Knitting Through the Seasons

Recently, I’ve been using this worksheet to track my crochet progress through the months. Every month I would choose a project (or several) I would work on during that month and then I would check off a box every day that I actually worked on my chosen project. This worked out great. With that reminder in my Hobby binder I actually crocheted a lot more than if I didn’t have it. I just hated to see those empty boxes so I crocheted for at least 15 minutes every day (depending on what my goal that month was – sometimes my goal would be to crochet for a certain amount of time and sometimes to crochet several rows for my project).

However, once I started knitting regularly, I couldn’t find a similar worksheet so I made some for myself. But, since I would get bored with just the same worksheet every month, I chose to make 4 different worksheets. While the worksheets are not really representative of the seasons, I called them that because I intend to use each one three times during a year. Here are pictures of my worksheets. If anyone is interested, contact me through the Contact form here on my website and I’ll send the pdf file to your e-mail.

  • June 7, 2014 – I’ve started learning to knit this year and I’m finally feeling confident enough to start a larger project. I’ve found this pattern on Ravelry and I fell in love with it the moment I saw it. If it turn’s out OK, I intend to make another one for a little girl.

  • July 19, 2014 – I’m almost halfway finished with the blanket. It’s really hard to work on it while it’s so hot. The yarn is hard to work with while my hands are sweaty from the heat! Here are some new pics…
