July 2022 Goals

We’re well and truly into summertime now. That means we’re inching closer to autumn, my favorite time of year. As long as I can survive the next few hot, humid months I’ll be rewarded with sweater weather!

Completed in June:

Current WIPs:

  • Granny Blanket – crochet
  • Napatree Tee – knit

June Goals in review:

  • Finish my Napatree Tee. Nope. I got too distracted with other things and didn’t even come close.
  • Knit a small fun project. Done! I am definitely counting the baby cardigan as a small fun project.
  • Fix my Fluff Nugget. Done! It was so intimidating cutting into a finished garment, but I’m so glad I did.

July Goals:

  • Get to the sleeve separation for my Napatree Tee. I definitely dreamed too big on this goal last month, so I’m setting a more manageable one for July. If I can get the lower body done I’ll be satisfied.
  • Finish the body of my Granny Blanket. There are only a few colors of yarn left for me to finish off, so if I keep up my current pace I should be able to start on the border by the end of the month.
  • Keep my hobby time relaxed. I have a lot of other things going on in my life this month, so for a change I am intentionally trying not to stretch myself with my hobbies. No big deadlines, no piles of gift knitting, just working on whatever I feel like in the moment.

2022 Big Goals:

How am I doing on my big goals for the year so far?

  1. Learn entrelac. Done!
  2. Finish my Wingspan. Done! I absolutely love it now that I changed the color!
  3. Fix my Fluff Nugget. Done! I am so excited to be able to wear this all winter.
  4. Knit a colorwork sweater. Done!
  5. End the year with less yarn than I started 2020 with (i.e. net decrease of ~2900 g). I had a setback this month because the first month of my yarn club came in, and I also bought a sweater’s quantity of yarn to make an xmas gift for my dad. I gained 820 g and used up 449 g for a net gain of 371 g of yarn this month.
Yarn In (g)Yarn Out (g)
Knit Picks700
Les Garçons120
Granny Blanket*352
Newborn Vertebrae51
Fluff Nugget 46
*For large projects, I count yarn as used when I cut to change colors or when I use up a full skein.

I’m still continuing my trend of fewer projects this month. I really enjoy the feeling of progress and the lack of anxiety that result. It gives me some time to relax before I suddenly remember all of the xmas gifts I want to make this Fall.
