Additional Aspiring

We interrupt this blog to bring you new aspirations, hot off the presses:

There has been a meeting of the Aspiration Committee and several more 2005 Aspriations have been adopted:

K.R. 1.11 Swatching does not count toward the seven aspired to projects "on the needles," but merely signifies that the item will soon be "in the queue".

K.R. 1.11a New categories, "in the queue" and "recently completed" shall be added to the sidebar to aid in adequately reflecting the number of items in the "on the needles" category.

K.R. 1.12 Should the temperature in Ye Olde District of Columbia, formerly thought by this knitter to be part of the "South" or at the very least a member of the "Mid Atlantic" states, dip below freezing and display tundra-like characteristics, such that thoughts of fleeing back to southern California with or without her beloved husband and animal menagerie begin to plague her subconscious, emergency small item knitting, including items such as Broad Street Mittens or Gifted Hand Cozies, may ensue without penalty, regardless of the number of knits currently "on the needles".

K.R. 1.12a In light of recent tundra-like conditions, an "emergency knitting" shall be added to the sidebar to aid in adequately reflecting the number of items in the "on the needles" category.

K.R. 1.12b When the summer months approach and Ye Olde District is assaulted by those twin evils, "Heat" and the dreaded "Humidity," the "emergency knitting" category may be expanded to include such items as tastefully crocheted bikinis and beer cozies.

Emily,

I love you dearly for not mistaking crampons with feminine products and for being able to intelligently use the word in a sentence. You touch my ice-climbing soul.

If the weather will change with a mere bit of knitting, that's enough for me to make mittens indefintely.

I have found that weather related emergency knitting always results in a change in the weather immediately upon completion of the knit. But you may be a fast enough knitter to get ahead of the change.
What I remember most about winter in the DC area were a series of hideous ice storms. Perhaps you might have to knit some crampons?

so funny---emergency knitting! we knitters can find a way to justify anything, huh? I would also recommend the Super Mittens from "Weekend Knitting"--they knit up nice and quick and if you knit them a little tighter than it says they are super warm, too.

Those were obviously necessary additions to your list. Can't let yours hands freeze or your beer get cold!!

Funny, Julia! Hope it warms up soon- that is, of course, unless you are enjoying your emergency knitting!
