Keeping Track - April 2008

You know, I really do like this goals business. I'm not a very good do-er - you know how some people set their minds to something and they do it, with no hassle and no fuss. I'm not one of those people (unfortunately - I do admire them greatly!). So the list of goals really helps. It gives me something to aim for, and is a reminder of things I need to, or would like to, get done. And it's working! I've now caught up on everything, except one (my study...urk). And best of all, I feel really good about it. This finishing thing is great!

So I've put my May goals up - I'm not sure whether I've got the balance right - I might even need to add some!

And I've had a good month on the Stash Honesty front as well (primarily thanks to giving away some stash and also bulky knits - fast and furious! There'll be something to report on this probably next week!)

So for April:
In: 12 x 50g balls - including my first Noro and my eBay discontinued yarn purchase
Out: 22 x 50g balls - yay! my first month where I actually reduced my stash! 2 x 50g balls of special yarn for Bells, 2 x 100g balls of special yarn for Kim, 2 x 50g balls of special yarn for Miss J, and the rest I actually knitted up! Woo hoo!

So, this month, I'm -10 x 50g balls! And year to date - well, not great, but better! +22.75 x 50g balls! Yay!

nice one. You're my hero on this stuff. I aim to be as good as you - and I failed this month. A certain pi shawl sucked up much of my time.

Still loving the tally system.

You are so organized! I wish I could do that with my knitting, but right now, it's just out of the question.

I love this idea! I should make my own list. I guess I'll have to go find a pen, first...
