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.

- The Robots.

knit enough pairs of socks so I can wear hand-knitted ones every day! (read all 13 entries…)
Round 23 of the Feet!

I am so sleepy right now. So, I am writing rather than knitting and thus saving my work a lot of mistakes.

Below is a picture of the socks before I got into the feet of socks three and four, including the two finished socks. One day, I’ll learn to knit four socks at a time and then, I’ll be invincible.

I’m really hoping to get these finished before I go to donate plasma and platelets. I want to wear these (yellow) socks when I’m on the chair.

In case anyone is wondering, I knit my socks two at a time via magic loop method. It’s an invaluable skill to learn.

Magic Loop

I keep hearing about this magic loop and really must try. I’ve been knitting socks, toe up and top down, for years now, and just have never sat down and learned how to use the magic loop method. You’ve inspired me! Now, off to youtube for a how-to. :)

Re: Magic Loop

I have a couple of YouTube videos for you. :)

I learned to do first 2 socks at a time on 2 circulars and then magic loop from looking at this channel. So, I’ve linked to a search for magic loop from the VeryPinkKnits channel.

I hope this helps you. It’s a great way to knit, not just socks, but anything in pairs or twos. I’m going to knit two hats at the same time since my mother and I are near the same size. When I make a sweater, I’m also going to do the sleeves two at a time to be sure they’re evenly matched.
