Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

knit enough pairs of socks so I can wear hand-knitted ones every day! (read all 9 entries…)
Two pairs down!

I realized that I had forgotten to include a pair of Halloween socks I had knit in October. They are seasonal, but I suppose they qualify as socks I could wear on a daily basis.

Hope they don’t frighten you all too much; they are rather spoooooky, after all.

(These were made with KnitPicks Felici Spooky colorway.)


brickhorse One day at a time; one bite at a time.

Great goal!

I can knit but not purl. Maybe someday I’ll learn to purl.

What knitting projects have you made so far? Do you crochet, as well?

P.s. It took me a little while to master the purl stitch. I taught myself from youtube videos and just could not get it. Finally, it clicked!

I have made 3 scarves, and am making another one. It’s one of my goals to finish, and I’m on year 3 to finish it! Ack! And it’s for a friend. I am half done. I’ll try youtube for purl, but I think that it will have to be after I finish the current scarf.

Alsandera misses "Member since: blah blah, 2008." Shoulda kept that account. lol

What kind of scarves are you making? I made my first non-arm-knitting scarf with bulky (5) acrylic and felt like it was going to take forever. I can still barely imagine making one with aran (4) or worsted (4) weight, let alone fingering (3).

The number one thing I’ve learned from knitting is patience. I used to feel like scarves took forever…until I started making sweaters. I see people on Ravelry who can knit a sweater in a week! I’m very slow, I suppose, because no way could that happen for me. I even found one lady who knitted something like 46 sweaters last year. Wow, can you imagine!? I’d feel bad having all those in my closet, because they would rarely get worn. But I do understand the desire to make so many gorgeous things.

Have you an interest in crocheting? It’s so speedy compared to knitting. I enjoy it immensely!
