Given my houseguest had to cancel this weekend's visit, I had a little time on my hands. Time to corral the yarn stash!
Some yarns were squished into a small pine cupboard. Some MacAusland wool was lurking in the cedar-lined blanket box, keeping company with the sheep frolicking about on the flannel pajamas.
"If I store it, sweaters will come," to paraphrase a line from an old baseball movie. Apparently, it isn't quite that simple. I should be wearing this wool already. Sigh.
I digress. Back to finding the yarns a home. "Location, location, location," say the realtors. I bought some bins (half price) and got busy. The baby yarns are in their new nursery.
Bits and pieces of this-and-that-yarns are also housed, ready for scarves, hats, mittens and maybe a little cotton shell for next summer?
There they are; all of the yarns neatly tucked in the guest room closet, declaring,
"Enough, already. Knit something!"
Rest assured, I do knit (not often enough), it isn't a matter of buy and never use...
I made this for one little person...
and these to go with the sweater.
However, it's confession time. I have a bad habit of starting something, getting distracted by other things, then avoiding the project because I have to sort out where I left off way back when. Silly, silly, silly.
Bad habits are made to be broken. This winter, I'll wear this sweater! Feel free to nag me about its progress from time to time.
Many of you are wonderfully talented knitters, crafters, painters, "do-it-all"ers. Some of you have lovely studios where you work/play, others find any corner they can. Here's the question: Do you plan a time to do your projects every day or just pick them up now and again? I'm curious, inquistive (or maybe just plain nosy). The whole creative process fascinates me.
I'd love to hear your answers, or any other thoughts you have to share.
I'm happy to be linking with "Little Red House" for "Mosaic Monday".
