...the First Post of 2008!
I am in Zurich again this week – a nice start to the New Year…hopefully this will not be the trend for the year!
To start with, some numbers.....
1 Cascade 220 Wool 6492
2 Patons Classic Wool Merino 5456
3 Noro Kureyon 4552
4 Caron Simply Soft 4147
5 Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride... 3618
6 Malabrigo Yarn Merino Wo... 3615
7 Lily Sugar'n Cream Solid 3536
8 Koigu Painter's Palette ... 3259
9 Lion Brand Wool-Ease Solid 3033
10 Noro Silk Garden 2974
Ever realize that you have missed something somewhere? I look at the top 10 yarns (based on # of projects listed beside each yarn) and I realize that I have only ever used 3 of the 10 (#3, #4 & #7)….that would be considered failing back in school. Of the 7 that I have not used, I currently have 3 of them in my stash (#2, #9 and #10) So I can at least get up to 60% which would be a D-. The remaining four all need to be on-line ordered, so it might take some doing to get them into my little hands, perhaps an order for my trip home during the summer?
So resolution #1……to make a project with all 10 of the 2007 year end top Yarns based on Projects.
Resolution #2…..to finish 52 projects….one for every week…..I know better than to say I will finish 1 project each week =)
Resolution #3…..to use for at least 26 of the projects in #2 yarn that already exists in my stash…should be an easy enough feat considering the size of my stash
Resolution #4….to not buy any more yarn patterns unless the pattern is to be used as part of a stash buster
Resolution #5…….to make at least 2 projects from both the 2008 Knitting Pattern a Day calendar and the 2008 Crochet Pattern a Day calendar
Resolution #6…..to finish all of my currently existing WIPs
Now on to the non-yarn related Resolutions…..
Resolution #7….to lose at least an additional 15 pounds from my current weight
Resoltution #8….to travel to at least 2 of the places on my list of Places to See Before I Die list; http://landofkimberly.blogspot.com/2005/04/places-to-visit-before-i-die.html
Resolution #9…to travel at least once a month for something non-work related (even if its just a day trip to another city in Belgium)
Resolution #10….to make a decision one way or the other on moving back to the US
Well, I have a lot to do here in Zurich the next few days so I had best get busy!
I hope that all is well with everyone!
