Goals 2011

I can scarcely believe I’m doing this again already. This list is going to look an awful lot like the 2010 list, as last year wasn’t exactly conducive to marking off permanent goals. What a fantasy to think I could end 2011 with all this accomplished! I still contend it’s good for me to write my priorities somewhere to help maintain focus – assuming there’s time available to worry about them. 😉

Knit/Spin/Weave Goals:

  1. Publish at least 4 knitting patterns, including another KAL
  2. Complete Level 1 of the Olds College Master Spinner Program
  3. Knit a project from wool I’ve cleaned and spun, using a pattern I’ve designed
  4. Make another 2 pairs of handknit socks for myself and 2 pairs on my CSM. Barber Pole Socks – Aug 4
  5. Finish at least 3 of the projects currently languishing in my WIP/UFO tubs – at least one item started before July 1, 2009, and the other two any time before July 1, 2010. Jade Garden – Feb 18, Noro Airfare Scarf – Mar 19,
  6. Knit something tiny – size 4/0 needles or smaller – probably something for my future miniature yarn shop
  7. Create at least one handwoven project – Navajo, Inkle, or ? Nechama Shawl on triloom Apr. 14
  8. Knit Burridge Lake Aran Afghan
  9. Learn Portuguese style knitting
  10. Explore double knitting to the point of being entirely comfortable doing it.

Other Creative Goals:

  1. Finish at least one of the current remodeling projects – nook, laundry, sewing room, or kitchen
  2. Finish Reba – bisque porcelain doll
  3. Move one of my dolls from hospital patient status to display status – maybe Aaron, so he can show off his adorable knitted romper?
  4. Finish the interior and/or exterior of Friendship Cabin, a Real Good Toys Adirondack Cabin that we started several years ago, but which has languished untouched since sometime before the beginning of 2009
  5. Finish my Gail Wilson Hitty, which was started with enthusiasm during the online class, worked on for three nights, and now has the rest of the girls giving me “the look” for not getting their sister done
  6. Find the stories I started writing and complete at least one rough draft
  7. Finish a Hitty carving project
  8. Finish my Minstrel spinning wheel
  9. Create a photo book and a calendar
  10. Finish either a quilt or cross stitch UFO

Decluttering/Organizational Goals:

  1. Catalog DVD library and view those I’ve not watched
  2. Stash all my yarn on Ravelry – which will get done one of these years if I keep at it!
  3. Organize my computer photos, then print and label as I think necessary (okay, yes, multi-year!)
  4. Restock and reopen my internet stores, thus moving stuff, boxes, and packing material out
  5. Get loose knitting patterns into a usable system
  6. Have all books properly shelved. No stacks, floor rows, or double shelves.
  7. Clean out one of my email accounts, then maintain it
  8. Build and implement one of my storage solution plans
  9. Get my entire bathroom “wonderful” – tougher than it sounds!
  10. Scavenge all files off old PDA before I lose them

Personal Goals:

  1. End the year at least 25 pounds lighter than I started it
  2. Read 100 books, one being The Holy Bible
  3. End the year debt free – both money and promises made
  4. Go somewhere new – state or country
  5. Blog at least once each week
  6. Solidly memorize at least one  scripture verses each month
  7. Get the treadmill inside, then start using it regularly
  8. Spend time at least once each week working on a foreign language
  9. Spend at least a few minutes every week making music
  10. Implement a regular savings plan of any amount, but with real earning potentialSet up auto-invest deposit 1/5/11
