I’m a little late with this post, but close enough to halfway 🙂
At the start of the year I set myself some goals to get accomplished this year. Specifically, I planned to knit:
– 6 pairs of socks, and
– 6 sweaters
So how is it going?
Close to on plan, surprisingly! I have done 3 pairs of socks and started a 4th, so that part is right on track. Are these the socks I planned to knit this year? 2 out of 3 are, surprisingly! Wonder Woman and the well-camouflaged shark were in the plan, the Pride socks were not, but who could resist?
I’m a little behind on the sweater goal – 2 and 3/4 sweaters done so far. Dockside and Arachne are finished, and the back and sleeves of Niazuma were finished a while ago. The front is started, and I’m a little past dividing for the neckline, so hopefully not too long until that one’s done!
The goal of sticking with strictly what’s in the bin has gone by the wayside, though. I wasted a month on the Temple of Flora shawl, which honestly I am mad at myself about, and also gave in to other little distractions here and there. And there’s another one coming up – Michelle Bernstein of PDXKnitterati is doing a KAL for a very cool shawl – Half the Knit Sky, which is based on time lapse photos of the night sky. I already have my yarn, so that is definitely happening.
Can I meet my goals? I think so. Three pairs of socks should be easily done between now and December. Three more sweaters might be a little more difficult, but not if I stay focused and….. Squirrel!
Did you set any goals for this year? How are you doing with them?
