I've been feeling a bit "meh" about most of my knitting lately. And I think a lot of it has to do with the sheer volume of sweaters sitting around here, many of which I've never worn, or have only worn once. Here's an example:
I made this top back in May of 2008. Today is the first time I've worn it.
As I was knitting it, I was sure that this was going to be my best project ever; that it would go with so many things; that it would make me feel like a million bucks. And as soon as I finished it, I set it aside and moved on to the next thing.
This is usually the way it goes with me and knitting. I think I have to finally admit that I'm a process knitter. And yet, if it's not something for me, a knitting project usually holds little interest.
I'm a fast knitter; I tend to complete 12 - 15 sweaters per year. Multiply that by the many, many years I've been knitting, and you can imagine that storage has become an issue. I've recently been trying to weed things out a little, but I'm not finding too many things I'm willing to part with.
How do you guys handle storage? Do you regularly let go of sweaters you're not wearing? Do actually wear the things you knit?
