Or just how much knitting got knit?
The results are in and here’s how my time was spent…
- Knitting – 13 hours and 12 minutes
- Sleeping ~ 6-1/2 hours (somehow I can’t seem to get it under 6 – knitting CAN be exhausting!)
- Eating ~ 2-1/2 hours
- Taking pictures, posting updates ~ 2-1/2 hours
- Other ~ 1-1/2 hours (you don’t want the details, trust me)
Check out fellow bloggers… At Margareta’s Haus and Not Your Average Zoe – I noticed they were knitting up a storm as well! I love the mini-chevron blanket that Zoe was working on and Margareta definitely had me beat with her production of 2 skirts and the beginnings of a baby sweater!
This month I knit more hours than the total of everything else: 13.2 hours knitting / 13 hours doing other. In March I am going to really try to up the hours of ACTUAL knitting!!! Ideas???
- Knitting something that is to be a surprise? Schedule activities for that person so they won’t be hanging around impeding progress!
- Decide from the beginning that you will be okay with slow-going if you work with teeny tiny needles!
- Be ready to RIP if necessary and don’t waste time wallowing in self-knitty-pity.
Revelations Revealed and Resolutions made…
- The break in my yarn won’t be noticed until I am 3/4 of the way across a really complex cable and lace row. Resolution: Don’t waste time, just “tink” it and get over it.
- I WILL make a grand statement that I will be wearing a finished knitted item by the end of the Marathon JUST BEFORE I do the math and realize I couldn’t possibly finish even if I had 4 hands to knit with and twice as much time. 🙂 Resolution: Don’t whine, just keep knitting until the end, I’ll be much farther along than when I started!
- I WILL find all sorts of reasons to knit for myself rather than someone else. Resolution: Banish the quilt and knit on!
JOIN ME for my next Marathon which will begin Friday, March 8th at 7pm EST and run through 9:32pm on Saturday, March 9th. This will be a ROAD-TRIP marathon for me, so I am excited to see how it will work out!
