The new year comes with new beginnings. A fresh chance to get life right ......... this year.
So I start the year with the inveterate lists.
But one goal that I am uber-determined to achieve is this one.
Make 52 items for Honey, myself or our home.
I have a "nest" where I sit in the evening or during the day ..... I am surrounded by yarn, embroidery floss, felt and fiber. I move from embroidering to spinning to knitting. Constantly doing "something".
But we recently bought a package of tube socks while I have no less than 10 skeins of sock yarn in my stash. I bought a couple of sweaters when there is enough yarn for two sweaters .... just sitting there.
And maybe its selfish but I like the stuff I have been creating ...and I want some for me!!!!
Ya know I recently bought a new sewing machine and I LOVE it!!! But it is going to be nothing more than an over-priced paperweight if I just let it sit.
So the year of 52 items has begun......
The polar vortex came and I decided I needed a new cowl to go with my "Damn!-it-is-cold-out-there" coat. So a new mobius came out of some Noro that I had stashed.
I really like the colors.
And for the home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A tea towel!
There are more projects in the works that I will show you later ........
Including a pair of socks ...
Does completing projects for "us" count ... knitting stash .... count as purging stuff???
Or does it count as bringing more sh*t in???????
