Goals

2019 goals

  1. Keep yarn/fiber/fabric additions to a minimum: I still haven't bought anything. I've used over 4 pounds of yarn this year and almost 2 pounds of fiber.
  2. Knit from previously purchased pattern: Check! I had purchased the Aspyn hat in 2017 but I had yet to use the pattern.
  3. Make what I feel like: My general yarn-y output has gone down but it's summertime so to an extent I feel like it's a natural progression.
  4. Spin 15 minutes a day: I may have missed a day or two in June but I mostly did this.
  5. Knit more handspun: Yup. The Aspyn hat was out of my Hobbledehoy handspun I made last year.
  6. Finish Superhero Sampler: Getting so close now. I'm down to my last 3 motifs.
  7. Taking care of my health: I did pretty well in June but I injured my right knee last Sunday and it's been slowing me down. Hopefully it will be better soon.
  8. Shop less: I don't think I bought anything in June. The Nordstrom Anniversary sale starts this week and I will likely buy a few items for fall/winter then, but I've been keeping my wardrobe additions pretty under control.
  9. Brush lettering: I think this is like dog training. it does improve but it happens so slowly that you don't always notice it.
  10. Doodling: I didn't do much of this in June. I've been busier overall and had less time but I'm hoping to dabble whenever I get a chance.
