2021 Goals Review for December

We have been getting a lot of exercise while we are enjoying the warmth of Florida by walking more and swimming. I have been focusing more on my eating habits which has helped. I’m very happy with completing my crafting goals. 

  1. Lose 5 lbs. – I am the same weight that I started at this year so I did not meet this goal. But I’m glad that I haven’t gained weight overall for the year like I have other years. 

  2. Knit 12 squares on my national park blanket. (There are 60 squares in the pattern and this is year 4 of the project.) – 57 squares complete. I’ve knit a total of 18 squares this year. This goal is complete.

  3. Knit a sweater. – I finished  6 sweaters this year: the Nesting Cardigan, The Rocket Tee, Bright Axis, 2 Recalibrates, and the Staple Linen Top. – This goal is complete.

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

  5. Read 12 nonfiction books. – This goal is complete.
