Blogging, Finished Projects

May Progress – 2020 Goals

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.

Non-crafty Goals:

Practice more

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.
