Through Checkpoint 4: 1,560 grams, 34% of goal
There's only a few weeks left for this (ends Aug 12) and I realize I won't be meeting my goal. Majorly, Seriously, Not Meeting It. Seems I once again miscalculated.
My goal was to work through 10 pounds or 4,535 grams (we're counting grams not yards this year) of fiber, fleece and yarn. I thought, with the TdF spinning and the fleeces I'm processing, I could handle eight pounds of fleece/fiber and two pounds worth of knitting.
First thing I forgot was to deduct for the fleece processing loss and waste. Makes a Big Difference. Second thing I forgot was to account for my hand arthritis since the h&r accident two years ago. I just can't knit as much as I used to, or at least as intensely as I used to.
So bottom line is I'll be lucky if I make it to even half of my original goal. A third is better than nothing I guess.
