November Goals

November is here!  Time to reflect on the last month’s goals and plan November.

Reflecting on October

Well, a new part-time job has certainly changed the available crafting time.  I wasn’t able to complete all the projects I had planned, but I finished a few and made progress on others.

Finished — Gail/Nightsong shawl, another pair of Kids’ Mitts, crochet coffee cup coaster (say that 3 times fast) and two books for Fall Into Reading.
Progress Made — Meander afghan, one mitt of the third pair, Cauchy socks, about half way through the third book.
Stitching — lamb ornament is about 1/3 completed

November Goals

1.  Remember to be thankful and give thanks.  I am so blessed!
2.  Be realistic!
  • The holidays are fast approaching and there’s no reason to set goals that are doomed from the start.
  • Starting new projects when there are already plenty of things begging for attention is a recipe for frustration.
  • Re-evaluate some of the WIPs.  If they’ve been stuck away in the baskets this long, are they really projects that are still needed or wanted?

That being said . . . here are projects that need to receive some attention this month.  Hopefully, there will be some finished objects too.

  • Knitting — February Lady sweater, Cobblestone Pullover, Meander Afghan, Cauchy socks, mittens, two Christmas surprises.  All are going to get some attention this month or put away ’til after Christmas.
  • Fall Into Reading Challenge — finished Home to Big Stone Gap, good progress on a fourth book
  • Stitching — finish lamb ornament, time to think of a Christmas ornament or two

Do you make plans and set goals each month?  Have you started your Christmas knitting?  What’s on your To-Do List?  I’d love to hear about it.
