So, I recently discovered the wonderful community of Ravelry. Upon further investigation of the community I came across a wonderful group and decided to join it.
Come Blog-Along combines two of my favourite activities. The two activities that, unless I am accountable, I will actually let slide for months on end. Blogging and crocheting.
I go through spurts with my crocheting. Some weeks I will do nothing but crochet. Then my projects will sit for a couple months before I look a them again. Now with this group I have made myself accountable to not only Blogging on a regular basis, but also to starting and completing my projects.
So here are my goals for the next year:
I would like to finish all (most) my WIPs listed in my previous entry.
1. Starflake Blanket for Boyfriend
2. Bobble Blanket for colleagues baby
3. Blanket for New Baby
4. Monkey for New Baby
5. Blanket for my Baby
6. Blanket for Kid
7. Love Hook Crochet Hook organizer
8. The T-shirt that I got frustrated with months ago and gave up on
9. I would then like to make a shawl or shrug for myself. Pattern pending .
10. I have always wanted to have a homemade pillow, so now is as good a time as any to make one.
Another goal that I have for myself includes participating in at least two swaps.
My July goals include: Bobble Blanket; Crochet Hook Organizer, participate in one swap
As I am new at this whole Blog Along/ Crochet Along, I think that I am to leave this list as is for now. In actuality, my goal is to get at least the first 7 of these projects complete by Christmas time, leaving 7 months to finish the last two. But at least this way, I leave room for Life to happen, as we all know it will. Maybe next year, I will be more organized and have a book of patterns to work through.
Disorganized as it may look, I am VERY excited to participate this year 🙂
