Achievable Goals!

Well here we are in January. I have decided New Years Resolutions are not for me and instead I will set myself regular achievable goals, these can be weekly, daily or even monthly. The main thing is not to try and do everything at once, prioritise, plan and execute, but don't try and overload yourself with too many goals at once!

I'm still being strict with what wips are on the go and trying not to start anything else until something is finished.

I have almost finished the weavette blanket, except when I finished joining all 272 squares, 16 x 17, and laid it on the bed there was something in me that decided I REALLY MUST do another row of squares and make it 17 x 17. I need to make 5 more squares, join them to the the rest of it and then I can procrastinate about doing the edging

There is a warp left on the loom from some public weaving in September. I have been working on this a little, but I have been distracted with some spinning. I am trying to finish this though as there are things queueing up to jump on the loom. I have the warp that came from the Saori warp exchange, a ready made warp in purples which I bought in 2013 and now I've been very lucky to have been sent a beautiful handspun warp from the lovely Sarah over at Yarnspider, although as this is handspun it is going to need some special yarn to make something fitting, there is some nice camel/merino on the wheel at the moment but I have plenty of time to plan these projects in the mean time! I also haven't experimented with my comb reed yet, I have some beautiful silks from Handweavers studio and a new finer reed to play with!

This is my first spin of 2015! 400m of superwash and nylon sparkle. I bought this as a roving from Caroline at WoolforBrains. Its been a lovely spin, very sparkly and made a nice change from my own fibre. I've never made a roving from a batt, something else to try one day!

I wouldn't have recognised it because the colours are much richer in the yarn.

I'm still avoiding making a to do list, I ripped it up over Christmas and promised myself a fresh start in 2015.
