The first thing you might notice is that I am not writing this on Thursday. That’s because I had other things to say then…
In spite of posting my craft goals update a few days late, I have been relatively active this week.
Personal crafting goals
4. Make two projects from (or inspired by) Toe-Up 2-at-a-Time Socks.
This week, I mailed out my skein for the Blog Hub yarn swap project adventure. I imagined this as part of my plan to destash, but then I remembered that I would receive yarn from someone else (d’oh!). A beautiful skein of Araucania sock yarn arrived from Lou at Knitted a few days back. I plan to use this yarn for one of the patterns in the book. Ok, ok, that doesn’t seem like much progress. But that is because you haven’t seen my yarn stash. It is probably 90% worsted/medium/aran weight yarn. So having a sock yarn that I love on hand is a big deal!
Professional crafting goals
3. Publish at least five patterns.
I’m continuing to work on a top secret pattern which should be published this fall.
4. Blog at least twice a week.
Since my last update, I’ve posted six times (including this post). Yay!
5. Teach in at least two conferences/festivals.
- Introduction to Tunisian Crochet (Saturday, 9/17, 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.)
- Reversible Crochet Hats (Saturday, 9/17, 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. OR Sunday, 9/18, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.).
If you are in the NY Finger Lakes region in mid-September, stop by and check out my classes (and the rest of the festival)! You can find out more details about registration on the workshop page of the festival website.
Now I’ll need to get started on some fun samples to bring with me to class.
The weather has been really rainy for the last few days, so I downsized to the bag which fits entirely underneath my umbrella. As a result, my baby blanket-in-progress was left at home and the Guide, which is portable, has become my subway reading. I just arrived at Chapter 7 and am enjoying the reading and learning a lot. (Do I smell a book review in the near future???)
Ok, now I’ve ‘fessed up on my progress. What are your craft-telated goals and how are you working towards them?
