Once I had kids, my knitting time decreased significantly. I still enjoy making sweaters and larger projects, but I also make sure that I have a smaller project that I can work on as time permits. This way I still get to enjoy knitting whenever I can, but I also get to enjoy the feeling of finishing a project. There's nothing more satisfying and rewarding than seeing a completed knitting project.
Do you struggle with having enough time to knit? Try working on a few projects that you can whip-up in a short period of time. The joy that you'll get from your completed masterpiece will inspire you to keep knitting. Like anything in life, the more often you do something, the better you'll be and the more you'll tend to continue doing it.
The Knitter's Year Book by Debbie Bliss includes 52 projects, one for each week of the year. All of the knitting patterns in this book are designed to be quick-knit projects that can be completed in less than a week. Some are meant to be completed in just a couple nights, but some may take a full week. On top of being projects that you can finish quickly, these projects are also a great way to use-up old skeins of yarn that you have left-over from other projects.
Created by world-renowned knitting designer Debbie Bliss, this book has plenty of projects that you'll enjoy knitting for others, or keeping for yourself. As with any knitting book, not all of the projects may be your cup of tea, but you'll surely find dozens of fun projects that will keep you inspired to knit throughout the year.
