Whether you’ve been knitting for a long time now or you’re completely new to knitting, one thing that can really help focus your efforts and make things less stressful is to create a basic schedule. This way, you know what you’ll be knitting ahead of time, or at least have a basic idea.
Many knitters create their schedule by days of the week, Monday Mindbenders, Tuesday Teasers, etcetera. You get the idea. We’re going to create a sample schedule for knitting. Let’s start our week on Monday and go from there.
Monday Machine Knitting: On this day, you could write about the differences between machine knitting versus hand knitting, pros, cons, patterns, and so forth. Some great tutorial topics would be how to convert a hand-knitting pattern into a machine-knitting pattern and how to work in rounds on a knitting machine. There are also a lot of one-day projects out there for machine knitting, like making a sweater in one day. You could review different machine knitting patterns, projects, and accessories.
Tuesday Twos: Get it? Knit one, purl two? Okay, so maybe I’m not as witty as I think I am, but you get the idea. You’re looking for a daily project that you can easily knit. This could be patterns, whatever comes up when you’re knitting.
Wednesday WIPs: If you’re wondering WIP stands for work(s) in progress. So, sticking with our knitting example this would be whatever projects you are currently working on. Share pictures, talk about mistakes you might have made while going through the pattern, share a tip about the project.
Thursday Threads: Product reviews could go on this day. Talk about that awesome luxurious new wool you just bought, or the shiny new needles.
Friday Free Patterns: Here is another opportunity to talk about products that you’re using and the free patterns that you’ve found on the internet. The nice thing about free patterns is that they free us up to splurge a little more on the supplies.
Even better if you create your own patterns and share them with your readers. You’ll find yourself with a following of fans in no time at all.
Saturday Scarves and Socks: Everyone always seems to be knitting one or the other at any given moment.
Sunday Wild Cards: I like to leave Sunday as a wild card day where I might or might not knit.
