WIP Wednesday: Much-needed Spring cleaning

For the last few months I’ve been quiet on Ravelry. As part of the whole “omg I failed to knit Christmas jumpers and am the worst knitter ever” episode, showing my face on a site full of people with exciting and lovely projects seemed like salt in the wound. Then last weekend I found myself singing Ravelry’s 外汇交易平台 praises to a couple of uninitiated knitters, and realised I quite miss it. Looking over my profile, it’s clear that it’s been slipping somewhat. Queued items I don’t even like, never mind intend to knit, projects marked as work in progress that were completed months ago, it’s basically a total clip. Not for long!

I’ve already cleared out my queue. Ok, well I’ve cleared out my queue a bit. Yeah, there are 39 things still left on there. It’s the best I can do, shurrup.

The projects page is another beast entirely. The ratio of completed projects to WIP/hibernating projects makes me sadface, so it’s really time to do something about it. Projects like my that have been sitting with one of the pair completed since last April, or the that did in fact get finished in time for last Summer’s holiday to Bavaria but somehow I never took photos or wrote it up as complete or even blogged about it.

Projects without photos are a depressing sight.

On Sunday I became gripped with this determination to complete projects, and did something about it. Quite what, you’ll have to wait and see, but suffice to say that this week’s FO Friday blog post will leave you reeling in awe and amazement. Honest.

    Your spring cleaning is a really good idea! I do this occasionally as well … Usually I queue patterns out of a “shiny! Must have” moment, but don’t stop to think whether I really will ever knit them. 😉

    I send you a lot of enthusiasm for a big photosession!

    Lots of love,
    Julia 🙂

      My problem is that I queue things optimistically, and then six months later realise I haven’t suddenly dropped 3 dress sizes and it would never ever look good on me :p

    Wow! Good work cleaning up Ravelry! If you need some help finishing up more WIPs, I just happen to be hosting a knit-along on my blog to do just that all April long. I can’t wait to see what you’ve finished up Friday!

    My queue is due for a good cleaning, but it’s something like 33 PAGES long, so that’s never going to happen. 🙂

      Wow, and I thought I’d been terrible at hoarding patterns. Maybe clear out a couple of pages per week? You’ll feel better once it’s done, and also feel less guilty about queueing even more stuff! 😀
