I am also breaking down the yarn that all of a sudden seems to have taken over my office again. It has not, it’s just that I’ve taken stuff out of the containers and it is free to look like a future episode of Hoarders – you know, like, the ‘Best of Hoarders.’ I grabbed some yarn that was the start of an afghan I quickly decided against and I have to separate the different blues from each other but once that is done, I will have more than enough to make a hat of blue colors.
So why am I showing you the scarlet though it looks orange hat? Because it was the first one moved from the old folder to the new one. Hey, my logic is my logic and you should be used to it by now.
The unwinding of the yarn from the abandoned afghan will take some time – not a lot of time – but some time and in the past I would have just started knitting and paid the consequences later. One the one hand, I know there would be consequences and I would plow along anyway. On the other hand, it was totally unnecessary when just a little patience and prep work would have meant knitting without consequence – at least without the consequence of detangling old knitting from new. Better to take the time now. Let that be a lesson in more than knitting.
My friend Ruth writes that she will be opening and Etsy store selling vintage jewelry! I can’t wait to see it because I know it will be great. She has one of those golden touch things going on. I know the pieces will be beautiful, I know she will take great photos of them and I know the shop will be successful. I’m trying to guess the name: ‘Beyond Rubies’ as in a woman’s value is beyond rubies. All who know her sings her praises. See, I just gave her an idea. People used to pay me for that.
BTW, there’s a blog roll on the right and it is a list of just some of the blogs I visit and read. As I run across them from the old blog site, I will put them up – there are some new ones as well and they aren’t all knitting related – OK, 99% of them are but knitting is life. If you get the chance, click on one or two. You’ll not only find talented craft folk, but also great photography, good writing and little pieces of other lives that confirm we are all the same with a story to tell and a need to tell it.
Not alone. I like it.
