...when I have several piles of these?
Fitting knitting into my daily life has never been a problem. I love the process of creating handknitted garments and accessories. But ironically, wearing or using the finished products of that process has been an on-going struggle. I have a tendency to save my handknits for "special occasions" or for when I am attending social functions that involve other knitters. Of course, there are a couple of exceptions, like this cowl which I often wear in order to add subtle color to a neutral outfit. I also love throwing my Vitamin D cardigan on over a simple tank top. But the rest of the pile hardly ever sees the light of day. So in order to address this dilemna and give my handknits a place in my daily life, I am going to assign Mondays as my knit.where day. It is also my errand running day, so wearing some handknits might make doing the grocery shopping, etc more fun. And as an added incentive, I will also try to post a picture of the outfit every week on Mondays. Some words of warning: fashion blogger I'm not, so some outfits might require a visit from the Fashion Police. Also, unless I miraculously knit a whole bunch of lightweight garments between now and July, knit.where Mondays might be in temporary hiatus when the humid Maryland summer weather hits. But until then, I am going to try to rock those knits :)
