2022 Goals Review for October

October was a very productive month. Hurricane Ian came through and took down a huge oak limb in our backyard. It took 2 weeks to get all the debris cleared up. 

1. Lose 5 lbs. – My weight went up and down this month.


2. Finish my national park blanket. - complete! I also finished my Camp Along Blanket.


3. Year of the Gnome - knit at least one gnome a month. Completed 10 gnomes.


4. Knit a sweater. - Complete!


5. Yarn - more out than in (use more yardage than I buy) – I finished my Camp Along Blanket which used a lot of yarn, but then I went to SAFF and bought more yarn. I still think I can accomplish this goal by the end of the year. I have a sweater on the needles that I hope to finish in November and I will probably make 2 more pairs of socks.

-Yarn used - 12869

-Yarn bought - 13990


6. Design 3 new patterns. – Completed 2 designs. Finished one sock design and a cowl design. I’m working on a colorwork mitten 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.


8. Read 12 nonfiction books - read 11 books so far.
