Following some very good advice, I decided to join Trashy in making a list of things that I really want to get made this year. So I thought it would be a good idea to start with my Ravelry queue.

Hmmm. That seems to have grown over the last few days (weeks?) and is now taking up 2 pages. I have 45 things queued. I decided to look at it again and really think hard about that list. What could I do without? Surely I don't need that many socks and gloves and cardigans and scarves and hats? So I had another look and have reduced the list. By one. OK, so that's do-able surely? 44 items to finish in a year? Easy. (I am joking here, I am a very slow knitter!)

And then on my 'Must Do' list I thought about finishing some of the partner-less socks. And then maybe adding a few UFO's - 2 blankets for starters.

So all in all Trashy, I'm very sorry, but I have failed at the first post. I have waaay too much stuff that has to go on my list. Think I'll go and cast on something completely different instead.

How about a gag to tie round my eldest sons mouth? That way he could leave his younger brother to go on the PlayStation in peace!

Does this mean I get something (like a pair of fishy socks) for having my sound advice reviewed and ignored????

(just wonderin'is all....)

HOWLING with laughter over here!!!!
my list is exactly the same - and I don't know about you but as I am looking for the pattern or yarn for a project I uncover another UFO!!!

I can't even begin to think about a list at the moment. Maybe when I finish work :o) - but I'm sure it won't have 45 knitted things on -I'm waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too slow for that!

have decided not to do a list either - think i'll just muddle along as usual!!!

Spooky - for a moment there I thought I must have written this post!

I'm planning a weekend of casting on new projects to make the most of 'Guilt Free January' - just in time for 'Finish it off February'!

With a measly six WIPs on the go, I'd better get cracking!!

Ravelry queuing is so dangerous!! You just go for a peek and then see so much lovely stuff and then you have to add it to your queue for fear you might not ever find it again if you don't. It's lethal! LOL
