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.

I would like to knit this sweater. 3 years ago

diamondlightfootthis has been here for several years

I have several sweaters I want to knit, but it’s so warm out right now, it’s hard to get started on one. I think my first Starmore, though, will be St Brigid. 4 years ago


I’d like to make a Starmore sweater for my older son (seeing as how I’m knitting an aran afghan for my younger one). I can’t decide on a pattern yet, though. 7 years ago

All tater and no totHouston, we have yarn!

I just got the call from my LYS, the yarn has arrived!


I can’t pick it up for a week, but just knowing that it is here is enough to make me squeal like a Japanese school girl. 9 years ago

All tater and no totYarn Ho!

I talked to Donna at ‘In the Making’ and she said that my yarn for St. Ciaran and Na Craga should arrive in the store in about two weeks. I ended up going with Doeskin Heather (8012) and Walnut Heather (8013), but I haven’t decided which color for which project yet. 9 years ago
