On 2011 and Goals

http://www.flickr.com//photos/greenbeanstring/sets/72157628589422159/show/ So back on January 1st, I set out some personal and fibery goals, I checked in on them again in July, and now I get to see how I stacked up.  I will be setting some new goals for 2012, which I will announce on January 1st, 2012.

So here I have reframed my goals as things I have (or haven't done) in 2011.

In 2011, I:

Personal Life-

Fibery -

  • I bought less yarn than last year, but still bought a bunch of yarn.
  • Spun fairly regularly and tried a few different techniques.
  • Didn't manage to dye any yarn (although I did a cheap Old Navy pashmina during an unfortunate washing incident)
  • Worked on some old techniques like stranded colorwork, lace, and cables, although not all that much as I would have liked.
  • Tried out some new techniques like duplicate stitch andI-Cords, although that doesn't cover half of the cool techniques out there.
  • Crocheted two blankets, and am now working on a cowl.
  • Didn't make a mitten of the month club, although I did finish five pairs of mittens, including one pair of the Woodlands Mitten Kit from Knit Picks.
  • Updated the blog regularly, including FO posts as well as other posts, fibery and otherwise.

So overall, I did well to meet my goals and there are a few things I wasn't planning on when I set my goals in December that came up through the year, like socks.   I am excited to set my goals for 2012.
