Here I am, a week late making my bimonthly check on my progress for this year’s goals. Since things have gone rather astray since August and I’ve barely thought about goals, I almost didn’t review them. But there’s so much to learn from what we do and don’t achieve, I thought I’d do a quick review before I enter the home straight to the end of the year. And I’m glad I did, because progress really hasn’t been as bad as I thought…
Attend at least two workshops (or courses) – Big Tick here, a workshop at Farnham Maltings in February, which unfortunately taught me very little, and Jane Deane’s marvellous spinning course which has been quite simply amazing for many many reasons.
Knit Lovely Husband a Christmas Sweater – More progress has been made, but he seems to be around a lot, so I’m not getting much chance to work on it. But it WILL be finished in time.
Learn something knitting related each month – Completely and utterly lost track of what I have and haven’t done on this one!
Knit something that isn’t a project for the Dartmoor Yarn Company at least three times a week – I’ve definitely been sticking to this if I replace the word knitting with crochet – which I’m sure is allowed.
Make a knitted bag – not yet…
Make gift a least once a month – After a good start to the year I ground to a halt on this, but things have picked up lately: I’ve made the beaded angels and snowmen and nearly completed the wavelength sock, and with my sights on Christmas, I’m feeling confident I’ll make a dozen gifts this year.
Become and remain UFO free all year – having been UFO free all year, I finally have to admit that ‘that’ scarf and the mitred mystery haven’t been touched for months 😦
Write up non-DYC kit patterns within a month of completing an object/garment – Eek! Still not written up the Heartfelt cardigan pattern I finished months ago.
Work on my patchwork quilt for and average of an hour each day – opps! Haven’t touched this for ages. But it’s getting cold, so I need to pick it back up very soon.
Indulge in creative play one afternoon a week – I’ve not been managing this every week, but am doing some 🙂
