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.

Now for sock #2. Love this!

First sock class last night

And all was going well until I got home. Then I accidently pulled one of my needles completely out and couldn’t pick up all my stitches from that row. I tried to rip it back a row and still had issues. I ended up giving up and will start completely over tonight. Frustrating!

Knitting Class News- A sock project class!

Last night at knitting class the instructor mentioned that she had a friend that might be interested in teaching a sock class. If she does, I’m going to be first in line to sign up for that one! I hope to find out next week.

Wahoo! I'm knitting

And purling. My first class was last Monday and the time just flew by. I had such a great time. It was like riding a bike and it all came back to me. I even learned how to bind off, though not completely sure I’m doing it correctly. I will find out next Monday. Since then I’ve completed one dish cloth with just knit stitches and now and half way through another which includes both knit and purl. I’m getting pretting comfortable with this and hope to move on to more difficult patterns soon. I am learning how to actually read the patterns, which for me has been the biggest challenge!

Signed up for a class

It starts next Monday and runs for three weeks. By the end I will be able to bind off, increase and decrease stitches and read a pattern – all things I have never done (by myself in recent history). Yeah! I’m doing this!

Took a beginner knitting refresher - Jan 24

Had a beginner knitting DVD that is really good. I watched it tonight and practiced knitting and purling for about an hour. It has been so long since I learned but it came right back. I think I’m ready to pull out the sock pattern and see how that goes.
