If we are going on vacation, I have a list of the things that we need to pack. When the house needs to be cleaned, I make a list. Errands, there's a list. You name it, I write a list, if I didn't then I wouldn't do have as much stuff as I needed to.
The good thing about having a list is that I seem to finish a bit faster than if I didn't have one and things don't seem quite so bad because I am constantly thinking things like, I only have four more things on the list. Oh, only three things left. Wow, after I finish this, then I am done and I can mess around.
Generally I have a list for my knitting as well. At the present time I don't. After I finished my last list, I never updated it.
Good thing I read Jean's blog. She mentioned that Ali is having a contest. And this contest is just my thing...lists. So here is my list of things that I want to get done over the summer, most of which are going to be holiday gifts.
- Entrelac socks for my mom.
- Fair Isle socks for my grandmother.
- Ankle socks for my other grandmother.
- Sockapalooza pals socks.
- Lace tank for me.
- Swimsuit for me.
- Baby gift for neighbor (she's having twins, a boy and a girl).
- Finish mystery project (I'll let you know about this one later).
Wow, now that I have it all down, I think the list is a bit adventurous. I will try to get the majority of it done even if it means that I will be working well into winter.
Oh, look what they put in our neighborhood.
Now all I have to do is mail something so the kids could actually use it.
