Knitting and Crochet Blog Week – Day 1 #4KCBWDAY1

This year I’m not on holiday (boo) like I was during last year’s Knitting and Crochet Blog Week so I get to participate (yay!).

I am so excited to be participating in the fantastic initiative which is Knitting and Crochet Blogging Week.
For those who don’t know what’s going on (like I did last year, I had no idea it was even a thing until I noticed knitting bloggers mysteriously blogging about the same thing at the same time) Knitting and Crochet Blog Week is a week of posting, where every day is about a different topic. The topics are decided here, and some of them are taking me out of my comfort zone, as well as making me think creatively about knitting.
I still think the best part is reading what other people have to say on the same subject.

Day 1 (4KCBWDAY1) is deciding which of the 4 houses I fit in to.
I could quite easily be a peacock because, well, look at my hair, clearly I’m attracted to bright colours. I drool over brightly coloured yarns on etsy, and day dream about tardis blue, pale sunshine yellow, and every shade of pink.

My Manatee side is me relaxed whilst taking comfort in what I’m creating. Its curling up on the couch with my favourite crocheted blanket, needles gently clicking in my hands.

The curious part of me which wanted to learn knitting in the first place is definitely House Monkey. My Monkey side also keeps me learning new things, trying new patterns, and taking me out of my comfort zone.

But they’re all just parts of me. I’m a Peacock in the Summer, a Manatee in the Winter, and a Monkey when restlessness strikes. I’m always a Bee.

I feel unproductive whenever I don’t have needles in my hand, and I often drift off to sleep visualising the last stitch pattern I was working on. (If you were wondering, rib stitch is particularly calming to visualise, more so than actually knitting it.)
I’ve demonstrated that I’m poly-WIP-erous on many occasions, just as a Bee should be.

Knitting is a way to improve my patience and attention span. Though I still gravitate to quick projects, particularly if one gets too boring.

So I’m proud to be Team Bee!

    1. You should!! I’ve planned a couple of posts and I’ve had so much fun. Particularly doing things I wouldn’t have ever done before. There’s still stacks of time.

      1. Yes, , every time one begins a pattern they are working “in the future” picturing when it is done. lol It is that in between time that can get trying.

  1. A new blogger and I am learning to love this. Had no idea this existed or the fun it could be. You have opened up my world making me a bit of a phoenix starting over once again.

  2. So let me see if I’ve got this straight: You’re a Bee-cock, with seasonal Manatee disorder, and restless monkey syndrome. .

  3. I love how you identified with all the houses, because I feel that sometimes too! I’ve been seeing lots of people who identify as bees, it’s been really fascinating.

  4. Go team bee! And falling asleep visualising a stitch pattern is something I do too often – although that often leads to knitting dreams! If I had actually made all the sweaters that I’ve had dreams about my wardrobe would be an avalanche of alpaca.

Thanks for stopping by!
