October goal complete

It's that time of the month when we look back at our achievements. October, at the beginning of the month, appeared to be a great month for sewing, with ample time to fit all the work in and still enjoy my hobbies. Even though the month seemed to have promise of lots of free time I kept my goal for the month simple. John and I have a tendency to make snap decisions to head out on short breaks or go for long hikes and that plays havoc with achieving goals. This month we have had a great time socially with a barn dance, a visit to Merton priory, the stitching and knitting exhibition, a short break in Lancashire, and finally, walking in Suffolk last weekend

My goal for October was to knit up to the start of the yolk. Here's my starting photo.

On the 15th October I posted a picture to show my progress having reached the yoke.

I have more than completed my goal having reached the point where I need to knit the collar.

This evening I'm going to start knitting the collar and spend some time deciding on my November goals. This is another busy month but I should have more time for sewing. I pulled out the Christmas quilt I'm making and that may well be my goal but I've got a couple of other things I'd like to complete

I'm linking this post with OMG October linkup party at Elm Street Quilts.  I'm looking forward to reading what everyone has completed this month. The link parties always give me a lot of inspiration.

Bye for now, knitting and a cup of tea is calling.
