The latest episode of Stash and Burn discussed an idea called Ten in '10. The premise is to select the ten projects in your ravelry queue that have been there for awhile but keep getting pushed back for whatever reason and resolve to make them this year. I decided to give it a go - I have a few patterns that have been in my head for awhile. I only have six that I tagged in my queue but I intend to get them done soon. I'm going to apply the concept to other things as well. For example, three podcasters have talked about the book The Outlander. It's now on the list of must-reads. I know there are other books that I've been wanting to enjoy but just haven't for whatever reason. They are now another Ten in '10 list.
I've decided to write to the DIY network about fixing the house. With Eric's hours cut and me not exactly on the top of the hiring list it's going to be impossible to take care of the things that need to be done. Of course, thousands of people try all of the time - but it's worth a shot anyway - unless any of you want to get some roofing experience under your belt! (trade ya some knitwear!)
The new year has been lazy so far - cold and snowy, but lazy. We've been relaxing with Harry Potter and some of the TeenNick shows but mostly just the usual being together. I can't wait to get back to normal - kids at school, knitting group, killing the phone battery talking to Jenny.
Can anyone design a custom avatar for me? I'd like a combination of Ravenclaw and Battlestar Galactica that says "Cosmo" on it - Cosmo being my new call name.
Gotta be going - Legend of the Seeker is on now and, well, Richard is eye candy.
