The Plan......

As many of you know, my goal for next year is to FINISH 100 projects during the year.  Anyone who is quick with math will note that I will need to average 2 projects a week....which I have probably never really even come close to doing.  But, it is time to unveil my secret weapon......

A freakin' huge number of started projects I have never finished

Yes, there really HAS been a method to my madness all along!  I'm not just a flaky knitter with ADD who can be distracted by beads/new lace/basically anything except what I'm working on.  I have been stockpiling for the point when I would get so frustrated with trying to find yet MORE room for unfinished projects that I would strike out with a mad resolution!

As I write, I can look around at all my well=planned preparations:  Two Rubbermade tubs FULL of sewing projects that have kicked by arse yet to motivate me to complete them, a third tub containing long-languishing knitting WIPS that may date back to the first Bush presidency  a nice selection of knitting projects in advanced stages, and a counted cross stitch project that I will be staying far away from until sometime in 2015 at the earliest because who needs a hobby that is slower than knitting anyway????? 
This weekend, in honor of getting ready for 2010, instead of working on any of the more current projects that could easily be finished, I dragged out

which now has one FULL pattern repeat, which you would be seeing if A) I knew where my camera was right now, and B) if a white chocolate martini on an empty stomach HADN'T sounded like a good idea about 30 minutes ago.  Switching projects might seem like being a total knitting flake to the uninitiated....or the sober....but around here we like to call it knitterly preparation......

Hey, my blog, my rules.......
