2009 Summer Knitting Goals Contest

Totally random pic, simply because it made me laugh!
It's that time of year again. While warmer temperatures have already moved in, the official start of Summer 2009 is just around the corner, and that can only mean one thing, at least in the tiny world that revolves around me.

It's time to set some summer goals, more specifically, knitting goals.

You may remember some lofty goals from previous years. I'm a list maker. I'm lost without a list. I forget things like buns for the burgers without a list. I'm also a goal setter. I believe in putting a little pressure on myself, for without it I would end up spending most of every day with a good book, magazine, or movie, eating pizza- with paper plates.

New Year's resolutions aren't good enough for me. They're great for a week or two, but I need something more, like quarterly progress reports, so I set quarterly goals, even monthly and weekly at times, and I'm not just talking about knitting. Research has shown that people who make goals tend to be more productive and more successful, and those that actually write them down are even more so. I don't accomplish even half of what I set out to do, but with my slightly thought out goals I accomplish more than I ever would without them.

Here's where the fun comes in- incentives, it's like a Tupperware party, except you don't have to sell anything. You don't even have to achieve your goals, just set some, even one. This annual contest is specifically about summer knitting goals -what to you hope to knit by summer's end?- but don't let that limit you, feel free to add goals in any area of life that needs a little more intentional living.

I'm working on a few more goodies to add to the packages, but here's what we're starting off with-

Package #3-
Package #1-
Package #1-
One of my goals (hehe) is to make the packages bigger and better each year! I'm having fun thinking of things to add...

I'm working on my list (always!) and will post it early next week. Now it's your turn. Set a goal (or 2 or 3), post a list (with a link back here), leave a comment, then on to the knitting, and the living, one day at a time, one moment at a time. Enjoy it.

Happy knitting-
ali

***Extra details- leave a comment by midnight June 21st, the first day of summer. Each comment will get a number and I'll use a random number generator to pick the winners. If your number comes up, I'll head to your blog and check for your goals list, if I can't find one, I'll go to the next number (so don't forget to post!)... If you're blogless, what is wrong with you?! Totally kidding! I guess you'll just have to leave a list here in the comments, no biggee, that'll work.

Well, I won't use the Planned Knitting list I already have on my blog, cause it's about 30+ projects long! For summer's end I want to Finish at least 1 long standing UFO and 1 shawl per month of summer. So, 3 shawls and 1 to be determined UFO. I won't use the Kiri shawl UFO as one of the shawls though, that would be fudging! Also good in summer, Fudgecicles!! Hmm, wonder if I have any in the freezer?

My goal is to finish 6 knitted lap "quilts" to give to a nursing home this Christmas. I have 3 done but now have to find an edging that will work for men and women. I guess the other part of this goal is to learn to crochet with proper tension. Wish me luck!!

My goals are:
-finish 3 matching crocheted headbands by June 27 (off to Cuba with 3 little girls that will look so cute on the beach together with their big flowered headbands!)
-finish 3 UFO's for my daughter! a twirly skirt, a tunic, a lace t-shirt
-co-knit a sweater with my co-worker (i'm knitting, she's watching and learning)
-start and finish the Diamond Fanatsy Shawl which I have started and frogged 3 times! (oh I'll get you right if it's the last thing I do!!)
I like this list thing. I've got to get knitting!

I have three baby projects I'm working on as gifts. Can't say what they are, because I believe the recipients may read your blog. :D

I also plan to make a pair of longies for Bronwyn before fall/winter gets here.

A fair isle baby hat, some sheep in sheep's clothing.... and the rest of my plans are crochet plans.

I'm a list-writer too - of course, when you forget the list (like I did today at the grocery store) it doesn't help too much :)

Oh, I've added "starting my own blog" onto my list of things to accomplish....but it's too far down the list for it to actually happen, it seems!!
My summer knitting goal is to seam and finish the 5 UFOs in my baskets. Baby sweater, two summer knits for me, a shawl that's almost done, and a cardi I lost interest in....I'm not allowing myself to start ANYTHING till this list is finished!!!
we'll see how this goes........

2) Crochet a kippah for my student's Bar-Mitzvah (already have the supplies!)
3) Crochet a rug from my old torn bedsheet
4) Starting to card all of my yarn-y scraps back into spinnable fiber
5) Buy a wide-brimmed hat (unusually hard to find) so I can be out in the sun more

My summer goals are to knit my cousin's wedding afghan and to complete a summer weight top. In my non-knitting life, my goal is to begin making lifestyle changes to get my acid reflux under control, and to start saving now that my debt is paid off!

Blogger Judi A. said...

Good idea to make a written list of knitting goals. I have one in my head, but tend to skip over #1 because I know it is going to take a lot of time and effort. Making the itty-bitty hats Ribbons hat for the swap has to be #1, but after that I must totally undo the back of a little boy's sweater :-( and start the sweater completely over in a larger size. The stitch pattern takes time and concentration (especially at first) so that may be all I'll accomplish this summer, but that would make me very happy!

I do not have a blog, but please do include me in your giveaway.

We gave up our car and started biking/taking the bus. It's summer now, but it will be fall and winter soon enough and I'm a very slow knitter. My goals are to make my husband and me a pair of bicycle ear warmers and my daughter a pair of warm wool mittens using the "lobster claw" kit from Morehouse Merinos. Keep your fingers crossed that I even get one done! sicilianbuttercup on Ravelry

This summer i am working on the girasole blanket (from loopy ewe knit along), finishing a lace cardi from french girl knits book, a tank from the tahki terra collection and a shawl from eco knits.i also have a dress waiting to be sewn from weekend sewing book, and a baby blanket knit after the lil devil design from the divorced, drunk and covered in cat hair book due by summers end. I am also trying to knit knit knit and get my etsy site back up and running as i am now semi retired...so some extra cash would be very nice! smile So finishing these goodies as well as canning and really getting the house in eco-order is my summer goal.

My summer goal is give socks another shot. I make one pair last summer but they were a little frustrating. I'm hoping to learn to do two at a time, toe-up. I'd also like to give cables a try for the first time this summer. And lace! Ok, looks like I have 3 major goals.
1. socks.
2. cables.
3. lace.

My knitting goals for this summer include a summer jacket and a laceweight scarf for me. Most of my knitting is for others. I also want to finish the 2 pair of socks on the needles.
Of course I keep getting sidetracked by new projects like a cute beach coverup for my girls and myself. Not too matchy though. LOL!

My goal is to get in alot more knitting time and to teach my dd, Nikki (6.5) to knit. She has been patiently waiting for over a year. My first thought is that she is too young but little ones have a way of not giving up on something they really want.
I believe she can learn to knit because she wants to knit with mom. I'll be sad when those days are gone and she's off on her own :-) My other goal is not to let the house, the perpetual pick up after the kids, the floors, laundry, and vegetable garden weeds...(the list could go on and on and on), take over my summer days. My specific knitting project list will be on my blog. Here's to knitting with your children! - Erin

My goodness..I just posted my list and I'm slightly intimidated by what I'd like to get done. I'll need some divine intervention, a bucket load of caffeine, and a daughter who can entertain herself. But all will be accomplished!!

And now, after reading the other comments, I feel like a whiner. But with 45 hours of work, full time college, a toddler, and a pregnancy...it's tough to find knitting time. Argh!!

Hopefully I win..I'd love some Blue Sky yarn..

Cheers,

I do think of starting a blog, but then my gmail would not make much sense (bloglessinnj) so I will stay blogless and just leave my goals here.

I hope to knit a lace shawl this summer. I am so intimidated by the thought of blocking it, that I keep putting it off but this is the summer!

(if I win, and don't accomplish my goal, do I have to give back my prize - oh wait, that's not positive thinking)

so here are my knitting goals for summer.

1. Knit at least 2 lace shawls.
2. Start working on my first sweater
3. Make some more toys for my niece.. there are so many toys I would like to make her, and as she's going to be 6 - I suspect that she'll soon outgrow knitted toys.

I have many goals in knitting for this summer. 1st i want to finish the dog sweater I am knitting for my co-worker Autumn's little boy yorkie. I have promised my son to knit a scarf for winter to match the hat I knit him last winter- so I definitly need to accomplish that. (5year olds are great at reminding you that you need to complete projects.) I would like to start on a bath set for my sister in law for christmas and also start making some washclothes and dish towels for xmas gifts. So now all this is written down I guess I'm accountable for finishing it. Thanks for the motivation.

My summer knitting goal - go back to knitting after many years of not doing it. I'd like to jump in with a nice summer top. Maybe something in cotton or silk. There are so many beautiful yarns available now. I'd love to try them.

I hope that is not to amorphous for a goal - I haven't gone shopping for yarn yet, or maybe I'll win and have a boost in getting started.

I love a contest and I love having goals. I spend my summer away from my home and my stash so I have to think about what I'm taking with me and it forces me to set some goals.

This summer I plan on:

- Start Inca Marl Coat
- Start and finish Tilted Duster
- Start Twisted V Pullover

Sounds like a lot but my Annikki is already to the sleeves.

My goal is only partly knitting - to finish and gift the socks that I just started for my mom, and to knit two baby sweaters for the twins a friend is having this fall. The other goal is to finally spin up the rest of the fiber that I bought at *last year's* Shepherd's Harvest (and, for me, that's a hefty goal).

~ finish my Ashbury sweater (I'm just 2/3 done with the back so it has a looooong way to go)
~ finish my plain vanilla STR socks (the 2nd sock just needs the toe grafted and ends woven in)
~ knit a few baby knits (not sure exactly what yet but I've got 3 friends pregnant at the moment)
~ knit a pair of socks for my 2-yr-old
~ finish a sheep doll to take along to SS09!

I'm joining the WIP Wrestlemania in Ravelry and trying to wrestle my pile of wips down to a more managable amount (currently the count is about 25). I'd consider the goal fullfilled if I by the end of summer only have 15 wips ;)

More particular, I have this stranded childrens sweater that I really don't want to celebrate it's 2 year anniversary as a wip... so that one gets priority ;)

I plan on knitting lots of shawls this summer it seems. And by lots, I only mean 3, though I've got a handful more in my queue on Ravelry... The 3 are the ones I must complete. I like making lists, but generally do not follow them. I really think I just like looking at my handwriting sometimes (how narcissistic!).

I have some pretty lofty goals, but I hope I can get them done well before the end of fall.

- two baby somethings, for two pregnant friends
- a cushion cover of my own design
- three pairs of socks
- finish the cardigan on the go and start the next one
- finish a UFO from the Basket o' Doom

#1. Finish the pair of socks that has been on my needles wayyy to long.
#2. Knit the "Beach Glass" shawl by Susan Lawrence (have the pattern & need to get my yarn).
#3. I am learning to weave so work a little more on that.

Blogless, Donna S (too boring for a blog-that's whats wrong with me!!)

My summer goals are:

1) Finish knitting a dress for my god child. (my first garment!)
2) Learn to knit socks!!
3) Make a pair of mittens for a friend (I made her a scarf about 2 yrs ago, my first project, and never got around to making the matching mitts!!)
4) Knit something for me! Since I started knitting 2 yrs ago I have not once knit something for me!

Thanks for doing this!! I really hope I can get this all done!

Take care!!

I plan to conquer my first lace shawl, out of sockweight. Also want to knit down some of my sock stash. I am abroad this summer in South American, so I want to visit with some local spinners and weavers. More goals will develop I am sure. blog at: http://beltwayspinner.blogspot.com
