Me Made May

Have you ever done Me Made May? The name is essentially what it’s all about: that throughout the month, you will wear something each day that you have made. I challenged myself for the first time this year -it gave me a chance to show off my assortment of garments and a challenge for something new each day. Things in Ontario, pandemic-wise, weren’t so great at the end of April (and haven’t been for a WHILE), so this is gave me something to look forward to and reasons not to wear sweatpants 24/7.

I documented my wardrobe over on my Instagram page, posting a new picture every day with my knitting item… my poor Instagram followers…

The challenge has been interesting in that I had to really put thought into what I’m going to wear. I also wore things, like my Doodler shawl, that don’t get worn very often. Everyone, I’m sure, has their favourite pieces or items that get more more often than others, so I dug a little deeper into the wardrobe and giving items not often worn a chance to shine.

By mid month, things got hot here in Ontario – it almost felt like we skipped a season – wearing wool started feeling a little more like a chore or punishment than a fun daily challenge, but I persevered!

Would I do this again? Maybe. I don’t think I’d want to do it again in May because, heat and humidity reared their ugly heads. Also, I feel like my knitted wardrobe got a good amount of attention this time around, so I’d want a big slew of new things to show off if I was to do this again. But all in all, it was fun, I didn’t appear to annoy too many people with my daily posts, and it gave me something to look forward to each day.
