So I've got all these ideas, and need to organise them. The biggest of these (currently) are the 'Kitchener Unravelled' book and the 'Twisted Woolly Toppers' mini book (although it's title isn't definite) I have a couple of single designs I ought to finish too.
- For the Kitchener book, I am setting myself the (hopefully not too unrealistic target) of getting one tutorial photographed a day. They don't have to be fully edited photographs, just they that have to be taken so I can move onto the next one. I'd like to finish 5 a week.
- For the Twisted Woolly Toppers collection (i.e. 10 beanies with a twist... which may or may not contain cables!) I will set myself the target of working on them during the evenings and aiming to complete one a fortnight.
- The kitchener tutorials will be my day-time target, the beanies with a twist will be my evening doing's.
- I will finish the single patterns before starting on the beanie booklet, and then vow not to start any new single designs until the beanie booklet is done unless it's under very exceptional circumstances.
I don't know exactly how many tutorials will be in the Kitchener book, but I'd like to cover at least 30 different stitches if i can (i.e. how to graft those 30 different stitches) and then add all additional tutorials as needed. If I can work more, I will. If I can't I won't beat myself up. Of course a book about Kitchener won't just be 'how to graft this stitch'.. it will also cover various aspects, like the half stitch jog and what the different manoeuvres achieve. I've got some of the tutorials done already, and methinks once in the groove the others really won't be that bad (bearing in mind that I like kitchener and that I get it)
The thought of finishing and publishing the 'Kitchener Unravelled' book is my driving force - I know I'm going to feel an overwhelming sense of achievement when it's done. And I know I can do it. It will be amazing!
Sound like a good plan?
