March 2023 Goals

February was a good cozy crafting month. And I am getting better about letting go of projects that aren’t making me happy!

Completed in February:

Current WIPs:

  • Twists & Turns – knit
  • Green Static Socks – knit
  • Funfetti – knit


  • Highway Cowl – knit

February Goals in review:

  • Finish my Countdown Cardi. Done! This project was a joy and I’m already debating whether to make another one.
  • Start a new project using advent minis. Done! I started a Funfetti shawl over the weekend that you’ll get to see tomorrow.
  • Brainstorm some projects to use up some of my bulky and larger weight yarn. Done. My experience with the Sea Lettuce Shawl proved to me that if I don’t love a yarn but still want to use it, I should pick a crochet project. So I plan to start a simple crochet blanket soon.

March Goals:

  • Start a crochet blanket. There’s still some time before the weather gets too hot to work on blankets. I want to make sure I at least get one started before summer hits.
  • Choose a cabled sweater pattern. This project will meet one of my big goals for the year. I don’t know if I will actually get started this month, but I do at least want to choose a pattern and purchase any yarn I need for it.
  • Make one small item. I’ve been focusing on larger projects lately, which is kinda nice. But there’s nothing like the feeling of starting and finishing a small project in a day or two.

2023 Big Goals progress:

  1. Knit a cabled sweater. No progress.
  2. Try yarn dyeing from scratch. No progress.
  3. Use up my advent minis. I used up almost all of my 2022 advent minis in my Countdown Cardi, and started a new project with advent minis too.
  4. Meet some local yarny friends. No progress.
  5. Maintain net zero yarn for the year. I was weak and put in an order for a 3 month sock yarn club this month. I’m counting it all as gained this month but the yarn will come in 3 monthly installments starting in March. I did use up 493g this month for a net of 133g used. I used up more than I purchased this month so I’m calling it good.

Green Static Socks10
*For large projects, I count yarn as used when I cut to change colors or when I use up a full skein.

I didn’t finish a lot of things in February but I did finish two beautiful projects. I am very happy with all of my projects!
