Finished projects? What finished projects?

So apparently I really suck at taking photos of my finished projects before I give them away. Here, let me show you…

Now, two of those projects haven’t been given away. They’re mine. But I’ve misplaced the mittens (and I really miss them, because it’s COLD outside), and I haven’t blocked the Color Affection yet, because I suck at blocking. (For the record, clockwise from top left: Color Affection by Veera Välimäki knit out of Night Owl Fibers Basic Sock in colourways Rusty Hook, Pumpkin Spice Latte, and Leather Boots; Knotty Mittens by Tessa Rexroat knit out of Bear in Sheep’s Clothing Bear Masham in the Squall colourway; Winterlong by Bristol Ivy knit out of (discontinued) Filtes King Velour in colourway 1317; and Peppermint Mocha Socks by C.C. Almon knit out of Tilting Planet Apollo Sock in the Ocean in a Bucket colourway.)

It’s kind of like when I’m cooking, and I think afterward, “Man, I really should have taken pictures while I was prepping this, because it’s really good! And I want to share the recipe on the blog, but now I have no pictures!”

Suffice to say, I’m not very good at planning out blog posts ahead of time. But I’m going to try to improve on that. Just like I’m constantly trying to improve my organizational skills and my abilities to plan things out before they surprise me. These are things that are negatively affected by depression and executive dysfunction. So I’m a work in progress. Just like my knitting projects 🙂

I’m still working on the same two projects, incidentally…. Find Your Fade by Andrea Mowry (Drea Renee Knits designs), and a sock pattern of my own design that I’ve been dragging my feet on (see what I did there?) because I decided to try something different out for the sole, it’s not working out, and I can’t bring myself to rip back AGAIN. So I’m just not knitting on them right now. I have other WIPs that are more time-sensitive, but the Find Your Fade is bringing me joy right now, and I need a bit of that, so FYF it is! (By the way, I was at Rhinebeck, and I was THIS CLOSE to Andrea Mowry! I was too shy to bother her.)

Some of my upcoming posts will be about pickling, knitting, and cooking. I’m trying to work out a schedule so that my updates are more regular. And then maybe I’ll feel a little bit less like life keeps tackling me as I’m trying to walk down a flight of stairs. Maybe. 🙂
