MIssion Possible 2008

There's a group on Ravelry named as above. I've read through the "rules" and the message posts. It sounds like a good idea. I could use a little push to clear up some knitting room, both literally and figuratively. You are to find 12 things that need to be addressed in your ufo's or stash. It's pretty loose, and can be a combination of things. I'm even thinking about paring down some of my knitting library as part of this project. Anything you don't complete by December 31, 2008, you are supposed to donate somewhere or burn. If you burn it, you're supposed to videograph the burning and post that on YouTube.

Off the top of my head, these things are burning the biggest holes in the pocket of my soul.

1. Kimono Shawl, a ufo

2. Green & Turquoise Big Sweater

3. The Idena Big Sport Cotton yarn in orchid. Yessir, yessir, 2 bags full

4. The original batch of Due Chine

5. Niko's sweater from 2005--knit, frog, or get off the pot!

As for the other 7, there are sooo many choices and I have some other notions, but I have to think on them awhile. I don't want to be too hasty and make committments to deal with things of which I won't. Trying to find the balance between realistic and inspiring action.

If I had ever figured out how the hell to put a button on the sidebar, I'd put the Mission Possible one there. For members of Ravelry, here's a link to the group: Mission Possible Group.
