August 2019 Goals (and Blaugust kickoff!)

July felt like it was all socks, all the time for me, but in fact I did make a few other things too.

Completed in June:

Current WIPs:

  • Giant red blanket (of doom) – crochet
  • Gipsy Avenger – plastic model
  • Irish Snood – crochet
  • Hermione’s Everyday Socks – knitting

Big Goal Progress:

  1. Knit a pair of socks. Almost done!
  2. Finish all my current WIPs (as of July 2018). No new progress
  3. Use up some stash yarn. I used up some cotton stash making the dishcloth and coaster.
  4. Make at least 3 handmade gifts. Done!
  5. Improve my digital art skills. No progress

July Goals in review:

  • Finish the pair of socks. Nope. I’m at least 3/4 done though!
  • Pick a pattern for my pretty new yarn. I’m leaning toward these socks, or this shawl if I want to take a break from socks for a bit.
  • Work on my Snood. Nope. It’s just too hard to focus on all that warm fluffy wool when it’s 105 degrees outside.

August Goals:

After working on socks for so long I need to shake things up a bit. But I also need to finish the socks!

  • Finish my pair of socks. I’m on track to get this done soon if I keep up the pace. I’m not even bored of the project, I’m just eager to have the finished product and check off one of my Big Goals!
  • Crochet something. It might be working on the Snood, or starting something new, but it needs to be something. I just went a whole month with no crochet and I don’t want that to happen again.
  • Post every day. “Daily Creative Thing” has become more of a “most weekdays creative thing” due to work and travel. In honor of Blaugust, I want to try to get back to my daily schedule.

Only one more month of hot sweaty summer before we get to my favorite time of year!
