August 2022 Goals

Everything is way too hot but I’m still over here knitting every day. That’s dedication to the hobby.

Completed in July:

  • None?! This might be a first since I started doing monthly updates!

Current WIPs:

  • Granny Blanket – crochet
  • Napatree Tee – knit
  • Very Green Socks – knit

July Goals in review:

  • Get to the sleeve separation for my Napatree Tee. Done! In fact I finished the entire body of the garment!
  • Finish the body of my Granny Blanket. Done! I just need to finish the border now.
  • Keep my hobby time relaxed. Done! I still did some crafting every day but I did it in a more relaxed way with no pressure to finish anything.

August Goals:

  • Start a sweater for my dad. This will (hopefully) be his big xmas gift this year. I’ve never knit a garment for anyone but myself so this will be an adventure, especially with the holiday deadline.
  • Finish my Napatree Tee. This project is getting pretty close to the finish line and I’d like to get it done before I start on my dad’s sweater if I can.
  • Use up some kitchen cotton. I have a ton of it laying around and it has been a couple months since I’ve used any. Hats, bags, or dishcloths are all on the table for using up some of this stash.

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!
  3. Fix my Fluff Nugget. Done!
  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 didn’t use a ton of yarn this month but I did at least offset what came in from my monthly club. I gained 120 g and used up 143 g for a net use of 23 g of yarn this month.
Yarn In (g)Yarn Out (g)
Les Gar├žons120
Granny Blanket*143
*For large projects, I count yarn as used when I cut to change colors or when I use up a full skein.

We are now in prime holiday knit planning time. I know I have one big project I want to make, but I intend to spend some time thinking about other ideas this month too. I don’t want to get caught off guard with a great idea when it is too late to finish in time.
