11.5 weeks into this pandemic shutdown and it’s almost starting to feel normal. I definitely miss symphony rehearsals and the children in the nursery I was volunteering at, but the boredom is slightly less. Was it just me, or did May fell short compared to March & April?
I’ve made progress on some of my goals, and have some more goals in mind for after I complete these goals.
Knit a sweater – Completed April 1st
Knit one lace something – In progress
I’m currently on chart 5 of Vernal Equinox Shawl Surprise (free pattern). It’s a huge shawl, and I can’t wait to see what it looks like fully blocked.
Use stash yarn before buying new yarn
For the most part I’ve been good about this. I did buy a ball of cotton yarn because I was out of cotton yarn, and I needed it for a project but other than that I’ve been good about this one. There are a few skeins of indie dyed yarns I’ve been looking at though.
Finish a pair of socks – In hibernation
I’ve decided to hibernate this one.
Update blog more
I’m getting better at actually writing things down when I work on a project. I’ve got some exciting patterns + projects to share with you in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
Update Instagram more
Still trying to improve on this.
The lack of symphony music to work on has made this less interesting, right now I’m just enough to maintain fitness and maintain finger calluses.
Memorize a concerto
I’m still working on the first movement of Bach’s Concerto in A minor (BWV 1041). I’ve been listening to different versions and have memorized most of the first page.
Learn a language
Still maintaining my streak on Duolingo.
That’s it for this month’s 2020 goal update. Be sure to follow @yarnbending on Instagram to stay up to date on what I’m working on and get sneak peeks of upcoming patterns.
