3. Become more confident with casting on. So far, my least favorite thing is starting a new project (which is why I don't have many projects started. lol)
1. DS's scarf is done, with fringes, washed and he's been wearing it to school for the last two weeks. I also put an edge on my dishcloth, so those are two projects done!
I have also started knitting for about a 1/2 hour to hour every night.
I've started a scarf for DD that is the same design and yarn as DS's, just a different color. I expect this one will take less than 13 months to complete.
2. Started pattern #1 -- Mesh stitch, on circular needles even. (And I really love the circulars -- no long sticks poking out everywhere!
3. I'm getting better at casting on. I really like the long tail cast on and it is in the little book I keep in my yarn bag and really easy to grab and reference when I start. Hopefully soon I'll be casting on all by myself.
I'm going to add a couple more, since I'm doing so well with my initial ones (I really thought I'd struggle with #1 but it's been surprisingly easy.)
4. Try socks. On circs. Maybe 2 at a time.
5. Join a KAL.
6. Start a crafting journal/blog.
