52 Lists: people you want to be like

For me, the best place for a fresh start or to begin a new project is on my birthday - the beginning of my year. So the year I was 21, I did a photo a day project (that ended up including an internship in Cleveland, meeting/dating my now-husband Adam, and going to New York to work for Vogue Knitting - so I'm retrospectively glad that I committed to documenting that particular year!), and the year I was 24, I knitted the sky (one row on a scarf each day in the color of the sky). So for 27, I'm doing lists. I'm going to roughly follow along with the book The 52 Lists Project.

A list of the people I most want to be like who inspire me

1. Coco Chanel - fashion designer who made beautiful things from what she had access to
2. Elizabeth Zimmermann - knitter who embraced the tradition of knitting, but wasn't afraid to do things differently, too
3. Esther - involuntary queen who walked humbly, pursued justice, and saved her people from genocide
4. All the amazing "boss ladies" in my life (Shannon, Brandy, and so many others)
