I Finished Something...

So my busy time at work is over, and I think I broke my brain in the process. The semi-final big meeting was towards the end of Sept, and then I had to straighten the house for my knitta friends to come over for knitting with wine. I was at the cuff of these socks then. Almost two weeks later, I finally finished these damn socks...

The yarn is truly lovely - it's Lisa Souza, a birthday gift from a dear friend - I'm just such a slow knitter. With knitting ADD to boot. So I've been hopping around project-to-project, avoiding the projects I SHOULD be working on (I haven't forgotten about your baby, John!), because I have the attention span of a gnat right now.

It seems that I blinked after knit night, and suddenly it's 10 days later, and I have guests coming Thursday afternoon to spend a long weekend getting their fix. It'll be a smaller crowd vs last year, but we'll have a grand time (we'll miss you, Lorena, Sharon, Jacquie, Paul, and Soph!). I still have to get the guest rooms ready (aka the rooms where we put stuff until people come over then we run it all up to the attic), and while I was finishing up one guest room I realized I hadn't looked over my stash in a while. Two hours later, I had it all a little better organized and back where it belonged - actually, it was good I did that. Helps me figure out what I'll allow myself at Rhinebeck...in no way am I allowed to get more than 3 skeins of sock yarn, even if it is made of fairy farts and rainbow-pooping unicorns.

So I'm being productive, but in a very random way. Tomorrow I plan on cleaning out the den, which will no doubt mean I'll finally go through that old box of VHS tapes my mom brought up last fall, searching for the ones of our HS marching band, killing even more time in the process. But that'll be good too, since it seems half of CSHS has showed up on Facebook in the last six months. That could explain the wacky reunion dreams I've been having...
