Thank you!

I am apparently trying to self-sabotage already–I left my mini knitting bag with the lace scarf project in it behind after knitting group yesterday! Thankfully it was handed in to lost and found and I can pick it up tonight.

I have also accomplished the very important step of deciding which garment (that is already in my queue and that I have the yarn for) I will knit.


@Greyweld Still working on my bingo card, but add to prize list:

  • 3 of: OMD goodies pack! pocket budget planner + set of stickers, shipped worldwide

Hooray! Done!

Finally finished my bingo sheet! I had one blank for like a week but inspiration finally struck.


Made an edit since I managed to already accomplish one (very small) goal from my list.

OH CRAP! It’s almost 2020. Okay, okay, okay, I think I’ve picked semi-realistic enough goals. Some are going to be easy, some are going to be hard. Some are very dependent on being healthy, so hopefully I haven’t jinxed myself.

I put Leave No Trace as my free spot because it’s something I really care about and always do. And hopefully @Oro doesn’t mind that she’s included in my card!


Don’t forget, if life changes you get a chance to re-do as much of your board as you haven’t finished during the year!


Here’s my card! I put an easy one in the center, just cause. I put pay off a credit card on there twice because it would be nice to pay off two. Definitely a mix of difficulty levels here, so we’ll see what happens! I can’t think of prizes to contribute right now, but I can probably come up with something. Excited to be playing!


The center is usually a FREE spot - you’ve actually given yourself one “bonus” task! Love the color!
