This is just me making plans that will probably never happen but looking back on 2020, I’m not sure what I did (or didn’t do) but, considering that we stayed home more than ever, I just didn’t accomplish much at all.
I finished one sweater and it was one I had started previously but ripped back and started over so I made one sweater in 2020. I finished two projects that were from previous years and hardly needed any knitting. I finished 10 other projects but all were fairly small.
I’m blaming it on COVID but I started a record number of projects and they all have to be finished at some point . . in theory, I suppose they have to be finished.
The bottom line is that I’m not happy with what I accomplished and I think the lack of knitting accomplishments is pretty much a reflection of how all of 2020 was for me. The garden was small and did average at best. The chickens just about quit laying before we gave them away. The fruit trees produced a record number of plums and peaches but we hardly had any jujubes and they always produce like crazy. We didn’t get any pomegranates and we usually get a ton of those.
I did have Addie for five weeks during the summer but she’s such an independent little girl, she didn’t require a lot of my time, though it meant two round trips to MO to pick her up and return her.
There was the move but that didn’t really start full speed til we closed in August.
There’s really no excuse. I feel like I pretty much wasted a year. I want to do better. I love looking back and feeling like I accomplished a lot.
I will finish the Windows Wrap test knit today and I think it will have used close to 1,200 yards and it will have taken me 20 days to make. I haven’t been knitting intensely. I think I could easily knit at least 1,600 yards per month, and I could probably fairly easily knit 2,000 yards per month but 1,600 is going to be my monthly goal.
Tomorrow is December 1. I’m going to think about my goals for next year but my lack of knitting accomplishments in 2020 makes me want to do so much better and I know I can.
