CHALLENGE CLOSED OUT

PLEASE JOIN THE FEB UFO CHALLENGE

Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much

I like my weight loss ticker because it shows me that reaching the stars is possible.

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.

I am in...no guarantees how far I will get (every day I see more and more patterns I want to do), but between working late into the night, playing Mom's taxi, catch up on all the WIPs, sleep is at a premium... I seem to spend more time lately frogging than knitting

Great idea. I'll be knitting washcloths and crocheting small 'hygiene' bags to put them in. (I also add small shampoos, soap, lotion, and other items, and give them to a battered women's shelter. God has blessed me with being able to knit and crochet, and in other ways, and I'm just passing it along.) I have approximately 800 yards of yarn for these items. I'm looking forward to seeing how many yards I can use up!

I will take a stab at it!

When all your desires are distilled, you will cast just two votes: to love more and to be happy.

I'm in too. I'll be figuring out my specifics (I have far more yarn and future projects than anyone should have, so need to choose among them)!

Oh I am so in. I will not be able to get anything together until I get home on the 30th but that sill leaves plenty of time before the 1st as I have been gathering patterns and have all my wool under my bed...LOL
