Today’s Chat Topic: What “kind” of a knitter are you? What is your motivation? Has that stayed the same or evolved over time? Do you think of yourself one way, but you’re actually another? I would love to hear about it!

It was another low output month, but I was expecting that given that July is Tour de Fleece time. So I accomplished quite a bit of spinning but not so much knitting outside of two shorter knit dates with a local friend. I did omit a small amount of yardage for this month, but I would rather just tack it into August’s tally instead. It keeps things clean and neat. Those ~30 yards weren’t going to make much of a difference anyway.  Despite this set back, I am still on track to average knitting 1,000 yards of yarn a month; I still have a healthy buffer!

Soon, the weather will cool here, and I will be more inspired to knit larger projects. Not much else to say this month, since I worked on so little. I hope you all have had a lovely summer so far! (But I will admit: I am longing for fall and winter again.)
