Six months ago I started my sky scarf. The plan was to knit a bit every day to match the color of the sky for the hour after dawn. Has that happened? Not so much the last two months. Have I stopped working on it? No.
What I've done is changed the approach.
I write down the color I need to knit every day and then spinning yarn one day during the weekend and then catching up with all the knitting at one time.
Here's what I've realized over the last month: A daily practice needs to fill a certain time frame, for example the time I'm on the bus in the morning, or it needs to be long enough that I can settle into what I'm doing.
It is easier for me to spend one hour every night working on a project then it is for me to spin yarn for the day and knit two rows, which takes me about ten minutes. The ten minutes is a teaser, I want to keep going and it makes me sad to stop.
I'm at 35 inches now, about 3 feet. My knitting for the first month is about one inch longer than my current month. I'm spinning thinner yarn now.
Today I will write "B" for my records. I came home to find the first of the crocus popping up. If I'd been a little earlier they might even have been open.
