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.

Knit mittens for coworker

ZewyOne done,

minus the thumb! Had a really strange error in one the cables, and tried to knit backwards to fix it. Holy CRAP unknitting a cable is hard!! I ended up double twisting it before I realized how to do it. In the end, it’s not totally turned out the way it needs to be, and there’s a string of yarn lying across 3 stitches somehow…. going to duplicate stitch over top of it to camouflage. Fortunately, I think this might be something only knitters will notice… 3 years ago


Knitting these for a coworker’s daughter for Christmas. Long-cuff antler cable pattern done in dark grey, very pretty and I think she’s going to love them.

I’ve reached the start of the thumb gusset on the first mitt, but my wrist was really bothering me so I had to take a break and now I’m slaving away at those owls.

Goal is to come back to this one this weekend while bf is at the UFC! 3 years ago
