2008 Goals

So I'm not usually big about setting goals for myself. Especially knit related ones. But this year I've decided that there are things I want to do and if I say them aloud they are more likely to happen.

first up is the "socks from stash" group I joined. Its a kal blog. One pair of socks a month from stash yarn. So first goal is at least 12 pair of socks. Most likely I'll knit more than 12. I started to set my goal at 2 pair a month. But there are other things I want to knit and I dont want to get stressed out with my goals. So at least one pair even tho more are possible and likely.

Next up is lace. I did successfully fix the mistake in the lace I'm working on. But because lace takes a lot more concentration and is impossible to knit around Nathan my lace goal is not very high. I want to complete 3 lace shawl/stoles this year. Big (or well decent sized) ones. One will be the one currently on needles. Another will be Amie's wedding lace. The third I've not picked yet but I have plenty of stashed lace yarn and ideas. I might as for help on deciding this later. This goal may even be small by my standards but since I've yet to actually complete a lace project I dont want to set my goal so high that I'm destined to fail. So 3 it is.

I MUST complete Rogue this year. I have half a hood and 2 sleeves to knit. So this is possible. I've just lost my rogue mojo. I've had this pattern for like 2 years and the yarn for forever. I must have this sweater off my needles and in wearable form.

There are other goals I have in mind but these are the main ones for right now. Might not sound like much. But I have big plans for knitting in 08. This is just the beginning.

Good For You Jessica!!
They sound like some pretty good goals. I have also been contemplating some knitting goals... but as it turns out I am still pushing myself to finish the few last minute things I started in the final "moments" of 07' (Dad's gloves, a pair for Rich, Rick's sweater, and a pair of socks I started for me).
So I guess my goal is to get those all FO'd before setting any further goals.
How does that sound?? :)
