I don’t know what has come over me. Maybe it’s the end of the year, or maybe I just got a bit worried after watching an episode of ‘Hoarders’. I’ve been sorting through all the sorts of collections I have at home. It’s amazing how easy it was to rid myself of things I haven’t used in years. There is of course more to go, I haven’t stopped yet. I eagerly await the arrival of a skip, so I can really have at it!
I’ve also been ‘culling’ my Ravelry queue… 25 pages down to 22! Ok, so maybe that needs a bit more work. Whilst it’s not taking up physical space in my life, my knitting dreams can be a bit of a burden. I tried to be honest with myself; no I’m really not going to knit those lacy Opera gloves… but 200 pairs of socks? Sure no problem!
Right now, I’m working feverishly on my ‘Plain and Simple’ top. I’ve resisted the temptation of casting-on some socks so far, but I don’t know for how much longer I can hold out. The ‘Still-light’ a-long begins on January 1… so much knitting, so little time.
On a happier note, I’m all set for Christmas and I’ve avoided much of the ugly crowds. All that is left now is to soak up the season. I hope yours is a happy one.
