The Post In Which I Check In On Create for February

Two months ago, I shared that my word for this year is create. I also shared some goals to go along with my word create. It's time to check in again.


~Design & publish at least six knitting patterns.
*The pattern I submitted for publication was rejected. That's been tough to deal with emotionally. However, I've decided to self-publish it. It is with 3 test knitters right now with the plan to release it on March 29th.
*Writing & knitting another pattern right now (a baby blanket).
*Have an idea for the third pattern, but it's only in the sketching stage.

~Knit enough pairs of socks that I can stop wearing store bought ones.
*Three pairs completed. I'll share the third pair later this month after I self-publish it.
*I also knit another pair of socks in February but they are a gift for a friend.

~Knit my second ever sweater.
*Looked through some patterns. Haven't found the right one yet. The actual knitting won't occur until after we move to Scotland.

~Knit at least six preemie hats to donate to charity.
*2 down, 4 to go. #2 was knit in March though so I'll save it for next month's round-up.

~Consistently journal.
*Continuing to journal almost daily even if it's just a few sentences each day.

~Continue keeping a list of the eucharisteo/gifts/joys/Thanksgivings in my life.
*Made it to #1800 last week.

Camden Cap for Lola ~ From Camden Cap by Woolly Wormhead. Knit on US 5 (3.75 mm) &US 6 (4.0 mm) needles with Caron Simply Soft Solids in the Sunshine colorway & Universal Yarn Classic Worsted Impressions in the pink, red, & yellow colorway. After seeing & trying on the Camden Cap I made for my sister (her Momma), my 4 year old niece Lola asked for a Camden Cap in her size. I don’t have quite enough left of the yarn I used for her Momma’s hat, so I’m mixed a solid yellow in with it. This was her Valentine's Day present.
