2022 Goals Review for November

November was a busy month. We are at our beach house in FL and spent 2 weeks there before a hurricane came through. So we had to put up the hurricane shutters before we left for a cruise. We were supposed to go on a cruise on November 9th but it was delayed a day due to the hurricane. Once we got on the cruise, we had a wonderful time. 

1. Lose 5 lbs. – My weight went up this month because I overate on the cruise. I’m afraid I won’t meet this goal this year. 


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 11 gnomes.


4. Knit a sweater. - Complete!


5. Yarn - more out than in (use more yardage than I buy) – I only finished a gnome this month. I have a sweater and a pair of socks on the needles so I hope this will help the amount used next month. 

-Yarn used - 12919

-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. It is harder than I expected to complete this design. 


7. Learn something new. -  Complete! I’m mosaic crocheting a blanket and dabbling with watercolor painting. I’m still working on my embroidery project. 


8. Read 12 nonfiction books - completed.
