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 7 entries…)
One pair down, one pair almost down

I have a pair of worsted-weight house socks finished. I like them, and I’m getting over the holes I knit into them, but they’re just enough too big for my feet that they drive me crazy. Mom’s coming over today, and if she likes them, she can have them.

I’m also working on a pair of no-pattern socks with Felici spooky – which I bought before they decided to discontinue Felici. It’s Judy’s magic cast-on, increase to 56, 3×1 rib on the top half of the foot (need 1.5” more here), then I will do a Fleegle heel and 3×1 rib on the leg. I really don’t like striping yarn of this size. I like smaller stripes or hand-painted/tonal a lot better.

Can anyone help me with a pattern question? I like the look of the lace for sockophilia on Ravelry, but I wanted something completely different (a shawl or cardigan). But can anyone tell me what type of lace that is (or what I should be looking for) so I can try to find a shawl pattern? I’m looking for a word or phrase that I can put into a search engine that might help me find something similar. I’m having no luck and would prefer not to pay for a pattern that (probably) won’t help me with what I really want.


Andrea409 Find me on PopClogs!


I’m bummed they decided to discontinue Felici. :(

I get so excited watching the next color block work its way onto the needles.

I will have to seek out another cheap, but awesome self-striping sock yarn.

Alsandera has gotten 4 cheers on this entry.
