Three 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.
*Self-published Rescue Me, Chin Boy, and Show Me the Stars (Doctor Who Inspired Socks) on March 29th and it has been truly amazing! Thank you so, so, so, so, so, so, so much to everyone who has purchased, queued, favorited, etc. my new pattern.
*Writing & knitting another pattern right now (a baby blanket).
*Two hat patterns need to be written up and given to test knitters so I can release them hopefully by the end of April.
*Have an idea for the another pattern, but it's only in the sketching stage.
~Knit enough pairs of socks that I can stop wearing store bought ones.
*Four pairs completed for me. And another pair on the needles now.
*Plus one pair 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.
*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.
*Over #1900 now.
Socks on a Plane for Katie ~ From Laura Linneman's pattern Socks on a Plane. Knit on US 1.5 (2.5mm) needles with Berroco Comfort Sock in the Beach House colorway. These were a birthday gift for my sweet friend Katie.
Junction Shawl for Mom A. ~ From Lee Meredith's (Leethal) pattern Junction. Knit on US 5 (3.75mm) needles with Knit Picks Comfy Fingering Weight in the Bison & Peony colorways. My mother-in-law saw my Junction shawl & asked me to knit one for her.
2013 Top Down Preemie Hat #2 - From the Top Down Preemie Hat pattern that I designed. Knit on US 2.5 (3.0 mm) needles with Universal Yarn Patchwork in the Island Breeze colorway.
Camden Cap for Momma W. ~ From Camden Cap by Woolly Wormhead. Knit on US 5 (3.75 mm) & US 6 (4.0 mm) needles with Kraemer Yarns Perfection Worsted in the Quartz & Sky colorways. This is for my Momma.

Knit on US 5 (3.75 mm) & US 6 (4.0 mm) needles with Berroco Comfort Solids & Heathers in the Rosebud colorway & Lucci Yarn Sequins in the Cranberry (except it's not Cranberry, it's more like Hot Pink!!!!! But definitely Not Cranberry!!!!!) colorway. This is the 5th time I've knit this pattern (and probably will be the last time!). This hat is for me.
Level Up Socks ~ From the Level Up Socks pattern by Heather Kinne. Knit on US 1.5 (2.5 mm) needles with Knit Picks Stroll Tonal in the Summer Blooms Tonal colorway. I modified this pattern to knit them toe up instead of cuff down. These socks are for me.
