2020 Working With What You Have Challenge

Post by Jackielou »

All, (well most of us) have craft things, items we are going to recycle, or other items we are "planning" to use but just have not got around to doing so. Or projects just started and left lying there. I know I do.

This challenge is to get us all moving forward on that, kind of an online unfinished project get together. Perhaps we can all give each other the extra push to get things done.

Today I will begin by decluttering and gathering together the knitting patterns I have laid aside to work on and the yarn. I am going to kit them up into bags.

Projects that are half completed or just need a few stitches or rows knitted, will be brought out and placed by my comfy chair (more inclined to work on them if they are right in my face).

I so appreciate this thread, Jackie. I have a new skein of bright orange yarn in my craft cupboard that has been there for more than a year - untouched. I am going to work on turning it into a winter scarf for myself - it should be done by NEXT winter, LOL. :-)

I am working on this goal as well this year. Nice to see others will be jumping in too.

Today I am going to thread my yarn needle and work in the ends of projects and sew a few seams up.

I may even manage to get some sewing done and I am considering setting up my knitting machine......

I hope to have some time, tonight or tomorrow, after the cooking for next week and the laundry, etc. is done - to work on that scarf. I have only just started it.
