First of all I declared 2016 as The Year Of The Finisher. My year was going to be about completing treasures.
Goal #1 was to organize and keep organized the Stash Studio. Well, I did half of that. I organized but did not keep it organized. I think I may consciously love to "work on" the Stash Studio so I may subconsciously let it get out of hand so I can feel good about organizing again.
Needless to say, I didn't achieve Goal #2, bringing my knitting buddies to the Stash Studio to knit. Because I'm such a slacker, Linda won't be able to come when I do get around to be the knitting hostess. It won't be the same without her.
Goal #3 was to finish 2 things that I've started. I can check that off many times over. Last January at the Coastal Cottage I finished this. . .
Goal #4 was to finish 2 things I have yarn and a pattern for. I get a great big check for this. . .
Goal #5 was to complete 2 projects from my UDY (undesignated yarn) stash. If the Tribute to Breast Cancer Survivors Chairity Auction chair and Lenawee County Historical Museum Christmas Tree don't kick that goal over the moon, I don't know what does.
Goal #7 was to not give up on Knit The Sky.
Goal #8 was to find a new LYS. I discovered the adorable The Yarn Shop in Glenn Arbor, MI. But I lost Yarn Quest in Traverse City which was destroyed by a car driving through it. Thinking about it still makes me cry. I also found Noble Knits a great online yarn shop. They send me daily email about sale yarn. I really try to resist but some days I just can't. I can check this goal off as complete.
Goal #10 was to learn Brioche. I did it! I took a glass at my new favorite, LYS Spun in Ann Arbor. It was great. I could have learned it from a book or YouTube video but it wouldn't have been nearly as much fun.
It feels so good to write goals down and review them. It's like making your list and checking it twice. I encourage you to set goals, write them down then bask in the glory of accomplishment next year.
I have set some amazing goals this year which I will share with you next time. My best wishes to you for a Fabulous Year of Fiber and Fun.
