Like I said above, I’m really happy with my progress this month. This was my second highest average stitches per day since I started tracking stitches last year, second only to November. Those are the only two months when I’ve done more that 100K stitches in the month. Deciding to try and get to 1M stitches has kind of lit a fire under me haha! As you can see above, I’ve decided to add some tracking of that. I had a few really good days this month that corresponded to days I didn’t knit much last year, which means I’m headed in the right direction for my million stitch challenge!
I also can’t really believe how many small projects I started and finished this month! Sometimes I really like feeling the productivity of smaller items which I can finish pretty quickly. I am doing an awesome job of meeting my goal of having less than 5 non-blanket WIP, and I’m down to 3. I’m not sure that number will get much smaller as I don’t really have a big desire to work on the blanket or the shawl, so once the socks are done I’ll probably cast on something new.
My knitting goals for September include finishing the Ace Pride socks, and getting at least 6 blanket squares done so that I’m done with the first 1/4 of the blanket. I do have a week of vacation at the end of this month, and I plan to do a lot of knitting then. I’m still not sure what big project to cast on next, but I’ll probably have it figured out by then, and hope to do a lot of knitting during that time. I’m going up to Lake Placid NY and hopefully there will be some gorgeous scenery and cool fall nights perfect for wool.
A few recent test knits I completed are also being released in September, including (I think) that giant project I worked on in the spring/summer, and I literally can’t wait to show it off!!! What are you all planning for this month?
