Yep, still kickin’

I just can’t believe how fast life goes sometimes. You blink and *POOF* it’s October! So I’m starting to feel the knitting mojo again and have picked up my Aeolian Shawl and have been working on it. Because it has beads, it takes me about 45 mins per front row. So I try to squeeze a row in every lunch hour. So far so good 🙂 I should have pics soon. I tried to take some earlier this week, but I was in a rush and they turned out crappy. Sooooo, retakes will commence soon.

I have decided that my mitered square blanket is going to be my life long project. I love it! But HOLY COW!!! it gets boring doing the same thing for 80 squares. So I pick it up from time to time and work on it. Once it’s done it will be gorgeous!!!

I have a few other projects I want to start but have put them aside for now. I want to finish my shawl first.

In other yarnie news…since I’ve learned to knit, I have acquired a yarn stash….I know….DUH!!!! And then working at Heavenly Creations for over a year I had access to alot of yarn at great prices. So my stash grew even bigger. Well…..on my Ravelry stash I have had this ball of Helen’s Lace in the Aslan colorway up for sale. Well, someone finally bought it, mailed me a check (that I’ll be putting in the bank today) and then I’ll ship it out once the check clears. So I knew the check would be coming and the time was nearing for me to ship this out. So last night I went to pull the ball of lace out. I couldn’t remember where I put it so I peaked at my Rav Stash notes and it says it’s in the tote. **thinks to self*** okay, I know where the tote is….pick up tote….dump it on my bed….dig through pile of sock yarn and lace… I CAN’T FIND IT!!! (GASP) So I put everything back in the tote and go get the 3 giant baskets of yarn in my room and procede to dump them one by one and go through them….NOTHING!!! I STILL CAN’T FIND IT!!! So I am now in my closet pulling bag upon bag of yarn out (gosh there’s alot) and then I dump them all out and still…NO HELEN’S LACE!!! (gulp)

So I sit on the floor (since the bed has been eaten by yarn) to think. Where on earth did this ball of yarn goto. By the end of the night (11:30 p.m.) I have completely cleaned my room, reorganized my yarn , and tidied up my closet. Surrendurring for the night after reclaiming my bed, I hop up to walk to the living room and stop. The thought hits me to look in the desk….the sewing desk. So as quiet as I can, here I am…opening and going through all of the drawers in the desk. There are 10 long, deep drawers on this bad boy. In drawer #8…there it is! The ball of Helen’s Lace I have searched alllllll night for. Whew! I wonder how it got there? Maybe Fred the ghost thought it would be funny to play a joke on me. I’m just glad I found it.

So now I have come to realize:
1. My room was out of control!
2. It only takes one ball of hidden yarn to get me to clean my disaster of a room
3. I have 6 bags (or more) of 6 different colors of yarn to make sweaters
4. I need a new organization method to store my yarn

    Thanks for the comment! I’m glad someone out there still reads and enjoys my blog – even with my serious lack of posting lately…

    I’m a mess, too… I got one of those cube shelving things from Ikea to keep organized and it works pretty well. I always end up with piles of yarn random places, though. Glad you found the yarn!
