Posted in Monthly Goals at 2:06 pm by Melanie

My 2006 Goals:
1. Cable & Ribbed Socks- Interweave Knits Fall 2005- Done.
2. Leaf Socks- Interweave Knits Winter 2005- Not Done.
3. Twisty Turns- wrap from Wrap Style- Not Done.
4. Blue Caplet- from Wrap Style – Not Done, although I’d still like to do it.
5. Finish my OLD green sweater. Longest WIP. I only have 1/2 a sleeve and seaming to do.- Not done. Although I DID get the rest of the yarn, I really want to finish it still.
6. Finish Classic Cardigan. – Not done. 
7. Knit the Hourglass sweater (from Last minute knitted gifts) or do a seamless raglan.- DoneI actually did two seamless raglans.
8. Finish Lorna’s laces socks. One is complete, the other has not been started.- Not even touched.  There is an orphan sock and yarn around here (somewhere.)
9. Shaped Denim Jacket by Debbie Bliss in the Celtic Knits Book. This would probably be a project for next fall, because I’m not quite there yet.- Not done.
10. Knit a Vest. – Not done.
11. Knit Air. – Not done.

2006 was the first year I did goals for knitting as a whole.  I want to do it again, but as you can clearly see above I changed my mind about a lot of the projects I picked out.  2007’s goals will be more broadly stated.
In 2006 I completed 12 projects.  In 2005 I completed 31.  Quite a difference there!  Hopefully I can pick up the pace a little bit.

2007 Knitting Goals:
1. Keep track of exactly how many hours I spend knitting each month.  (This could be scary!)
2. Keep track of how many yards I knit each month.
3. Knit 3 Sweaters.
4. Knit 6 pair of socks.
5. Knit one lace shawl.
6. Crochet at least one Amigurumi animal.
7. Knit a Vest. I WILL do this this year. I am determined. I just haven’t found the right pattern and want it to be fitted.
8. Finish the old Green Sweater.
9. Finish at least 20 Projects.
10. Start Christmas knitting in June.
