November Goals

It's the beginning of a new month and I always feel like it's a clean slate for my knitting and spinning projects. Each month I feel that I'm going to knit/spin that little bit faster and get more accomplished than I did last month. Yet, the time flies by and before you know it I've knit a few rows here and there on various projects but haven't really got anywhere!  

Last month I got distracted by the beautiful Curious Collective Shawl and cast on a new sock. This month our shipping has just been unpacked and I'm wondering what other new shiny thing(s) I can cast on! It's funny though because I'm really only knitting things for me at the moment so it doesn't matter how long those things take, but I feel bad for letting things sit without being worked on. Anybody else feel the same?

So here are a couple of goals for this month:

1. Pick up my cardigan and do something with it! Anything! Perhaps even knit on it! 
2. Spin some of a WIP. 
3. Knit a bit more of a sock. 
4. Try not to distracted by all of the things!
5. Blog as much as possible during November. 

Do you have some goals for this month? Feel free to share them here!

  1. I am taking a spinning course and trying to spin everyday, but somedays knitting gets the best of me, and some days it is following ALL the blogs. I do have to get a present done for an early christmas party on December first - and for some odd reason cross stitch is calling me.

    1. Which spinning course are you taking? I agree that sometimes knitting calls to me more than spinning, or vice versa. I've not tried cross stitch and am sometimes tempted but think I have enough to do in my hobby time already! I hope you get your gift knitting done!

  2. I totally get your feeling of having things started, knitting them for yourself and feeling a little bad having things just sit there :) I want to cast on a sweater or two for the NaKniSweMo (National Knit a Sweater in a Month) but I'm really, really trying to do other things and finish things that are started :) I love that you set goals! You can do it!!

    1. I'll have to check out if you cast your sweaters on! Good luck if you do! I don't always keep up with my goals but I feel better about setting them!
