December 2020 Goals

November seemed to be the month of way too many projects. It was also the month of getting my crochet mojo back, which felt really nice. I’m enjoying having a few big crochet projects to balance my pile of knitting.

Completed in November:

Current WIPs:

  • Wingspan – knit
  • Ripple Lapghan – Tunisian crochet
  • Dad Socks – knit
  • Hexagon Blanket – crochet
  • Holiday Throw – crochet

November Goals in review:

  • Finish two xmas gift crafts – Yep! I finished two puffin hats but one does not fit so it probably doesn’t count. I also finished another gift hat that needs to go out in the mail soon.
  • Finish the second set of feathers on my Wingspan – Nope! I’m guessing that my Wingspan is going to be put on hold until after xmas. I’ve still got too much holiday crafting I want to do.
  • Make at least 30 hexagons for my blanket – Yep! I’ve got more than 60 hexagons done now. I think I need a minimum of around 110 for a small throw or 250 for a full sized one, so there’s still lots of crocheting to do.

December Goals:

  • Make a dozen Christmas balls. They just look so fun! I want at least a few for our tree, and if I make enough I can give them as gifts.
  • Finish all my holiday gift crafting in time. This one is pretty self-explanatory, and is the only actual hard deadline.
  • Use up at least 1000 g of yarn. I don’t think there’s any hope of meeting my big goal of ending the year with less yarn than I started with, but I can at least try to put a dent in it.

2020 Big Goals Progress:

  1. Learn to knit brioche. No progress
  2. Make at least one “big” project. Done!
  3. Either finish or get rid of any WIPs that carried over from last year. Done!
  4. Learn a new creative skill. Done!
  5. End the year with less yarn than I started with. The good news this month is that I used up over 2200 g of yarn with all the crochet I was doing. The bad news is that I bought almost 4000 g of yarn to make xmas gifts and am now about 1600 g in the hole for the year.

I can hardly believe we’ve nearly reached the end of this year. This year I am nervous about how the holidays will go, because of covid and because it is the first year without Mom. But, I am also excited to snuggle up with my cats and make some handcrafted warm fuzzy goodness.
