The 1+1+1 Project: Q3 Wrap-Up & Q4 Plans

If you’ll remember, my Q2 goals for the 1+1+1 project were pretty much a bust. I did get a lot done, but I left my goals on the table. I was pretty committed to make Q3 happen though and I’m happy to share today that I did it!

Goal 1: Fun in the Tour de Fleece.

Goal 2: Knit up my 3 pairs of socks for the Feel Good Yarn Co Summer Sock Club.

And Goal 3: Finish the 2 projects from Q2 I totally whiffed on.

I’m going to save most of the photos for next week when I can write a bit more in depth about each project — I hope you don’t mind!

So I did it! I managed all 3 of my third quarter goals! Whew-hoo!

There really is no rest for this crafter, so it’s time to square away what’s what for the fourth quarter, right? I’m trying to take into account that it’s a busy time of year — we got lots of birthdays and holidays happening, so here goes…

Goal 1: Knit a Featherweight Cardi in my Birds in the Holly handspun yarn.

Goal 2: Spin some fun yarns for my daughter’s birthday with these fun mini-batts.

Goal 3: Try Kool-Aid dyeing.kool-aidThe only dyeing I’ve ever undertaken did not turn out great, so when I got these Kraemer Natural Skeins in the mail I knew it was time to give it another go. I’ve got three different blends and a basic plan for each. A little research and I will be on my way!

I think my goals are mostly reasonable for this time of year. I suppose we shall see! What are your goals for the last 3 months of this year?

  1. I love all your FOs! Especially the lime socks with the bright toes–were those knit with all the same yarn base?
    My goals for the last quarter are still up in the air…a lot of scattered energy earlier on in the year let me with a lot of UFOs…maybe some cleaning up?

    • Yes! They were! They are all SilverSpun Sock – the green was the August club color and the other two are the June & July colors.☺️

      Cleaning up WIPs is always a worthy goal. I have a brioche project I need to get back to as well sooner than later…
