2010 Goals

Happy New Year Everyone!

So, some of you may or may not know that I work for a group of investment bankers.  Every day I query databases and spit out data that helps them win bond deals all over the US, and adds $$$ to our company's revenue.  So, this charting and graphing stuff is what I have been doing off and on for the past 5 years.  Has it really been that long?  Well... over 5 years you feel like you are looking at the same thing over and over.  So, I decided to curtail the charts to my needs.

Here is a pie chart of the projects that I am planning to complete in 2010.  I joined the Ravelry group 10 in 2010 to get some help, engcouragement, motivation, and much needed therapy when necessary. (Deb you will still remain my number 1 therapist.  Don't go getting all jealous ;-) )

So, one of my knitting buddies called me a knitting geek.  Hehe!!  I just like to keep things organized.  In college I got an A in Biostatistics.  Well, this isn't Bio, but it's not Investment Banking either. I calculated the amounts by the specified yardage that is required for each pattern.  When I sum it all up, I am slated to knit about 7.24 miles of yarn this year.  That's the distance from Times Square to Washington Heights along the West Side Highway.  Hmmm.....  Let's see if I can do it this year.

So, I didn't get to finish my Sexy Vesty or my February Fitted Pullover last year.  But, I am still working on them, and they should be done soon.  Aside from a dinner party that I will be cooking for tomorrow night, I have no plans for the weekend but to knit.

Happy Knitting everyone!

And someone said I was organized because I already started Christmas knitting! Girl, this is too much. Wow! This really appeals to the geek in me :-)

In my experience, having a game plan is half the battle.

Good luck with your to-do chart and happy new year to you!

Wait, are these already all in progress? That is a pretty darn impressive list. If you finish all of those projects by 2011, I'll buy you some wine.
