Big Plans

As October started, I had all kinds of big plans for ALL the Halloween knitting I was going to get done. It turns out those big plans would have been achievable if 1) I was retired, and 2) I didn’t need to sleep. Here’s what the plan looked like:

So what of that did I actually get done? Maybe around half of those things, when you factor in the unexpected Dolores costume.

The socks are about 3/4 of the way done at this point, but I just could not get them finished by Halloween. Also, I have made a start on the Nightmare Before Christmas shawl, loosely outlined above, really only a start. That is going to be a big project, so maybe it will be done by next Halloween. We shall see!

The Ghost cowl and the Cemetery Drive cowl are next year projects. So not too bad, but I can’t help but feel a little disappointed. Next year I either need to start earlier, or set my expectations a little lower πŸ™‚

Do you make unrealistically grand plans for your crafting (or anything else in life) and then feel a little bad when you don’t achieve them?

  1. Yes, my whole life is an unrealistic grand plan. But, I would not be where I am, which is in a pretty good place, if I weren’t unrealistic sometimes. Look at all you accomplished! I particularly love your cowls. I’m going to go look at the Cemetery Drive Cowl. And I can’t wait to see your Nightmare Before Christmas Shawl. That’s such an inspired idea!
