Priorities

Sally Comes Unraveled highlighted this link in her blog. It's a tool to help you determine your priorities, and if you're scatterbrained like me, you need all the help you can get.

It told me to go buy a house.

That made me short of breath, so I plugged in 15 knitting projects from my queue. I had a few ties, but the first three projects were as follows:

1. Vogue Multi-Pattern Top: Summery, fashiony, colorful. Bring it on.
2. Pinwheel Cape: I might be able to wear this to a wedding in a few weeks. If time stands still.
3. Noro Scarf: I love color. I also fell down and bought some more Silk Garden in a white/beige colorway, and I now want this scarf with a firey passion. It may, however, mean buying two MORE skeins of Noro to match the beige/white. So it goes.

okay. I'm intrigued. I'll have to check that site out later and let it tell me what my priorities are. Personally, I'm pretty sure graduating should be at the top, but baking a cake is at the top of my mind.

What can I say, I'm flattered. :)

I did my finances with it, and then realized I forgot to add paying off credit cards to the list. Oops.

Also, about the zipper, you should talk to Lynn. She's the zipper expert. I just went for it, going in and out of each crochet stitch. That was my second zipper. The first was in a felted bag. I just used a sewing needle and thread and did the best I could to hide the stitches.

(Neither technique would work well for a garment.)

That's funny how you used that for knitting. I actually did the financial thing & was pleasantly surprised (my kids' college money DOES come before me buying a luxury car, yay!). I'm not as selfish as I thought, lol.
