2022 Goals Review for August

August was a fun month! We started out by camping in the Smokies and ended it at the TreeTops Resort in Gatlinburg. We did a lot of hiking and had a lot of fun!

1. Lose 5 lbs. – I’m the same weight I was in January. Still struggling with this goal.

2. Finish my national park blanket. - complete!

3. Year of the Gnome - knit at least one gnome a month. Completed 8 gnomes. 

4. Knit a sweater. - Complete!


5. Yarn - more out than in (use more yardage than I buy) – Not doing well with this goal since I bought 22 skeins of Cascade 220 for the Camp Along Blanket. Maybe I can get the blanket complete before the end of the year.

-Yarn used - 7005 yds.

-Yarn bought - 10050 yds.


6. Design 3 new patterns. – Finished one sock design and a cowl design.


7. Learn something new. -  Complete! I’m mosaic crocheting a blanket and dabbling with watercolor painting. I also added embroidery this month which I haven’t done since I was a child.
