The Post In Which I Check In For March 2014

Can you believe we're already 1/3rd of the way through 2014? Wow! I wanted to write this post to check in on how March went with my goals for the year.

So, let's have a look at my 2014 goals progress:

~Keep a daily journal.
Continuing to stay strong with this goal and in fact, I'm converting others to the Bullet Journal system I'm using. If you haven't checked the system out, you definitely should!

~Continue keeping a list of the eucharisteo/gifts/joys/Thanksgivings in my life.
I'm doing this in my daily journal. I'm almost to 3,100.

~Read at least one non-fiction book each month of 2014.
1 ~ Girl Meets God: On the Path to a Spiritual Life by Lauren Winner ~ completed 5-January-2014
2 ~ Almost Amish: One Woman's Quest for a Slower, Simpler, More Sustainable Life by Nancy Sleeth ~ completed 18-January-2014
3 ~ In Praise of Slowness: Challenging the Cult of Speed by Carl Honore ~ completed 9-February-2014
4 ~ Organized Simplicity: The Clutter-Free Approach to Intentional Living by Tsh Oxenreider ~ completed 16-March-2014
5 ~ Confessions of a Prayer Slacker by Diane Moody ~ currently reading

~I plan to continue sharing about the creative part of my life which includes knitting, spinning, and designing patterns on a month to month basis here on my blog. Hopefully that will include sharing about designing at least six knitting patterns, knitting at least two sweaters for myself, knitting at least six pairs of socks for myself, spinning at least five batches of fiber, knitting several preemie hats to donate to charity, and who knows what else!

Finished Projects
Sweetness Cowl ~ From the Sweetness pattern by tincanknits. Knit on US9 (5.5mm) needles with Peace Fleece Worsted in the Antarctica White + Perestroika Pink colourways. I received this yarn in a swap and this pattern appeared as the perfect one for it. I love how it turned out!

Sowing the Seeds Cowl From the Sowing the Seeds Cowl by Zena Perry. Knit on US5 (3.75mm) needles with Wandering Wool Rock Creek Sock in the Aurora Borealis colourway. This is a gift for a friend. I loved this pattern. I was gifted it by the designer who is my friend Zena. And, I have enough yarn left in this colourway to knit another one!

I also completed two sock design patterns, but I can't release the details on those until later in the year.
