Hello and welcome to my first check in with my 2022 goals! I was planning on doing this check in a bit earlier, but time got away from me. I must also admit I have not looked at any of these goals since writing this post back in December, so this should be interesting!
Read 6 non-fiction books, I have read a total of 4 non-fiction books! I am well on my way to achieve this goal
Read the International Booker Prize Shortlist, I have read 2 of the 6, so I feel like I am doing well with this goal as well.
- At Night All Blood Is Black: A Novel by David Diop
- The Dangers of Smoking in Bed by Mariana Enriquez (Read)
- When We Cease to Understand the World by Labatut Benjamin
- The Employees by Olga Ravn
- The War of the Poor by Eric Vuillard (Read)
- In Memory of Memory by Maria Stepanova
Get owned TBR under 15 books, I am currently at about 20 books, so I am getting close!
See a new place, I ended up visiting about 4 new yarn shops this year. Not quite what I had in mind for this goal, but technically I did do it.
Teach myself something new, this year I have learned how to do color work, cables, and bobbles! I also took a class relating to researching genealogy and learned a lot in regards to that as well!
Knit a sweater, achieved! I ended up knitting a Ranunculus which you can see a picture of in my post entitled, Monthly Digest | April 2022. I am really happy with how it came out!
Knit 6 pairs of socks, so far I have created 2 pairs of socks. I am in the middle of my third so I feel like I am making good time with this goal.
Crochet a sweater, I have yet to do this one, but I have plans to crochet one in May 2022. I am crossing my fingers that I actually get the time to do this.
Create 10 things with my hands, as of writing this I have created 6 items. These include; shawls, socks, cowls, and a sweater.
Not Completed: 6
I have successfully achieved 3 of my 9 goals for this year. This is actually great in my eyes due to the fact we are 1/3 of the way through the year and I completed 1/3 of my goals. As for the goals I have not achieved I seemed to be making good progress to where I don’t feel like I am behind on any of them just yet.
I really hope your 2022 is going well and you are working towards all of your goals!
