I’ve neglected this blog (again!) but haven’t neglected the knitting or crocheting.
My last post I lost my way… but I won’t feel guilty was in June and in the lead up to that I found it difficult to regularly blog. I wasn’t in a routine and in trying to track my progress I ended up getting more distracted by my blog than I was enjoying it.
So we’re trying again – 3rd time lucky and all that – and this time it’s definitely ‘no pressure’ writing to chart my progress through crafting.
My blog was started as I wanted to make more items in 2019 than I did in 2018 and I thought a weekly blog to hold myself to account would be a good addition. I planned to track my crafting hours and see progress as I ticked things off towards my target. But in reality all it did was make me cranky as I’d forget how many times I had knit on a certain day, I didn’t have time to write the blog as it took me away from knitting etc etc.
I’ve recently discovered a love of crafting podcasts though and the more relaxed format that I can watch as I knit really inspired me. As an extrovert I’m not shy in front of a camera so maybe that will be a channel I explore in 2020, but for now I’m going to aim to write regular blogs to share what I’ve been up to.
So for now, thanks for reading as I dust off my writing brain after many months off. I’ve got an end of year blog in plan to summarise where I got to – and reader you’ll be pleased to know that the ’31 project target’ is in my sights!
I mentioned a couple of podcasts that I’ve gotten into recently so go and check out Calon Yarns, Yarn n Yarns and Wet Coast Wools on YouTube – this is an unsponsored blog to share some great channels with you! Let me know of any other channels you’re into!
Regular readers will know my love of coffee and finding new places to knit and I’ve recently discovered Stag coffee in Cardiff, the perfectly chilled place for a few hours writing or knitting!
Until next time, happy crafting.

Thank you! I’m definitely up for one video, perhaps we’ll see how the edit goes before committing to two…
Have a fab Christmas too, looking forward to more vlogs in 2020!
I regularly lose my way, welcome back. How about a little crochet a day for 2020? We’ making 6 blankets (plus, I’m sure) in 2020. Take a look at #crochet6in366 on Instagram, or n my blog.
