2. Knit at least 1 sweater - I finished with my sweater. (Collins Tee)

3. Yarn - more out than in (use more yardage than I buy) – I hope I can achieve this goal but I need to get busy knitting! Not a lot of change since I’m still in the process of knitting a shawl and a pair of socks on the ship. As of August 31:
