I had to tidy my house and tuck away the things that were nutsy. there still is a very large series of piles that need to find their proper home, but each time I clean, that pile gets smaller and more things find proper homes.
The work I did in my wool room the last while, has made a real difference. I could tuck everything into the wool room and it still looks ordered. It might be crowded but you can walk to the far end. Perfect.
I managed to find decent muffins without having to go into Cobs Bakery. Some things are better left unknown. It is way to close to me for comfort.
I have realized I should probably have a tea kettle. Pouring from a pot is just weird.
We knit and had tea and then went to the yarn store down the road. That is also too close for comfort. But I have already been in there and really it is quite perfect.
And then I knit a little on what I picked up the yarn store.
This isn't stash. Honest it isn't. I needed it to work up a nice warm chunky vest. I had 4 packages of Prairie Wool, the really chunky stuff that works wonderfully for Cowichan sweaters from Custom Woolen Mills, but not enough for what I wanted.
I had to laugh at myself over this. My chilly office is really really driving my knitting. I hate knitting really chunky things, it is so hard on my hands, but I could not stop myself from starting this. I am going to work this a few rows at a time so my hands don't get hurt from working on it. Its going to be one of those sweaters that just magically is finished and I don't really feel I worked on it at all.
