Fo Friday 5.5

May has come to an end and that means its time for the May Wrap-up. I thought it would be fun to share my progress on my goals also. Here is a list of my goals for the year:

Finish UFO's from 2012
I frogged a lot of the UFO's from 2012 so I don't think I have many if any left to finish. 

Finish all new projects I start
I have been doing a good job at finishing all projects I start this year. I may take a while to get back to them but they get done in the end. Right now I have a shawl that I haven't worked on in a while but my goal is to finish it up next month. 

Add more variety to my Etsy shop 
Currently I only sell amigurumi and baby bibs. But next month I will be introducing at least one new product, Amigurumi rattles for babies. I have a couple other projects in mind I just haven't found the time to work on them.

Learn at least 4 new crafts 
Tunisian Crochet: I'm working on a needle case made in Tunisian crochet. Right now its on hold but I plan to get back to working on it in the next couple of months.
Broomstick Lace: I made myself a scarf using broomstick lace back in March. I really want to try another project with this technique I just haven't decided on one yet.
Hairpin Lace: I made my mom a scarf using this technique for her birthday and I'm planning on making her a shawl but I haven't started. This is one project that was planned in 2012 and I just never got around to working on.
Knitting with Beads: I made my first attempt at knitting with beads this month. It was a small cuff but I really want to get started on a shawl that involves knitting with beads. 

Use up Stash yarn 
I'm not really following through all the way for this goal. I have been using stash yarn for some projects but I've already made big purchases of yarn three times this year. But there are no plans of purchasing anymore so I should do better from now on. 

Make a total of 120 amigurumi 
I'm making great progress on this goal. I've already made 47 out the 120 I want to make. I still have 73 left to make meaning I should try to do 10-11 a month to be able to accomplish my goal. 

Stay Organized
To be honest I don't get organized as often as I should. The last time I did some cleaning and organizing was on Sunday because I really needed to fix things up. I want to at least try to do this every 3-4 weeks.

May Wrap-Up 
I finished 11 amigurumi.
I also published 3 patterns this month and 6 of the amigurumi I made are from my own designs. The other 5 are Freshstitches patterns. 

I only have one FO this week. Its the second sample from my wolf pattern: Gabriel the Grey Wolf!

Reminder: Tomorrow Saturday (USA) is the last day to use coupon code FoxandWolf and get $2 off when buying both Gabriel the Grey Wolf and Fabian the Red Fox together in one single transaction. Each pattern individually is $5, with the coupon you can get both for $8!
