October Achievements & November Goals

Goals for October:
1. Finish Boo Club for Halloween. No. I only got about 5 hours in.
2. Finish Cables and Columns, since I want to wear it this winter. Finished it off last night. It still needs to be washed and blocked and I'm not sure how to do that since I don't have anything suitable I could pin it on. Maybe I'll just wear it as is.

Unexpectedly This Month:
Not so much "unexpectedly" as much as "I forgot to put on the goals last month": Finish a Heart.

Goals for October:
1. Start and finish a Heart.
2. Finish Boo Club.

SFS & Smalls

Month: October
Spent: $10.77
Carryover: 70.41

Yet another DMC run. It would be easier to stitch to my budget if I didn't keep running out of thread. I have enough patterns and fabric to last for several years and not much desire to buy any new charts, but floss. I just keep running out.

This month's finish for the Smalls SAL is Heart of British Columbia, which I just squeaked in.

Setting Aside Boo Club

Real life has been kicking me in the face and I have so little time for crafting. I was hoping to finish both Boo Club and my scarf by the end of this month, but I don't think I'm going to be able to do both. And since it's already started to get cold I'm going to focus on the scarf.

Boo Club will join my regular Halloween tradition of being finished just after :)

This is what it looks like as I set it aside:

Almost Halfway

I'm almost done one ball of yarn on Cables and Columns, one more to go. I'm not sure it I'll use all of the second one. I'll probably just stop once I think it's long enoug.
