9/20/12 - Starting up this project again. Spending time this week setting up a word document that includes all the necessary components, and plan to tackle it bit by bit until it’s done.

12/19/12 - It seems that I find myself diving head-first into this project then, after a short stint, I am distracted by other things and it gets set aside. With no “real” due date, it’s easy to find other things to take priority. That being said, at this rate it’ll never get done so, I NEED to start a plan to make it happen. Perhaps someday I’ll sit down and do some thinking about what the Master Hand Knitting Program means and create some sort of plan to keep it progressing.

5/30/13 - took this out of “Hibernation” on my Ravelry page, and moved the box containing the project in my studio to “front and center” - hoping that the visual reminders might coax me into doing the work needed to get this level completed. I’ve completed a good portion of the written requirements but sitll find myself resisting the knitting of the swatches. Why is that?? With a new-found interest in completing the unrelated Certified Instructor Program Level 1 I’m hoping that the motivation for finishing that level will transfer to this.

9/1/2013 - still looking at the project in my projects page and fighting the urge to put it back in hibernation. With so many things on the horizon about to command my attention, I’m focusing (today) on the CYC Certified Instructor Program Level 1 that’s so close to being completed.

9/26/2013 - completed level 1 of the CYC Certified Instructor Program. That crosses one thing off my “to do” list!

11/26/2013 - bought new yarn for swatches (the same cream, but green as my contrasting color)
