Crafty goals



Last week I actually did great on the knitting goals, if I say so myself (ah, the benefits of aiming low!). On the sewing, not so much (not at all, actually). I did (partly) clean up and organize the entry room though and I have now a table ready to sew on. So who knows what will happen next week?

Last week's list:

Knitting:

✔ work on green cowl (actually finished it! - show & tell next week)
✔ maybe start a beret for my mother (started one, finished it - turns out to be wearable, but rather tight, so I started another one - sneak peek in pictures above)

Sewing:
X purse for daily use
X quilt (or maybe start small and make a table runner?)
X drawstring bags to use in my suitcase while traveling (I love the packing cubes like these that I see all over the internet and of course I could either order them or try to make them, but I think simple drawstring bags could help with the packing chaos too, so I'm trying that first).

This week's list

 Knitting:

- finish second beret
- knit some of these slippers (the pattern is no longer online, but I have it written down in my notebook) to keep my feet warm when we're in Holland
- decide if I could make more of them as gifts (maybe better than hats?)
- use up the rest of the Christmas yarn (granny square to use as decoration on the table?)

Sewing:

The fact that I'm not sewing doesn't mean I'm not thinking about the things I want to do. I keep adding to that list... Oh well, we'll see.

- hem that plaid cotton I bought to use as a tablecloth
- make placemats (the ones we're using are stained and not washable - not my smartest buy)
- purse for daily use
- quilt (or maybe start small and make a table runner?)
- drawstring bags to use in my suitcase while traveling (I love the packing cubes like these that I see all over the internet and of course I could either order them or try to make them, but I think simple drawstring bags could help with the packing chaos too, so I'm trying that first).

I'm hoping for a productive, creative weekend, though there's also this other list of things I need to do...
Wishing you all a great one too!

  1. Thinking about sewing is half the battle! I am thinking all the time about future knitting projects and narrowing down what exactly I want to knit and when. Love your photo :)

    1. Thanks! Yes, that's the reason I post these lists. I find it helps to decide what I really want to do when I do have time to knit or sew.

  2. You will find time for the sewing, just focus on what you can now, time will come.

    1. Oh, I know. It's mostly fun to make this lists, though sometimes it's a little bit frustrating that another week had come and gone without any sewing, but I do like dreaming about the things I could make.
