Last week, I gave you the general backstory for the Knit Your Story KAL (which starts in a week!). (If you missed it, check my feed for a photo that says "Knit Your Story KAL".) What I haven’t mentioned yet is that it was my own story that led me to think about all this in the first place. ⠀

I was an off-and-on knitter for years. I was grandma-taught, picked it back up in college. But for years and years, it was just a hobby — something to occupy my hands and make the occasional pretty thing I didn’t really wear.⠀

That is, until I went through a very unexpected divorce in the first half of 2016.⠀

Suddenly, knitting became my therapy, the only way I could get through days that swung relentlessly between mediator sessions and planning a cross-country move and caring for my 6-month-old son. Knitting was quite literally an anchor. It stayed with me through it all. And the FOs I completed during that crazy time now stand as testament to what I faced — and what I survived. I wear them and remember how far I’ve come and how much stronger than I ever thought possible I’ve learned to be.⠀

Designing came to me a few months later. I was living with my parents, hardly sleeping because my son wasn’t, fighting an extended nursing strike. I desperately needed something creative and me-focused that would fit into a schedule over which I had (and still have) very little control.⠀

On a whim, I joined @arohaknits' Initiate Knit Design challenge. It took me more than six months to finish and release that first pattern. When I finally did, I set a goal: one pattern a month for the next six months. I couldn’t quit until then.⠀

Guess what? This month, with the Birchgrove Cowl, I’ll have made it.⠀

Could I ever have imagined this journey would take me where I am today? Not in my wildest dreams.⠀

Do I have plans to stop here? Absolutely not. But I do very much want to pause and celebrate. Join me?⠀

The Knit Your Story KAL will run 10/2 to 12/10. There will be prizes, weekly prompts, and general merriment. Signups are open, and you'll find the details and chatter (and discount codes!) over in my Ravelry group (link in profile). Play along?⠀

I'm almost a little sad that these cute little socks knit up so quickly! Such a fun pair to work on after my colorwork socks fiasco. This is the second of 4 pairs for my HPKCHC OWL. Pattern is Owlie Socks and yarn is Knit Picks Stroll Tweed Down Heather. #socks #sockknitter #iknitsocks #knittingaddict #knitandbehappy #happyknitter #hpkchc #winteriscomingknitfaster

Allez! Pour changer un peu, je reprends le #trendychale que je tricote pour ma copine @josephine_sans_marcelle 😘 le point mousse ça va vite et ça va engranger des points pour le #tournoideknittich2017 !!!!! #goteamgryffondor #goteamgryffindor
Bon, je dois quand même vous avouer ma déception totale de repasser à des aiguilles circulaires Prym😥 le câble est raide, le bout des aiguilles bien trop rond! Bref! Mes #hiyahiyasharps me manquent!

Nearly there! Just the toe left to knit. List of chores are very long today so don't think these socks will get finished today but definitely on the home straight.
