Knitting Bucket List

Well, we survived the move to the apartment, barely.
It was enough to make you weep. Under all that clutter is the furniture.
Would eventually be a dining room.
Still digging out from under the unpacked boxes, which have been confined to the "spare room."
The last frontier, bravely go.......

 I went on a seek and rescue last night for my set of  rosewood double points. The elusive things are just that ... elusive. They will turn up sooner or later. One must remain pragmatic when one moves or one runs the risk of complete melt down. Humour there.
Birthday flowers were much appreciated what with moving AND achieving Senior Status! I look a trifle exhausted!

I did come across my lace weight cardi, a WIP, which I gladly knit on last night. Beautiful hand dyed Primo Lace from Knitivity, which just happens to be the same colour as my car... Once it is knit and blocked I think it will become a staple in my wardrobe. I am loving the little pearls I am kniting into an otherwise perfectly plain little cardi. Have not done a stitch on my Dad's picture the CBN I started at the house. My concentration just hasn't been to that point. Crazy busy at work. The most I have been able to manage is knitting on my second Phydlbits sock.
I came across an article about bucket lists and knitting. Ever since the movie Bucket List; which by the way if you haven't seen it you should; there have been bucket lists for everything.  The knitting thing of course appealed to me. So here are some of the things I want to Knit before I kick the said bucket:
The Princess Shawl from Heirloom Knitting, I have the yarn and the needles, just no time at present.
Spanish Armada

The Spanish Armada Shawl by MMarioKKnits, I want it in black. I mean if you are going to do it lets make it as hard as possible.
That's two things give me time I am sure I will come up with more. ;0)
