Scheduled Knitting Just Doesn't Work!!!

I tried the scheduled knitting last night, and I'm going to tell you right now that it just didn't work!! I was so scheduled that I even set an alarm so I knew when an hour was up and I was to move on to another project. I worked on three projects and then decided I was just too tired to move on, fell asleep and slept until my alarm went off. I never, ever hear my alarm. I'm always awake at least 30 minutes before it goes off. I was laying in bed this morning, thinking to myself--"What's that noise?" And then, I realized--"It's the alarm! I slept until the alarm went off!" Now, that may not sound like any big thing to the rest of you, but it's a very big thing for me!!

Besides, all of that scheduling kind of just took the fun right out of the knitting and crocheting. Turned it more into a kind of chore, and I just can't have that!

So, following the wonderful comments of Kathy and Sonya, I'm asking God what I should be doing and then putting these down in order of importance.

Sonya thought I would have a lot of unfinshed projects, but that is the big problem. I'm not really starting new projects, just trying to finish unfinished ones!! As for new projects, I have enough already on another list for Christmas.

Today was a good day at work today--meaning no nasty comments from patients or co-workers regarding anything!! That in itself makes it a wonderful day!!

As you can see from the progress bar, Dishrag Tag is off and running!! I'm #8 on the list to receive the "baton" (box with dish cloth yarn, etc). I'm all ready to go when it gets here! So far, it looks like our team is doing fairly well. And, really, it's not anything at all about winning here. At least, I don't think so. It's about teamwork, having some fun and getting to know some new people.

Tonight, I'm going to work on my socks. I received an e-mail regarding fall socks and I'm not finished my summer socks!! What am I going to do????

K---that's all for a while!!

My advice comes from hands on experience, lol. More times then I'd like to admit have I made a plan that did not work out.

Hmm I wonder how my dish rag tag team is doing... I am 6th on the list
