Bet I’m not the only one saying ‘Wow! That month went quick!’ And since January’s come to an end, it’s time for me to review my progress on this year’s goals. Here’s how I’ve done…
Make a gift a least once a month on average
I made two gifts last month, one a two dog crochet hook/pencil case..
For the other I made a beach hut pencil case then added some needles, yarn and wrote the easiest pattern I could think of for a friend who is in the very early stages of learning to knit.
To give random gifts (gifts not attached to birthdays, house moves, Christmas etc) at least 6 times this year
The dog crochet hook/pencil case was a random gift.
Make the Dartmoor Yarn Company a more ecofriendly business
I’ve been having a think about ways to do this. I have a few ideas, which should be put into action in February.
Become and remain UFO free all year.
As I posted in Tuesday, I’ve started working on several and have reduced my UFO count from ten to nine by finishing the cushion on the left.
Experiment/play/learn once a week
I’ve been trying out a few patterns, revising how to tie macrame knots and attempting to devise a pattern for a new kit…
Write up my outstanding knitting patterns then write them up within two weeks of object/garment completion.
I’ve got the sheep sock pattern written up, but haven’t shared yet.
Spin for 15 minutes a day when possible
Due to the wool top setting off my never ending tickley cough, I only started this a week ago, but I have now spun and plied the white and spun some of the red…
Always have some knitting using yarn from my stash on my needles
Opps! This one isn’t happening – unless you count my UFOs, in which case I did knit a few rows of this…
Finish the quilt I started in 2017
Not yet touched, but I want to get the other quicker unfinished sewing projects out of the way first.
All in all, I’m quiet pleased with my achievements this month – given I was unwell at the start and took out nearly all of last week for family time. February, hopefully, will be even more productive.
How’s your crafting fared in January, whether you set goals or not?
