December 2021 Goals

I’m not sure exactly how it got to be December already, but at least I’m not frantically trying to finish making half a dozen gifts this year.

Completed in November:

Current WIPs:

  • Wingspan – knit
  • Hexagon Blanket – crochet

November Goals in review:

  • Finish all my planned gift knits for the year. Done!
  • Finish my Heel Toe Do Si Do Socks. Done! (I finished them last night!)
  • Finish joining the current round of hexes for my afghan. Done!

December Goals:

  • Make a pair of xmas socks. I have some great xmas yarn from the same dyer that made my Halloween yarn and I can’t wait to knit it up.
  • Start a sweater. I have at least 2 sweaters planned and already have the yarn for them. I want to start one of them this month, and maybe work on it during my holiday time off.
  • Finish my Hex Blanket. I’m so close now, and it would be great to get it done in time to meet my Big Goal for the year.

2021 Big Goals Progress

  1. Knit a sweater. Done!
  2. Complete a blanket. Lots of hex blanket progress this month.
  3. Either finish or get rid of any WIPs that carried over from last year. The hex blanket is getting closer and closer to the finish line.
  4. Make a return to digital art. No progress.
  5. End the year with less yarn than I started 2020 with (i.e. use up 1495 g). I gained 240g of yarn in November, and used up 418g of yarn on projects. That’s the first time I’ve had a net decrease in yarn since May!
Yarn In (g)Yarn Out (g)
Holly Press Fibers (2 skeins + 2 minis)240
Halloween Socks73
Bricks Hat86
Winter Seaside Socks69
Half Washcloth12
Hex Blanket128
Heel Toe Do Si Do Socks50
*For large projects, I count yarn as used when I cut to change colors or when I use up a full skein.

I’m almost out of time to meet my goals for the year. Do I buckle down and try to finish some things, or do I keep knitting what feels most exciting in the moment? We’ll see what this next month brings.

  1. I enjoy seeing your goals. It gives me ideas. I too have been doing the yarn in/yarn out this year and it looks like I’ll end the year net down which is fantastic for me. Your socks look great. Are they DK? Congrats on meeting almost all of your goals.
