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.

First Scarf

Finished my first double crochet scarf. I also learnt increase and decrease to create the cute little rounded ends for the scarf. :)

The beginnings of my first crochet scarf

it’s a lot faster than knitting and demands less concentration. It’s actually fun once I got a hang of it. :)

Yay, a square...

I realised why my shape became a triangle… I wasn’t turning it correctly… Here is my first single crochet square :)

Involuntary decreasing

I finally got more than a chain going… doing a single crochet square, ok, was TRYING to do a single crochet square.. .it turned out like a shoe… It’s decreasing somehow on one side and I have no idea how it happened. Any advice please? Thanks in advance.


I spent 2 hours last night reading crocheting books and trying out the beginner stitches. And after 2 hours, I had a crooked chain of about 4 cms… I don’t seem to understand the books and patterns and instructions at all… :(

Some helpful pages to start with

Got the tools

I bought some crochet needles, practice wool and a couple of learn to crochet books. I will start on learning crochet once I finish my knitted scarf.
