New year, new workstation!

I got myself a new desk for the coming year. Up until two days ago, all my things were scattered around my bed. My knitting basket was by the foot, my sewing machine was by the head, my big bag of fiberfill was left wherever.

So I decided to get rid of my old set of rattan drawers and replace them with a desk-cum-shelf piece o' furniture. It took me and Marc three hours and two different malls before we found the perfect one -- We found an Oxford Ladder!! And it is, in fact, a desk-and-shelf-in-one! It's pretty minimalist-looking too, so it was perfect for me.

Everything that was stored horizontally in my side of the room is now stacked vertically. Creating more space!

Now how to organize a scattered brain?

A lot of my friends have been persuading me to start selling my projects and patterns. They've all been saying good things about them, but I still haven't found the courage to actually start selling my own stuff.

To add to that, I can't seem to come up with a definite line of designs. I always come up with new stuff that are totally unrelated to what I was working on previously. It's actually holding me back, this scattered brain of mine. I keep getting excited about new things without even solidifying what designs I finally make.

A couple of people have even invited me to sell their stuff with them, but I turned them down 'cause I wasn't feeling confident with what I already have.

Maybe I should just drop all my current projects at the moment and just focus first on finding focus. Hrrrmmmm...

Stuck in a (productive) rut

I haven't been staying true to the purpose of this blog. I created this blog so I could document my progress in coming up with projects and the actual steps I take in completing them. And here I am, neglecting it for more than a month.

For the past few weeks, I've been experimenting and trying to improve my skills by undertaking new projects that contain techniques that I haven't tried before. I got so crazy about trying to knit socks but it took me a while before I could actually make one. At the same time, I started making a knit hoodie, which is in fact the largest project I have ever finished thus far.

But since I'm groovy like dut, I actually was able to make both during the hiatus of my blogginski. Et voilà:

The first pair of socks I've ever knit <3

The first hoodie I ever knit <3

More details about each project coming soon. Still pretty busy.
