And we're off!
I've just added in the folks who signed up last night -- and no worries, if you turn up tomorrow, I won't turn you away. As it says in the "rules of engagement" -- if you come late to the party, just set a goal that's appropriate for the time remaining.
A reminder that I have nothing to do with whatever is going on over at Ravelry -- but if you want to participate here and there, well, that sounds good to me. Whatever you need to meet your goal, which is the point, right?
A note about how you report your progress -- or not. Again, this is entirely up to you. If you have a blog and want to report there, fine. If you're on Ravelry and want to report there, fine. If you want to leave a note in the comments here, fine. And if you just want to set your goal and not report, well, that's fine, too. And there's no timetable -- if you feel you have made progress and want to share, then do so whenever you want to.
It's your challenge, and you get to set it yourself, manage it to suit your needs. It's also about attitude -- if the goal isn't working a week from now, well, then look at the goal and change it. Adapt to changing situations, apply a new strategy.
As for me -- many thanks for all the good thoughts about my shoulder. It's still bothering me, and although my usual operating mode is just to jump in and ignore it, I know from experience that I can't, so there will be very little spinning for me in the next three weeks. This was bothering me -- how can I set a spinning challenge and then not spin?
And that's when I realized that over the last year, issues of Spin-Off and Wildfibers have ended up all over the house, and I keep having to go search for them when I need something, so there it is, a goal! I'll spin as much as I can without causing more shoulder problems, and then the rest of the time, I'll gather up the magazines and put them in some order and put them in a magazine box and get them on the bookshelves, where they belong, and where they're easily accessible when I want to consult them.
So there we are -- and now, I'm off to check the Tour de France website, and see if Europe1 has got their podcast feed up again this year!
Best of luck, everyone!
