101.    Make a new list


I love reading thru this list nearly as much as it formatting between Word for Mac and WordPress annoys me…some things I just can seem to be able to alter.  On the other hand, there are some things that I can do something about and its those that look like they are going to be the most interesting.  I have to laugh at myself when I read some of my goals…12 sweaters?  What was I on when I thought that THAT would happen?  Using up ALL my sock yarn before buying more?  Um, No.  I failed at that one early on.  My list was written when I was in a very different place…physically and mentally, A year ago I was in a different, different place and today I am looking forward to a whole NEW different place within the time of the list expiring…a new place that can change a lot of these plans and ideas into real things.  Growing green things is hard when you dont have any dirt in your region…but after re-doing #47 and #48, there will be plenty of dirt, a chance to become more self-sufficient, raise ducks/chickens and plan on what I am going to with the last two “For 2011” challenges.

For the record:  #98 is Spin my Intentions Rovings.  I really, really like what I have come up with so far with this project and I can’t wait to see what the next 12 rovings bring me.

Happy Old Years Night!  Stay Tuned tomorrow of my Knitting/Spinning recap of 2010 and some photos of recent adventures.
