Sometimes it is best to just move on. I rarely frog any knitting project. I was being creative learning how to knit toe up two at a time socks on two circular needles. But I added a new-to-me heel and made a jumbled mess.
I am actually relieved that I frogged. It felt very liberating. The yarn has been returned to stash.
I also came to the realization that I am a monogamous knitter. So no more multiple projects at any one time for me. I am going to concentrate of finishing my Brookings Pullover.

Slowly but surely I am making my way through my unfinished projects. This is a guild challenge from a few years back. The challenge was to design a decorative element for the center square. A theme was given each month. This quilt was made entirely of stash fabric.

I am try Toe Up, Two at a Time on Two Circular needles for the first time. So far, I am enjoying it with no major mishaps. I am using Sockmatician's recipe for the pattern.

I started to set up a calendar with weekly and monthly posts that I wanted to participate in. That working calendar is no where to be found on my desk or in my files (maybe it was a dream). What could my excuse be this year for not following through? With the pandemic, time stood still and it has been only been a day or two instead of five months or whatever we are up to now.
Like everyone else, I have cleaned every closet, drawer and shelf at least twice. I have inventoried every single skein of yarn and gathered all quilting projects in one place. In a moment of pure embarrassment I found not 20 or 30 PhD's but 42 of them. This is my mid-year re-commitment to GET IT DONE.
I do like using Gail's Tally Record to keep track.
