Because at least I get to walk away from the house for a while.
oh come on. it wasn't that bad.
No, no… it wasn't. Actually, it went quite well. No bodies to bury in the backyard. I'm just exhausted. My house is a wreck. Bits of stuff everywhere. Every time I clear a surface it gets covered almost instantly. Food, dirty dishes, toy parts, dust… everywhere dust.
I think for the new year I'm going to do a massive clear out. If it's not nailed down or vital for my survival, it's going to be thrown away. Maybe.
you're not throwing away yarn, are you?
Oh, hell no. I'm knitting it up. Look:
waitaminutewaitaminutewaitaminute… you used straights?
I do, on occasion. Don't act as if it's some kind of apocalyptic sign or something. Sheesh.
Notes: I am seriously in like with this yarn. Squishy, soft without not being pillish, and very easy to knit with. Doesn't split. And the colors really pop. Glow. Change depending on the kind of light they're in. You should get you some. I think Mom will like it. I also think I ought to get the ends woven in sometime soon.
So I immediately cast on for another pair of socks. Not mine. And another sweater for HSH. In three days of knitting on it, I'm already divided for the sleeves. When Wendy called this the "quicko-cheapo," she wasn't kidding. I may finish it before she outgrows it.
