Aims and Goals

I’ve decided to try and finish the socks on the my needles this month. I have 3 and currently they look like this:

3 Socks on the Needles

The orange socks are my Rick socks.
The purple and black are my Gothic Anastasia Delight socks.
The grey pair are my Bootiful socks (aka Rhiannon Socks.)

It might be a bit amibitious as I’ll need to finish a sock every 4.3 days but it’s doable and by rotating which pair I’m working on I’ll stave off Second Sock Syndrome. I may make it even more doable by frogging the Rhiannon socks. It turns out the yarn (Zettl Sockenwolle Treviso) is not superwash like it says on the label and apparently felts easily. I don’t mind have a pair of handwash socks, but if they’re going to felt quickly with normal wear then I’d rather make socks that aren’t as time consuming and pretty as Rhiannon. I’ll see how a small swatch fairs and let you know.

I’ve also been reassessing my New Years Resolutions. I set myself Eight Knitting Resolutions which works out to two every three months, so I’ve picked out two to finish by the end of March:

1. Write up and publish a pattern for sale. Also, spend more time writing up patterns in general.
I’ve spent more time writing up patterns. I’ve got a pattern test knitted and almost ready for release. So I think I will be able to tick this one off by the end of March.

3. Blog regularly(ish).
There’s been a couple of ‘ish’ spots since January but on the whole I think I’ve already achieved this one. :)
