Knit From Your Shelf 2009?

I am seriously thinking of taking on this challenge from Carolyn. I looked through my shelf to see just what kind of stack I would have to work through. It kind of scared me a little. I am not a fast knitter. I'm not even halfway through Celtic Dreams. We will still have school here. I'm slated to teach three classes at co-op this semester. Fourth grade Sunday School at church, too. And I have a big garden planned. That's March through October here in my zone. Plus, I will still have my normal responsibilities of feeding the family and insuring that we have some clean clothes and surfaces here at the house. So, why am I so drawn to this challenge? The six unused books on my knitting shelf have been clamoring for the last month for me to commit.
Here are the titles in order of purchase date...
Knitter's Almanac(I know!!!)
Folk Socks
Folk Knitting in Estonia
Meg Swansen's Knitting
Knitting Around
Aran Sweater Design
Patterns for Guernseys, Jerseys and Arans

They are all very worthwhile titles with lovely things to choose from inside.
