2021 Goals Review for October

This month was a great month for me. I exercised more and I was more productive. I think because the weather is getting cooler that I feel more motivated to do things. I continue to get ahead on my national park blanket squares even though I met my goal. This will make it easier for me to get the blanket finished next year. I also finished another Recalibrate sweater.  

  1. Lose 5 lbs. – I’ve lost 2 lbs. this month but I’m still up 2 lbs. since the beginning of the year. This means I need to lose 7 lbs. by the end of the year to meet my goal.

  2. Knit 12 squares on my national park blanket. (There are 60 squares in the pattern and this is year 4 of the project.) – 54 squares complete. I’ve knit a total of 15 squares this year. This goal is complete.

  3. Knit a sweater. – I finished the Nesting Cardigan,  The Rocket Tee, Bright Axis, Recalibrate, and Recalibrate #2. – This goal is completed

  4. Design 3 new patterns – I completed three designs: The Chinese New Year Cowl and the Double Happiness Sock, and Graveyard Field Socks.

  5. Read 12 nonfiction books. – goal completed.
