Knock, knock- is this thing still on?

So it appears I have been MIA on this blog for a while. Life has been good. Actually it’s been great! My mental health has been fairly stable, I have been excelling at uni still and now I am working as an AIN at the hospital which I just love. I get to sit with high acuity patients who need someone with them to ensure their safety. One of the joys of this is I get to knit (or spindle spin) when I am on shift so I can kill two proverbial birds…

I set some craftolusions last December and thought I should check in on them…

Finish or frog 10 current WIPs

Hmmm… I believe I am sitting at 8- 4 frogged and 4 finished. I hope to finish two more before the end of the year!

Have a negative stash balance at the end of 2016 (more used than purchased!)

I started a spreadsheet for this and I think I am in front. Well I like to tell myself I am, but I think I would be lying! I have not spun a lot so my fibre stash is really in the black, and yarn is probably about 60/40…

Spin and knit some 3 ply socks for me

Not even started… This may be a 2017 craftolusion, but never say never!

12 self-striping projects completed (can include current WIPs)

I am at 9. Need to cast on and finish some socks this month!

Knit a Baa-ble hat

Done! It even took out second prize at the Cairns Show!

Knit 6 projects out of handspun

That is sitting at two. I want to cast on a couple more…

1 washcloth a month for Women’s Shelter (ABC Christmas appeal)

This hasn’t gotten off the ground. I still want to knit some…

Podcast every fortnight

I thought long and hard about this one. I don’t have the time or energy to do this. There are plenty of amazing podcasts out there and I don’t think I will be adding to them.


So with 2 and a bit months to go I should reach a goal or two… And to be honest, I am not worried that I have not met all these goals and probably won’t. That to me is a huge change of mindset!
