, wear, this takes us to the stash. I wrote these posts in this order as truly, this is how I think to begin any new project. Backwards. 100% inspiration to knit any garment, for me, comes from the fashion statement it creates in the end.

Organization of the WIPs (Part 2 of 3)

Recently, when answering questions about knitting, I reflected upon my teaching.  I found myself comparing what I call the outside process of knitting:  plan, make, finish, wear to the process of planning a unit.  “What is it I want my students to know and be able to do at the end of the unit?” I would ask myself as a teacher.  “What is it I want to wear to the special event?” I ask myself as a knitter.  I see similarity in thinking about the end first, then planning accordingly.

What’s OUT and what’s IN regarding FO Storage (Part 1 of 3)

In reviewing  my last post called Keeping Site for Knitwear where I discuss my thoughts for storing hand knits or finished objects (FOs), I still feel very much the same way today as then regarding storage of this collection.  In reality however, I was not following one of my criteria, EASY ACCESS, I set for myself (which is odd) and that is why I had to revisit this in my life and why I am here talking about it again with you.  And, the importance of easy access is because this is one knitter who really DOES wear her hand knits.

A few updates … “Imbalance 2” has turned into “Delight” regarding blog theme.  And, who knows what else I might find between this post and the next?  If you’re looking for familiarity when stopping by to visit this blog, I guess the only solace I have for you is that the content and message will be a constant.
