43 things I might want to do this year....

Well, that is a wonderful idea if you are inclined to get tied to a computer for hours at a time. In my spare time I prefer having my knitting or books in my hands. Having said that I do like some video and computer games(old school Zelda and spider solitaire, nothing that makes me motion-sick) and surfing the Internet for knitting patterns and news about new books from my favorite authors. I am willing to try out all these popular gizmos but have the feeling they take more looking after than I can manage (I have a hard time remembering to check my personal email more than once a week let alone keeping up a facebook or myspace page). Instead of trying out the website Stephen is so excited about I'll just walk through our krl2pt0 training and get a guided tour rather than jumping in over my head. Some of these things sound really great but I'd rather create something with my fingers that I can wear or give to another :)

Hi! Guided tours are wonderful things, aren't they? I'm visiting all the interesting and creative new blogs that are popping up. Your observation about 43 Things is right on the money - it takes a lot of time to maintain. I signed on quite a while ago.

Have fun with krl2pt0!

I am a quilter and have to keep my hands busy also! Just finished listening to "My Antonia" by Cather on audio. Was wonderful and lush if you like that kind of storytelling.

I heartily agree that there's nothing like listening to a good book while creating a thing of beauty with one's hands. It's the ultimate in multitasking so far as I am concerned.

I am in absolute agreement with you. It seems like I can barely motivate myself to read emails from friends after working on a computer all day - and the new balls of yarn or new audiobook is definitely going to win out if I'm given the choice.

Too bad we can't make the argument that knitting is also a useful library technology!

I think you have another sympatico spirit in kitsap-knitwit.
