challenges are flying about like balls of cashmere......

I love my Tuesday night knitting group.......we're loud, we're funny, we're definitely all different.....there are a few of us who gravitate to the same patterns, yarns etc, but all in all we have a blast for the 2 hours we are together on Tuesday night.
This past Tuesday Emily threw down a challenge to me and instead of keeping my mouth shut, I threw down a challenge for myself that's even worse.....and I'm pretty sure that I'm not even going to come close to meeting it.......
Emily's Challenge: I should knit 1 pattern from every knitting book I own........Not entirely impossible since I did buy the books for at least one of the patterns but some of them I bought to drool over, and does the challenge include books that were given to me? Probably, knowing Emily that will be an ammendment attached to the challenge kind of like a pork barrel promise on Capitol Hill.
My Challenge that I laughingly threw out and then thought about promptly stuffing a ball of acrylic in my mouth....
For Lent, I will give up looking at Ravelry.........Honestly this might be worse than quitting smoking...I'm on Ravelry multiple times a day updating projects, looking at new projects, looking for an idea for a project.....holy crap, what have I done.......I'm already twitching and thinking the dark space under my desk looks like a nice spot to curl up into the fetal position and go back to sucking my thumb.....Hey, how'd that blanket get under there?
Happy Thursday

What do you think my Challenge should be for 2011...........

That's a good challenge! I should do that one too as I tend to knit mainly from PDF's I purchase yet I own more than a few knitting books.... My current challenge is to finish one old project before every new project I start. I figure if I alternate old project then new project it might motivate me?! I have many, many unfinished projects.

As for not looking at ravelry for lent, that's a tough one but you can do it!
