Um, ok, so tell me more about this list . . . are we trying to do everything on it? Or keeping track of what we've done on it? Or is it a competition? Or what's the deal?

And you need to put it in an excel spreadsheet so we can check things off as we accomplish them . . . .

You can read it and forget it, read it and say - I've done that to many many things and pat yourself on the back or you can copy it down to your computer and use it as a wishlist of knitting accomplishments. The last is what I am going to do. I have done some, want to do some and have never even thought about some. And some I don't think I will ever do but who knows?

I have started to move it to an Excel spreadsheet as a checklist so I can mark what I have done and what I haven't yet . . . . then I'll put ticks by what I think I'll never do . . . . and I'll send it to you so you can check it off yourself . . . .
