Yardage Totals 2010
February: 2850 yds
March: 2893 yds
April: 777 yds
May: 856 yds
I’ve been giving a lot of thought to my yardage tracking. At the end of this year, it will be two full years I have done so. For 2011, I may stop, as I’m toying with changing my focus and how I view productivity*. These monthly tallies have been educational and give me a good idea of how much I truly knit: in an average month, it’s looking to be about 1,355 yds or .77 miles. They definitely help me by realizing how much I can realistically knit when I look at stashing; they help me be more mindful in my yarn purchases. I have hard numbers to look at, data, and the math geek in me loves that. However, I’m not sure I need to continue doing them after this calendar year is finished.
I’m hoping for a productive August, with some FOs finally!
* I’ve been giving a lot of thought to simplicity and “stuff” lately. Keeping track of yardage, to not slow down to just enjoy everything, seems counterproductive to that. We shall see.
