I was catching up with Tien (an enabler extraordinaire) when she mentioned the third fringeassociation hat knitalong. Hey. I downloaded that pattern. (hmmmmm. it's around here somewhere.)
Found it. Worsted. (eeewww) I haven't been in the worsted 'suitcase' in a long time. What a mess. (that's probably why.) Finally found a skein of something, but I fought a bagillion partial skeins that had wound themselves into a big globby mess. Half skeins, quarter skeins, bitty-bit skeins...all jumbled together. (hee hee....idea!) Called my friend who is making a mitered square worsted weight blanket and she was thrilled to take my debris. (I didn't tell her they were mostly grey, beige, and black.)
A giant shopping bag full---delivered---made a whole lot of room in the suitcase. Plenty of room now for the worsted/aran/bulky from the knitting closet. Yep. Cleaned off a couple shelves.
What are those knitting books doing, living with the gardening books? Moved them to the empty shelves. Better.
Might as well clean out the whole bookcase, now that the knitting books relocated. (there's that cookbook I've been looking for!)
And then I moved to the kitchen....
and cleaned counters, rearranged drawers (I only have 2), created space for some things that still needed a home after the scary-basement flood, and hauled a few things to the attic (because a tiny shelf and a chair from the kitchen landed in the craft room, which, of course, meant that THAT room got tossed, too)
All because I decided to knit this.
Really quick knit. (one baseball game quick)
