Organized is not something that I generally am, at least when it comes to physical objects. As far as knitting goes, I tend to have yarn near where I spend my time – at the computer. So there are usually some bits of yarn on the desk and some on the bookcase behind it. And in various knitting bags.
I am a little organized in one case – I have my circular needles in a fishing tackle case and I actually put quite a few of them in it at any one time. There are always a few sitting around loose, but more are filed in pockets by size. It’s very helpful when I need more needles.
Thanks to Ravelry, though, I am pretty organized in the history of my knitting projects. I joined Ravelry in September of 2007. I currently have 134 projects on Ravelry, 5 frogged, 7 hibernating, 13 in progress and the rest finished. I don’t always put a project on Ravelry right away, but I do create a project once I’m pretty convinced that I’m going to continue it. I’ve been trying to declare projects as hibernating when I’m not really working on them any more, but this review shows there are several more that should be switched from in progress to hibernating. I generally put quite a bit of information in my notes, and I find it extremely useful to go back to.
One of my in progress projects is a Herbivore I’m knitting in Arial in one of the colorways from Meg’s last club called Dazzle. I can’t capture the colors well, but this shot does at least give some notion of the subtle color gradations in this colorway.
I’ve made further progress since that shot – I’m beginning the light blue showing on the outside of that ball – and I’m just loving it! Pretty soon, I should get that done. I’m really looking forward to seeing how it works out.
