Monday Goals (12-09-16)

Last Week's Goals:

Water | C

I am really not great at this... Does anyone have any tricks for drinking enough water??

Finish Something | A

I finished the hat and the shawl! I am really happy with how both of them turned out. And since my last blog post I started and finished another shawl (this one was for myself) 

Work Term Report | B

I wrote up 5 of the 8 blog posts during the week I had wanted to complete this task. Since then I finished the whole report and handed it in!

This Week's Goals:


This needs to happen. 8 cups a day is the goal.

No Cereal for Dinner

Andrew is away this week. I know that I will feel much better if I don't eat cereal for dinner every night but it's really hard to motivate yourself to cook for just one person. I'm setting the goal of not eating cereal for dinner any night this week while my husband is gone.

Finish the Socks

I started these socks in the middle of August (in preparation for Christmas) and I am just starting the second one. I want to get them off the needles this week so that I can start my September socks!

Monday Goals (29-08-16)

I really overachieved on two of my goals this week! It was only because once I got started on them I started having too much fun and didn't want to stop!

Last Week's Goals:

Half the X's | A++

I have three baby quilts to finish before October. I finished ALL the x's AND I put one quilt entirely together!! Guys this is amazing. I have fallen back in love with sewing

Water | C

Drinking 8 cups of water a day proved to be a challenge for me. I drank more water than usually, but I don't think I ever got to 8 cups in a day... yikes.

Spin a Bobbin | A++

Not only did I spin all the singles but I also plied about 90% of the singles I made. I am SO happy with how the yarn turned out. I ended up with over 400 yards of sport weight yarn so far.

This Week's Goals:


I really want to drink enough water. I know it's good for you and I want to make sure I am taking care of myself.

Finish Something

I feel like I haven't finished anything knitting wise in quite a while. I currently have socks, a shawl, a cardigan and a hat on the go. I want to finish one (maybe two) of these things this week. 

Work Term Report

I have put this off for far to long. My work term report for my last two coop terms is due in a few weeks. Normally I'm pretty good at working on this as I go, but this time I've been procrastinating.- I've started it but I want to get it done before school starts up again for me (on the 8th of September). I need to write 8 short blog posts about what I did each month of my work term. It's not super difficult but I just have to sit down and do it!

Monday Goals (22-08-16)

Last Week's Goals:

Finish August Socks | A

I finished my socks! The only thing I didn't do was block them. I don't normally block my socks but I think this pattern will require it

Divide the Sleeves | A+

I got past the sleeves! Most complicated part of the cardigan (in my opinion) is finished!

Try a new recipe | A

I tried a chicken and potato and cheese recipe. Andrew loved it, I was okay with it. I did really enjoy making it though. It's fun to try new things.

This Week's Goals:

Half the X's

I have three baby quilts to finish before October. I am finally at the sewing stage (aka the fun stage!). I am making a rag quilt so I have to sew an x on each of the 216 blocks. I want to get through half of the x's this week (so a diagonal line on each square)


This habit did not stick. I really need to drink enough water, I can totally tell the difference when I don't get enough. This week I want to drink 8 cups a day.

Spin a Bobbin

I've been spinning this alpaca merino since my birthday (April). It's time to power through and finish spinning (so that I can start knitting!). I want to spin the last little bit of the first 100 grams and all of the next 100 grams. That way I can ply them together next week!

Monday Goals (15-08-16)

I skipped doing last weeks goals, but I these are the grades for the goals from 2 weeks ago

Last Week's Goals:

Finish the Blanket | D

I didn't even touch this blanket... In my defense, it was really hot here this week and working on a blanket was just not going to happen. (Side note, I finished this blanket a couple days ago - see the picture above. I LOVE how it turned out!)

Crochet | B

I think I crocheted about 8 squares, which is better than nothing

Spin | A-

I picked up my drop spindle at least once every day!

This Week's Goals:

Finish August Socks

I will be doing a lot of car knitting this week, I'm hoping I can focus and get these socks finished!

Divide the Sleeves

I am pretty close to putting the sleeves of my Mom's cardigan on to stitch holders. I want to keep making progress on this and get past the sleeves this week.

Try a new recipe

I want to try something new for dinner this week. Maybe I'll find a winner!

Monday Goals (02-08-16)

Last Week's Goals:

Breakfast | A+

I ate breakfast every day! It was delicious.

Spin | A

I used my drop spindle at least 3 times and I plied those two bobbins of singles that were on my spinning wheel.

Get Rid of The Junk  |A-

I removed the junk from the back of the car... but I just put it in a pile in the apartment, So I didn't exactly get rid of it in the best way...

This Week's Goals:

Finish the Blanket

This blanket has been sitting on my needles for quite a while now. I want to get it done!


I need to keep working on crocheting those squares! I fell off the wagon. I want to do 2 squares each day (at least!)


I want to make more progress with my drop spindle this week. I have a project in mind for the yarn I am currently spinning so I want to start making faster progress! I want to spin at least once a day and hopefully be half done spinning the singles for this project by next week

Currently (27-07-16)

Knitting... I finished my first pair of rose city rollers and immediately cast on another pair using some scrap yarn. I am done the first sock.

No progress on my Chevron blanket. I am going to a cottage with my family this weekend so I am hoping I will be able to get lots of knitting and crafting time in.

I started the cardigan for my mom. It feels nice to have a sweater on my needles again. I am combining two patterns for this cardigan. Grace by Jane Richmond, (I am using this pattern for the main construction but omitting the lace panels at the top). The second pattern is Ruby Tuesday by Ewa Durasiewicz, I am using the design of the top from this pattern.

Spinning... I plied the singles that were on my wheel and I am planning on spinning with my drop spindle this weekend.

Crocheting... I'm hoping to get several squares done this weekend.

Reading... I am half way done  Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix!

What are you currently up to?

Monday Goals (25-07-16)

Last Week's Goals:

Take pictures | C

I used my camera twice, which is better than nothing!

1 Chapter a Day & Crochet 2 Squares | B

1 chapter a day happened really easily this week. Crocheting, not so much. I'm just not super motivated at the moment. 

Clean out the Fridge | A+

I cleaned it out and filled it with yummy fruits and veggies. 

This Week's Goals:


I am really bad at eating breakfast in the morning. This week I want to try to redevelop that habit


I have two bobbins full of singles to be plied on my spinning wheel. I want to get this done this week. I also want to use my drop spindle a bit more. Let's say more than twice this week.

Get Rid of The Junk

I have so much stuff in the back of my car. I need it to be mostly clean for our trip to the cottage this weekend. I want to deal will the junk in the trunk so that it will be more usable.
