Odd years seem to be kinder to me than even ones, and I am hoping that '11 will be MY year. You hear that World? IT IS MY TURN. MINE. And I don't care if I sound like a three year old. The world likes balance, and I am due. And while you are at it World? Don't forget my friend, F. She is more than due.

This year is going to be about Less.
* less me
* less mess
* less stash
* less stuff
* less waste
* less procrastination
* less advice**
I am taking on several Less challenges this year:
* Sock Stash Knitdown - I will be using 12 skeins of sock yarn this year, either knit as socks, or other projects. I also bought an Xmas gift for myself - a 25" Schacht Rigid Heddle Loom. Great way to use up sock stash!
* Cold Sheeping - Gah, the last few months have been difficult, but I am back on the wagon. I am not buying yarn until April 2011, and then I will re-evaluate my stash and probably re-up.
* Project 333 - Living in a reduced wardrobe of 33 items. I participated this past fall, and while I had to make some adjustments as the seasons changed (hello! cropped leather jacket does not cut it when the windchill is 5 F outside.), I enjoyed the simplicity of it. I have a major piece to replace in the next week - a simple grey cardigan. My last one got a hole in it within 2 weeks of the beginning of Project 333 round 1. I continued to wear it. Then my nephew spit up all over the shoulder. And the baby spit won't come out. I am calling this lightweight grey cardigan officially DEAD, and so I am on the hunt.
** I am always happy to read about "self-improvement" but after a while all this advice just WEARS on me. So I am going to follow my own common sense and stop relying on the ideas of others.
