Dear 2011 or whoever is listening/reading,

I hope that you are MUCH better than 2010 has been to me.  2010 has really kicked my ass and I really don't like to have my ass kicked without my permission...Thank you very much!  The upside to 2011....My car will finally be paid off!  I've been paying on it for 6 years and it will finally be MINE!

Really all I want is no more "when it rains, it pours."  I want smoother sails than the past year (or couple years if I'm being honest) have been. I don't want my car to have anymore problems like it has the past 2 years around Christmas time.  I don't want as much drama at work.....I'm well on my way to that after I switched my schedule in September, but if you could help out a little bit that would be greatly appreciated too.

I really can hardly wait until I can say that I'm debt free...which is a LONG ways off but I'm headed in the right direction...hopefully. I'm hoping that Dave Ramsey can help me get back on the straight and narrow.  Have you heard of Dave Ramsey 2011?  They say he's THE guy if your trying to get out of debt.  That he's actually lost a small fortune and was up to his eyeballs in debt.  We'll see won't we?!

I'm also looking forward to learning more knitting stitches.  Right now I know about 2 stitches.  Maybe even try my hand at crocheting?  I know people who can teach me both, I just have to follow through.

See 2011....I have plans!  They may not be HUGE plans but it would NOT be wise to screw with my temper!

Banana Silk Yarn

Yesterday when I was visiting The Cat and The Crow I found a rather interesting kind of yarn...Banana Silk Yarn.  It's a little bit on the pricey side ($12 a skein) but so far I have been having great success with it.  I'm making a scarf out of it and it's coming out really nicely.  I'm using the "Downpour" color and I really like it alot.

Hello Blog World!

Welcome to my brand spanking new knitting/personal/getting out of debt/sewing/what-ever-else-happens-to- tickle-my-fancy blog, Sheepless In The City.  Why Sheepless In The City?  Well, I've recently found that in our town we have a really nice yarn shop called The Cat and The Crow that is just chuck full of wonderful bits of fiber that at some point I want to learn how to spin into yarn.  Plus, I can't have livestock in town.  Apparently, the neighbors frown upon that.

I am owned by my 2 dogs Laci and Augusta ("Gus") who LOVE it when I am sitting down or laying down to read or knit.  That way they can curl up next to me or sit in my lap and "help" me.  They actually are pretty decent helpers...if you consider snoring loudly helpful.

Speaking of reading...I have 3 different book blogs where you can read reviews of what I've been reading lately. For YA/MG reviews you should head towards For The Love of YA, for romance/erotica you should head towards Nitty Gritty Romance and Erotica Reviews, for everything else please visit The Book Junkie's Bookshelf.

So for now I'm going to leave I can go out and visit all the nifty blogs that I've found recently.  Because if I told you everything I know right now....what am I going to blog about later?!
