Um..............

My goal--well, one of them--is to knit 25,000 yards of yarn before the end of the year.  To be on track, I need to be at 6249.999999999999999999999999999 yards by the end of March.  Currently, I'm just below 4000 yards for the year.  Impossible, you say?

Well.........I have two more days, and the latest lace shawl is closing in on the end of an 880-yard skein, the new baby sweater is finishing up the last of a 115 yard skein, and I've picked up the red socks that were languishing because I couldn't remember where I'd put the pattern book, but are full into the second sock and the second half of a 440-yard skein (or 462 yards as Ravelry insists), so there could be a fighting chance that I could at least end the month a bit closer to target.  Of course, if I finished all three in the next two days I could actually BE on target, but amazingly, even I am not that delusional--which is quite possibly a first for me.  

Do you think there are people who actually do hobbies in order to relax?

Wow! Toni you never cease to amaze me. I am in total relax mode with my knitting and crochet, that is why I am stuck at 17 completed projects for the year and holding...and holding...
Have a great day,
Meredith

There are people who do hobbies to relax, I'm sure of it. Of course they probably don't hang out with us, because we make them tense. Just think of it as the Xtreme end of the knitting sport!
