july failure offers room for august improvement
posted by soe 12:17 am

July marks the first month this year when I’ve neglected to complete a knitting project.

I know, I know. You’re wondering where all those projects have been hiding out. Well, apparently, just because I’ve been knitting them does not mean I’ve been photographing them. I’ll try to rectify that during the second half of the year so I can share a year’s worth of handknits.

I did knit in July, despite the almost constantly above 90 degree weather and the crappy workload that has me getting home at 8 far too many nights. I knit quite a bit in July, in fact (although not in the air-conditionerless car; some things just are not bearable).

I was not a focused knitter, however, and had several things going at once. By the time I finally decided to work on finishing one thing (my Skews), I didn’t have enough time left.


But what we can take away from this is that I have got a great shot at finishing at least one thing, if not multiple items, during the month of August.

And let’s face it, no one in Washington, D.C., is wearing handknit socks during the dog days of summer anyway.
