Nothing to See Here...

There is so little that is blogworthy right now. Which shows you how arrogant I must be by writing about that nothing that is going on in my life.

I'm knitting up a storm on Special Secret Project #2, and I have to be honest here. I'm tired of knitting it. In a normal, non-deadlined environment, I'd be putting this puppy aside for a while. But I must not falter - I have to finish by the end of February so I can play with pretty sock yarn in March.

During my slight bout with knitting ADD last night, I picked out and wound up yarn for the sock-along that I'll be participating in next month. We'll be making Monkey, and I chose lovely Rocket Yarn in Little Green Men. I love this yarn! Granted, I've been dealing with worsted cotton and acrylics since November, so this is kind of like handing me a plate of macaroni-n-cheese after being on a bran diet, but it really is lovely yarn. I had an unfortunate incident in winding Ball #2 (my swift doesn't clamp, and my winder has been acting funny), so I have a bit of untangling to do. But I'm patient with The Precious.

Other than that, I've been watching the cats look cute...

Coz, trying his best to capture all the heat he can.



And sweet Dobby, showing everyone how he wraps Mommy around his little finger.

I also spent the weekend finally digging into and reorganizing my stash...

Yes, these drawers are in the hallway. But that's part of the process - we're finally going to make the Bastard Room into a real room - you know, with paint, and shelves, and not just a bunch of boxes on the floor. It's a small room, and it'll be cheap to fix up - makes me feel like we're making progress with the house without going into deeper debt. Those things are important.

I still have a good bit of sweater yarn that didn't fit into these, but I think I made progress. And just look at the sock yarn lovelies...

...sigh. I can't wait to knit socks again. I might not ever stop.

"my swift doesn't clamp, and my winder has been acting funny" - I think they have a medication for that now. Perhaps you should see a doctor...Hahahahaha!

Look on the bright side - if nothing blogworthy is happening, then hopefully your stress/chaos level is ultra-low. Enjoy it!

Have a great day!

What is the difference between sock yarn and sweater yarn? I find the world of knitting fascinating. But not enough for me to actually learn how. Maybe when my kids are in college.

Also, that is a very sexy picture of a sock! (And a really cool sock, too.)

Your cats are always blog worthy!! ;-)

Love how you organized your stash. Bet it's a lot easier to get to know, huh?
