Kick Back . . .

And wait for winter to end (have I mentioned how much I loathe winter?).  At least my socks will keep me cosy. 
Cozy Toes
And remember that messy knitting table?  Not very pretty--not even a little bit.  Too much stuff: half-finished projects, bits of yarn, needles and hooks, patterns . . . well, you get the picture. 


That mess got me thinking about staying organized--even just a little bit.  So I tidied up (Let me reassure you its a rare event, but the cleaning bug does occasionally hit when I least expect it).  So now my knitting table looks acceptable.  At least there's room for a drink (should someone need to imbibe in the occasional alcoholic beverage). 

Not-So Messy

After all that tidying up, guess what I found?  My knittin' mojo (Who knew it'd be buried under all that stuff?).  Don't know how long it'll last, but I'm gonna take advantage and finish up as much as I can.  There's a vest that needs finishing and I just started a blanket for charity.  And maybe I can cast on for that second pair of worsted socks (they can be my lunch-time knitting).  I also have another project simmering in my brain (that involves my couch) . . . lots to do and think about.

For now, back to my knitting.  Have a great weekend :)


  1. oh how i love those yummy socks!

    and i wish i would be struck by your tidying bug -- i've got stuff in quite a mess around here, and it's not just knitting stuff!

  2. Good job on the cleanup. You could take it one step further and "contain" those categories. A small basket for the CD's and player, a pretty mug or bowl for the writing instruments and a tray or low basket for the needles.
    Sorry, couldn't resist, I'm a professional organizer, what can I say?

  3. LOL Knitinsage, I don't wanna mislead, but I'm not exactly very tidy. Only my knitting table is tidy at the moment. :)

  4. Oh good suggestions Simple Effects! I like the idea of a mug or small container for the pens and pencils (as long as my boys don't "borrow" them). And maybe I can look 'round for a basket for the CDs (bet I've already got something in the house). My needles just need to go back in my storage tower. Thanks again for the suggestions :)
