Mid-Year Goal Review for 2015:
Dana:

  • knit a total of 7 sweaters for Madelyn before she gets here (definitely did this! Sprinkle Cardigan, Prim Little Layer Cake, Rocketry Baby Cardigan, Madelyn’s Bag Lady Sweater, Entrechat, Quaintly, Newborn Entrechat)
  • make up “project club” kits: yarn (or a note of what yarn to buy for a project), pattern notes, plus needles into a project bag and pick one per month (or pick a new one whenever I finish one) (didn’t do this, but I still might… who knows)
  • try to keep ahead on gift knits: socks for Chris and Mom, etc. (I’ve done great on this except for Chris’s anniversary socks, I pulled those out at the wire but I was in the hospital right before so I think I have an excuse ;) )
  • attempt to keep to a “two out, one in” buying plan with yarn- I don’t want to deny myself treats, but I do need to work through some stash! (meh. I’ve done pretty well with using up stash, but I haven’t exactly been keeping to this. The second half of the year might be different because of medical bills. I do have a destash up right now though, if you’re interested…)
  • replace old knitting needles as I can afford to with better ones (ie. get rid of Brittany dpns and replace with Karbonz since the Brittanys are starting to splinter) (I’ve done well on this! I now have Karbonz in US 2 through US 9, and want to get up to US 13 by Christmas!)
  • shop at my LYS first before buying online if I can, especially for commercial yarns. (I have definitely done this, but I haven’t bought much commercial yarn this year.)

Brittany:

  • Stop worrying about stash- knit what makes me happy! (did pretty good on this!)
  • Finish or Frog- I’m sick of looking at old wips! Try to take care of one before I can start something new- Sunk Cost Fallacy and how it applies to WIPs (frogged a few things and have been working diligently on WIPs)
  • Make Rolling Rock using oldest stash yarn I own! (planned for second half of the year!)
  • Find other interesting things to do with sock yarn (queueing new patterns as I find them and will probably cast something new on soon)
  • Try something new this year (yes!)

Episode 110: Make It Work!

Thanks for listening to episode 110 of Just One More Row!

 

 

FO’s- Make It Work using Impulse of Delight Mere Sock

WIPs- Baby Groot, Sesame Street Socks

 

NitQ- The Sock Knitter’s Shawl
Announcements- Christmas in July! We’ll post full list of rules, but the main idea is any type of craft as long as it’s a gift for someone, or christmas/winter holiday themed. New rule though- one post per project. It will make it easier on us to draw for winners. In the spirit of making things easier, we’re only going to be giving away patterns this time. So, if you’re a pattern designer, or would just like to donate something for a pattern prize, we’re gladly accepting those! This way it makes it easier on both of us- nothing to ship, nothing to keep track of. Thank you!!
