I'm re-evaluating my wardrobe from a knitting perspective. I have things I've knit that I never wear. I'm going to frog, and reknit into things I will either wear or gift. My time is extremely limited these days (Slow October will be a focus on all aspects of life here, not just my wardrobe - more on that next time), as is my clothing and knitting budget. My goal is to look at two things this month: what I wear and knit, and how I use my time. The second one is not just about 'spare time' or 'making more of my down time', it's about what I say yes and no to, and what occupies my mind as much as my time.
First up: I've frogged this
Flax for a friend at work.
Next up will be Harvest, with the same yarn. I have projects underway and plan to finish them. They've been blogged about here in the last few months (vest, summer tee, Sambuca pullover). I want to finish projects that are in progress, and then evaluate what I really want to do with my stash.
In short, Slow Fashion for me doesn't mean making all of my clothes. It means looking at why I have clothes I don't wear, and taking time to knit things I'll actually wear (or give as a thoughtful gift). More next week as I gather my projects, finish frogging the vest, and dig deeper into the real reasons why I can't seem to slow down my mind.
