Fourth Quarter Goals

It's the last quarter of the year. I did so well with my August goal-setting and September crafting that I'm going to try some more:
  1. Keep the WIP count under 15. This rule can maybe be waived if I'm piling finished things up in order to wash/block them all at once.
  2. Finish everything I start in 2012. Right now I have only my current HPHC projects started in 2012, so this is not an unreasonable goal.
  3. Make all the gifts on time this year. I'm not giving many hand-knit goods this year, but there is another baby on the way (not mine!) that will need some goodies. I've chosen all the projects and have all the yarn.
  4. Don't buy any yarn that isn't needed for a specific project. That's a couple skeins for a present planned for next year, if/when I get coupons. Nothing else, at least until 2013.
The only one I'm pretty sure will be easy is #4. Not going to good yarn stores often certainly helps! While #1 gives me room for a couple of new projects to work on, grad school has been kicking my butt a bit and I can totally see myself casting on multiple things, trying to find something that is easy enough to do while reading papers. I'll try to keep it to a needs-doing project and a for-reading project, tying together goals 1 and 3. While #2 seems easy right now, I've got a bunch more things I want to start! It ties right in with #1, keeping the count down and hopefully finishing things. #3 is probably going to be the trickiest, because I have specific things I'm planning to knit, and I'm not sure how many of them will work for paper reading. Or how much time I'll have that isn't paper reading. Sigh.
