Spins A Good Yarn

51 in 1001

I found a group on Ravelry which led me to this site, 101 To Do In 1001 Days. You are supposed to make a list of 101 things you want to accomplish in 1001 days (which is approximately 33 months). There is a great calculator which will figure out your ending date here. It started on January 1, 2008, but, as you can see, I’m a little behind! In fact a LOT behind, as I only have 51 items on my list. I found a new friend in Meagan’s knitting group in Mentor, Ohio, who also wants to do this, but doesn’t have 101 items either. So, we decided to mentor each other and do our lists even though we don’t have quite enough items. Any progress is great, I say. So here is my list:
