I’m trying something new this month – In my effort to stay motivated to complete some of my long-standing WIPs this year, I’m going to do a monthly WIP wrap-up and talk about the status of all my projects. I got this idea from Nicole over at BookWyrm Knits. We’ll see if this helps or just annoys me. I’m also doing Year of Projects (more to come soon on that), and it might get too formulaic to do both so we’ll see how long this lasts.
I’m not counting my scrap blanket as a WIP but I will track the # of squares I do each month and I plan to weave in the ends of the squares I can at the end of each month. I have a tentative plan of making a 480 square blanket (24×20) so this one will be with us for a while!
WIPs/UFOs on June 1: 8
Projects cast on in June: 5
Projects cast off in June: 4
WIPs/ UFOs on June 30: 10
Blanket squares completed: 6
New blanket square count/ %: 68 – 14%
Wow, I did a lot of knitting this month! Unfortunately I did not make a dent in my total WIPs/UFOs count, because I knit a lot of things just self contained in June. I did finish one more of my long term sock WIPs – only one more to go!! I also cast on three new projects which were always planned to go into July, so I ended the month with two more WIP. Sigh, not really the direction I want to be going. Goals for July will be to finish the MKAL shawl and Wispy Crown socks, and then start making a dent in one of my long-term shawl projects and the Ranch Coat. Great Western Way is the closest to done so I think that’s where I’ll start.
What about you? Did you make progress on your WIPs in June?
