More goals

I think having goals is awesome. When I have a good idea, I write it down. More than that, Jasmin 2008 loves achieving goals.

I was listening to Brenda Dayne's most recent episode of Cast On, and she has set a goal for herself to knit her whole stash in 2008. Wow. Jasmin 2008 is all about less-is-more habits, but Brenda 2008 is hardcore.

While I was listening, I though, "I should knit all my luxury fibres this year." I have a good collection of really excellent yarns, and if I were to get hit by a bus tomorrow, would I really want to have let it sit in the stash instead of having worked with it?

Not a chance. Jasmin 2008 knits with luxury fibers!


  1. If Jasmin 2008 gets hit by a bus tomorrow, I would help her knit until she got better enough to hold her needles herself. If Jasmin 2008 were taken from this earth by said bus, I would cry a lot, then skip the funeral to raid the Yarn Closets of Doom. I may be small, but I'm scrappy and have sharp elbows.

    On the other hand, if Tika got hit by a bus tomorrow, you're welcome to all the luxury fibers in my stash. The good stuff is under the bed.

  2. Damnit, I wasn't first to lay claim to the luxury fibers if 'it' should happen. However I might be the meanest, so I think I still have a chance. But I'd be heartbroken and sobbing as I carried the stash out the door...

  3. Just an FYI... There is a defined procedure in place in case "it" should happen.

    Goal: To defend the stash long enough to ensure maximum stash value and equitable stash distribution.

    I won't go into the details of the plan since they are top secret, but it does involve changing the locks on the house and hiring armed guards. So beware stash vultures, this husband is prepared.

  4. You guys! Buses are just an excuse for buying more really good stuff, so you'll have something to console yourself with while you recuperate.
