I set a goal of 12 finished yarn projects this year (knitting and crochet), and of course I am using collections in my crafter’s bullet journal to stay on top of them.
Looking back now, I don’t think I finished any yarn projects last year, I started a whole bunch though! In 2019 that all changes, I am determined to have physical objects to show for all my crafting.
The first thing I did was to find and catalog all my unfinished projects. You might have already done this, but if not my free five day class can help you to get clear. By the end of it you’ll have a list of the projects you want to keep working on (among other things).
Open your bullet journal to a new two page spread, and on the right side page list all your WIPS. Include a space to note when you started the project, and also a spot for noting when you complete it.
On the left side of the spread start noting down the projects you want to do (you will also have generated some of this from the Get Clear class.) I included a column for jotting down where the project is from, as well as noting if it was transferred to the WIP, and what date I completed it.
I’m convinced that moving forward this will help me to actually get more projects down, instead of jumping willy nilly from new project to new project. The start date of some of my WIPs (2015!), is very motivating in itself!
If you don’t have a bullet journal (but why not though?), or you do, but don’t want to draw these up, you can pick up the printables in the shop.
Tell me, are you pretty good at keeping up with your knitting and crochet projects? How many do you complete in an average year?
