February 2019 Craft Goals

January 2019

Hey all! it has been one busy month. I rung in the new year with a sinus and respiratory infection that hung on for a while. I managed to keep a slow and steady pace while working on my goal list for the month. I knit 8 dishcloths, 3 hats, 2 Christmas ornaments, 1 shawl,… Continue reading January 2019



My craft area is always a mess even with my previous organization attempts. My yarn was also hard to find in the huge bins without dumping the whole bin out on the floor. Part of my problem is that I never throw away anything that can be repurposed as a craft supply. I also never… Continue reading reorganization

2019 Craft Goals (Less is More)

In past years I have made huge project goal lists. I've had years where I have been successful and years where I have been overwhelmed and unsuccessful. This year I am changing my motives. I plan to knit a donation hat in lieu of a gift for each person in my Christmas/Birthday list. I also… Continue reading 2019 Craft Goals (Less is More)

I really like how this hat turned out but after four of them it's time for a new color… Continue reading April Donation Hats

Organizational Success
