Luck and Determination

magazine prize

I was lucky enough to win a copy of the latest Somerset Workshop this past week. I’m looking forward to getting some down-time when I can relax and read through it. Is it really luck when I enter a lot of contests online? Not sure, but entering sure increases my odds. You can visit the Stampington & Company blog here –> Somerset Place.

I am determined to finish this 2nd sock. It’s been laying around since the summertime, and all I need to do is a few more inches of the cuff. So, I’ve decided that 10 rows a day should get me done pretty quickly. Sitting down last night to get my 10 done & I managed to do about 30… so now I’m even more motivated to keep at it. It wasn’t enough for me to want to get it done, or to give myself a deadline – but a very specific daily to-do is what did the trick. Ten rows a day isn’t much but it will get me where I want to be! What am I doing while knitting – listening to these fun and motivating podcasts: Skein after Skein, and CraftyPod.

Any thoughts on luck? Getting things done?

    10 rows a day makes perfect sense. Even when you have very little time, this is an attainable goal.

  4. Funny thing, I have been setting similar daily goals. And you are right! it works!

    I am loving your socks. Absolutely my colors. Just beautiful, Tammy.

    I have a half finished pair waiting patiently for me as well - but they will have to wait just a bit longer - it's the season and socks are not on the agenda right now!!!
