Here’s a more detailed update on how my goals have been going. Again, these are my goals for the year
1. Buy more wool
2. Use more wool
3. Make more stuff to sell
4. Use the money from selling to get a new phone and washing machine
5. Use my library of pattens/books instead of buying more or finding more I want to buy
6. Use my stash of acrylic instead of buying more
I’ve been doing great with most of them. Some colors of my acrylic stash are getting pretty low, and I have to keep reminding myself that that’s okay. I want the acrylic stash to shrink so that I can have more room for wool. My plan is to not buy acrylic unless I need it to make stuff to sell (nyan cat scarves, for example, just aren’t economically smart to make in wool; but I don’t want to buy more of those colors until I’m nearly out of what I have).
I’ve kinda been doing horribly with #5, though. This year I’ve added a whole other page to my Ravelry library… BUT, I have only spent $11.50 on knitting & crochet patterns (well, for myself, that is. If I include RAKs to other people, it’s a little higher). I just went and added that up… which I was kind of avoiding doing because I thought it would be much higher with all the patterns I have gotten. But that’s really quite reasonable! I guess most of the patterns I’ve added have been free with a coupon code, because that’s apparently all the rage on Rav this year. So I would say I was doing okay with that… IF I was actually knitting/crocheting anything from them! -.-; I feel like I haven’t gotten anything done in the past month, even though my etsy shop proves that I have.
I also haven’t sold much, so #4 isn’t going anywhere.
Time is flying buy. Is it really the 11th when I made my last post on the 4th? That KAL starts tomorrow. And I haven’t swatched yet >.< I need to do that tonight!!
