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.

How to crochet an afghan


Comments:

raslalique I'm baaaack!

:-) This gives me hope

I’ve always wanted to crochet but I thought it would take forever to learn.

Andrea409 Find me on PopClogs!

Awesome! I think if I could do it, anyone could do it. I’m not really good at any other kinds of crafty things. But I took to this stuff fairly quickly. Check out that link and see what you think. Again, Beth (the woman in the videos) is a wonderful teacher, and she leads you through the entire process of making the afghan step-by-step. In all, it’s 16 videos. You can do it!

I checked the linkk

She really is awesome. I’m going to buy some large hooks online. Our stores don’t generally carry those large hooks. Most people I know crochet doilies.

I buy a lot of my stuff from Amazon. I used an I-9 hook for this afghan. So cool that you’re going to give it a whirl. Once you get past working the first chain, the pattern is the same throughout the entire afghan. There are no surprises, so it becomes old hat very quickly. You’ll do just fine. Can’t wait to see a pic of your finished product!
