Curious Handmade with Helen Stewart
Today I’m talking about what I’ve been knitting and an update on the decluttering project for January. This week I’m talking about tackling the stash and craft stuff. I've been very much enjoying watching and listening to some podcasts while I've been decluttering. I mention: Yarnderwoman Little Bobbins Truly Myrtle Announcement If you are interested in designing - check out A Playful Day Design Along What's in the WIP? Making good progress on my Amy Herzog Custom Fit pullover. Twisted cast on. Fixed. Amy Herzog's Knit to Flatter Craftsy course (on sale at the moment!). Custom Fit - "CustomFit makes custom patterns for hand-knit sweaters. It takes your choices, your body, and your hand-knit fabric and produces a pattern perfectly suited to you." The Simple Things My word for the year is "Simplify" and simplify and declutter is the theme for the podcast in January. Today I talk about the KonMari method from Marie Kondo's book below. I apply this method to the stash with surprising results. Some more decluttering resources: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing
