I did manage to think about knitting quite a lot. Longingly. I came up with (sort of) a knitting/ spinning bucket list. It isn't complete, but it's a start. Hopefully, it will be useful if I ever run into knitter's block (y'know. . .like writer's block). Regardless, it was fun to create. Do you have a knitting/ crafty bucket list? List 10 items on your list in the comments by May 15th and I think we will have our first raffle. I have a beautiful little set of stich markers my mother made. Pictures later - I'm coming up with this off the cuff and wasn't prepared tonight. . .bad me.
