Halfway through December, let me tell you how my attempt to knit 30000 stitches in November went.
It went really well.
It went so well that I upped my goal to 50000 and met that as well.
57399 / 50000 stitches. 115% done!
I found that I was being especially conscious of using all my little bits of time to knit - in class, in the afternoon, in the evening... might have had a little something to do with it being that time in the term when I was looking for procrastination tactics.
My stitches really added up and I was kind of astonished at how easy it was to make my goal. I even though I might keep doing it through December and see if I could get to six figures.
I've stopped, though. I like keeping track of things and watching my progress (hello, word counts), but the counting was taking away from my knitting time and getting to be a distraction. So maybe it'll be a yearly thing.
