Over My Head and Overwhelmed
Three active WIPs, two craft shows coming up fast and leaving on Tuesday for the Men’s Knitting Retreat next week. Creating a complex web survey during all that? Who thought that was a good idea? I had a bit of a panicky moment today when I realized I was in a bit over my head.
Technically Over My Head
I’ve gotten pretty good at creating rather complex web forms. For instance, I create registration forms for the Men’s Knitting Retreats. They include somewhat complex conditional logic. They also do calculations behind-the-scenes to pass registration fees over to PayPal for payment.
But the latest Knitting Skills Proficiency Tool I created has gone past my limits. Not only is it huge and complex, but it also requires interfacing into logged-in user-id functionality. So if you’ve tried multiple times to take the proficiency survey…thank you for struggling through. Once we have 100 respondents, I will be generating detailed reports that provide total scores, comparing the respondent with all other respondents. It will also include a proposed training regimen to expand knitting mastery (if someone wants to).
It will look something like this:
Despite my lack of technical skills, I’m still loving the process.
There are three active WIPs on my plate, but today I’m only showing one of them.
The latest Knitted Cross Stitch Scarf is almost finished. The colors are odd and seemingly wrong, but I love the overall look of the scarf. This seems to happen a lot with this design. I’ll choose two yarns that really shouldn’t work together, and they just seem to work even better than if I careful plan the mixing of colors.
The other two WIPs are the Scrappy Biased Scarf and the second Baby Surprise Jacket. Can’t wait to show you both on Monday!
