10 = 12 + 2.83 sin[(2*pi/365*(t-365)]

-2 = 2.83 sin[(2*pi*/365)(t-365)]

-0.7067 = sin[(2*pi*/365)(t-365)]

sin[(2*pi*/365)(t-365)] = -0.7848

Solve for t.

[(2*pi*/365)(t-365)] = -0.90244

Use the first value

t-365 = -52

t = 313 days

Oct 1 is day 303. So Oct 11 is one answer. The other day will be 52 days after the winter solstice, or about Feb 11.
