2019 goals

  1. Keep yarn/fiber/fabric additions to a minimum: I can't believe I've almost made it a 1/2 year without buying any new stash.
  2. Knit from previously purchased pattern: I finished 2 things: my May socks were from the book Sock Architecture, and the Baroque cardigan was from Stitch 'N Bitch Crochet: The Happy Hooker.
  3. Make what I feel like: I must have done a good job with this because looking back my projects were all over the place this month.
  4. Spin 15 minutes a day: Sadly, no. but I am working on it fairly consistently (about 3-4 times per week).
  5. Knit more handspun: Nope.
  6. Finish Superhero Sampler: I'm so happy with my progress. I only have 5 motifs left.
  7. Taking care of my health: Well I thought I was doing well, but I ended up hurting my back in late May and I'm still recovering from that. I think that sewing/quilting for long periods is really hard on my back so I'm setting a timer and making myself quit after 20 minutes.
  8. Shop less: I bought a few items to refresh my spring/summer wardrobe, but I have also sewn or refashioned a few pieces so I bought less than I could have.
  9. Brush lettering: Still working on it but I'm pretty discouraged. I don't ever seem to get any better at it no matter how much I practice.
  10. Doodling: I ran out of prompts to follow so I haven't quite known what to work on but I am still dabbling a little bit each work day.
