the thirteenth journal ends. it still amazes me. this journaling habit. 62 months of my life. documented in 13 journals.

the last page is always me today. a snapshot of what I'm about right now. (and what my hair looks like - funny how much that's changed in the last five years!)
the end of journal #13
with journal #6 I started tying a piece of yarn from each finished knitting project to the moleskine band
with journal #7 I started listing those finished projects inside the front cover. and with journal #13, I added the yardage to that knitting record.
88:365 a knitting record.

since early october, I've completed 21 projects and knit just over 9,000 yards of yarn. which is more than FIVE miles. whoa. (no wonder I haven't had much time for anything else!) I haven't knit a sweater since november when I finished vodka gimlet. and ten of those projects were for others.

I hope journal #14 tells a similar story about knitting for others. but maybe not knitting quite so much. and definitely getting back to sweaters. we'll see.


  1. I think your journals are amazing.

  2. When the journals begin piling up . . . and you can see the changes in your life right there. . . recorded in their pages. . . that's when you really KNOW the power of journaling! Welcome 14! (With many, many more!)

  3. Wow - I had no idea you were already about to start #14! I remember giving you #1! Can't wait to see you this weeek!

  4. what a treasure trove! love the idea of the yarn tied to each. thanks for sharing.

  5. Those journals are priceless. You have real discipline. Good on you.


Thanks for the feedback!
