Quarterly Update

Time seems to be flying, and plans are changing, but I’m still as usual mindful of my goals in general and am a bit surprised to see that I have been making progress even if it doesn’t always feel like I am giving enough time to my crafting life.


But general life is also changing so i’m adding to the goals.  I’m moving this summer, so that’s a big thing that has to be planned and organized.  Especially as a crafter.  There are a lot of things to pack and move. Have I mentioned I have a lot of books? I mean a lot of books.


Knitting Goals

1. Year of the Sweater- One Sweater every two months *finger crossed*  – Royale started body is about 3″ right now. 

2. A pair of socks – A girl can dream –I have joined the box of sox kal in a hope for additional motivation. 

Spinning Goals

1. Learn supported spindling
2. Get a supported Spindle and bowl 

3. Spinning down the fiber stash or at least spin more than I take in.   Well I added a little to the stash at VKL but have quite a few spindles in progress so maybe? I haven’t finished anything yet  but have five or six projects going right now.  So that would be staying on track sorta.
