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.

eviltraceyFinished SOMETHING!

I made the Basic Cable hat from Stitch ‘n Bitch’s a great little project and knits up pretty fast.

(Hopefully, it’s not too little…I may have to pick something up at Mountain Equipment Co-Op to use as a backup if the hat’s too small.) 9 years ago

eviltraceyNot as traumatic as I thought

Restarted the Clapotis mini. This time I remembered the yarn-overs. (I’m on the increase rows right now; have to knit two more sets.) 9 years ago

eviltraceyOne step forward, two steps back.

I had to frog my Clapotis mini once I realized that I had missed some yarn-overs. Lots and lots of yarn-overs. (D’oh!) 9 years ago

eviltraceyTwelve rows closer...

I managed to do another 12 rows of my Clapotis mini while watching TV last night. Once again, I used the Fleece Artist sock yarn; this time I used one with a more distinctive colourway (which will hopefully be highlighted when I drop the stitches).

I still have to buy a 16” circular 5mm needle, though. 9 years ago


Well, at least I’ve started this goal. (I started a scarf.)

I’m planning on making a scarf,a hat, and maybe some Christmas tree ornaments—I hate sewing, so I want to do projects with as little sewing as possible. 9 years ago
