Wow! This was a super productive month for me, both in the sheer amount of knitting I did (this is by far the most stitches since I started tracking daily stiches in August) and in terms of getting my WIP/UFO list down! 5 items completed, and only one started! My goal for December is to finish the Slipstravaganza shawl, which should be possible based on the # of stitches left and how many stitches I usually make in a month. Add in some days off and no holiday back and forths, and this is shaping up to be another good month! If I finish the shawl, I think I’m going to seriously take a look at my UFO pile again. I frogged some items in May, and when I did I said on a few that if I hadn’t worked on some things by the end of the year, I would frog them, so I think I may hold myself to that. I’ve got newer items I want to work on, and I’d rather not have this many WIPs/UFOs hanging over me.
I just want to say, whenever I talk about my productivity, I want to be careful to not make anyone feel bad if you’re not as productive. I literally have nothing else to do except knit and go to work, so that translates into a lot of knitting. I should be doing things like taking walks, working out, etc but I don’t, I knit. So while I’m excited about my personal productivity in terms of these goals I’ve set for myself for getting things off the needles, it’s my own personal excitement and getting a ton of stiches in sometimes even masks crappy times in my life, it’s not necessarily a good thing. Our worth is not determined by productivity, and I’m mostly writing that for myself too for the inevitable drop off in productivity I’ll have at some point in the future 🙂
