Bucket List

My "Cosmic Sister", Krafty1 has come up with an ingenious idea that I think is going to take the Knit BlogWorld by storm.


My Bucket Basket List (my bucket wasn't big enough, doesn't look like my basket is either)! I have included some of my spinning fiber, 'cause....well, there's plenty of that too.
This doesn't EVEN begin to touch my stash/queue list, only a small sampling of projects I want to cast on for...and like Bobbi, I too have more than 60 items (and growing) queued on Ravelry.
I was going to show you all the odds-n-ends stuff I have on hand for "One Skein" projects, but that was a bit much too!

So...what's on your Bucket List?


One Week and counting...

Mark your calendars~~Next Sunday is a VERY special day! Not only is it Super Bowl Sunday but it's also...

(I was going to post about this last weekend and forgot until Krafty reminded me this week...how in the world do I forget such an important day?)


So, will you wear Patriot blue & red or Giant blue & red PJ's?



****WARNING****

Picture of Cuteness ahead~~




Guess who had the opportunity to puppy-sit yesterday?! I wore him out.
Yep, he's in ONE of Ace's Kitty Pi beds. Which is okay with Mr Ace so long as he stays out of his heated, fleece lined, snuggy bed!

Oh and I almost forgot, Diana tagged me for a "Glimpse of What You're Reading"
Rules are: To open the book I am reading, turn to page 161 and copy the fifth sentence on the page! This definitely gives you a teenie tiny glimpse!
This should sound "crazy" to you~~
"Say Thank You?"
And you are asking yourself what the H3LL I'm reading? "Crazy Aunt Purl's Drunk, Divorced & Covered in Cat Hair" by Laurie Perry. Love IT...she's a riot!

Who am I tagging? Anyone reading this who feels like participating...just let me know so I can read your "sentence"!
Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!!

I think you need a bigger basket/bucket!

my 5th sentence is "he hung up the receiver". from Good Omens

Robin - Milo is way too adorable! I just want to pick him up and kiss him.

I'm reading Crazy Aunt Purl's book too...she is so funny!!!

Becky said...

The book I'm reading only has a picture on page 161, so I turned to the next page that actually had words. It is page 165, and the sentence is:

Madmen, dogs, whatever: professional football players march to the beat of their own drummer.

The book is For The Glory Of Their Game--Stories of Life in the NFL by the Men Who Lived It, by Richard Whittingham.

I would need a very large bucket! That puppy in the kitty bed is just too cute!

Bobbi said...

You've got way too much in that basket! Either that, or you can accomplish a whole lot more than I can in a month's time, or you have some projects that require a lot of stash! I only put in my bucket the items I'd like to knit in the coming month. I can always add, but it's the minimum of what I'd like to knit through.

You know what color I'm wearing! GOOOO PATRIOTS!

Sadly, I'm currently I'm not reading any books :(

Milo's getting big quickly! He's just darling!!

Robin said...

That's one cute pup!!! I've read Laurie's book - a fun read. I'm reading Alibi by Sandra Brown and the 5th line on page 161 - The most troubling question would have been answered. I love murder mysteries! Have recently finished reading Eat, Pray, Love. Good book!

Opal said...

I love that idea of a "Basket List." If I ever I got organized, I would definitely do that. It's the getting organized part that always gets me in trouble.

Milo is as cute as ever. What a darling! Maybe you need to make him a kitty pi of his own?

Diana said...

I've got more yarn than I ever thought I'd actually acquire. Baskets, drawers, bags all with more than I need.
I bet that books is hilarious!

It is a lot of fun to knit the blanket buddy..a quick fix. The doggy in this post is ADORABLE!!!

Karen said...

Milo is just too adorable! Don't have a book started at the moment, so can't share the 5th line. :( Afraid my 'basket list' would be more the "55 gallon drum list". LOL

Miss Me said...

basket? how about a dumpster list? a brand new clean dumpster, of course, but i think that sort of size is just more "appropriate"!

Hey! Thanks for the plug! I'm glad you'll be joining me!
