I Have A WIP Problem

Spring has sprung and I have been cleaning organizing. I got my to bedroom and discovered I might have a WIP problem…..

In this pile are two blankets (long term), enough yarn for three shawls, three pairs of socks, several random cakes of yarn for hats one glove project….oh and a knitted knocker.

I think I need to dust some of these off and either Finish or Frog. But not today George, lol. I think I’ll just knit in another room…

Happy Knitting!!

Lost Knitting Bag….Send Help

My house is not cluttered and messy but relatively clean. Between a husband, dog and two kids I have given up temporarily the hopes of a tidy home. As long as it’s relatively germ free and I can occasionally see the carpet I’m calling it a win.

But last night I lose my sh*t. I had left a project bag with my Progression Shawl on the basement couch. Where no one but I rarely sit. And this morning it is magically gone. Like POOF and disappeared. No one is claiming to have seen or to have moved it.

I’ve looked in all the usual places and still cannot find it anywhere. It is literally giving me anxiety. Must have been the karmic balancing to my quiet self care night earlier this week. I have to get to work now so I can’t keep looking.

I’m not ready to call in the National Guard as its not a disaster. But momma ain’t happy!! I have a feeling the whole family is going to help organize the basement tonight after supper….

Viva La Vacation!!!

Today marks the beginning of 10 days of freedom from the big kid job!!! I have to take five consecutive business days once a year and since we have the new house I couldn’t think of a better time. I have a mini vacation to-do list:

1. Visit my best friend who also just bought a new house and is expecting her first baby later this year

2. Visit my college friends who had a baby 2 months ago and whom I have not yet visited (I’m a terrible friend)

3. Start Stashbustin #15 and work at least two color stripes

4. Finish my Snug baby sweater (Stashbustin’ #16)

5. Finish my Mud Season #2 sweater (Stashbustin’ #17)

6. Walk 2 miles a day with the puppies

7. Get back to my regular Mon/Wed/Sat classes at the Gym….I really miss my fitness ladies

8. Start the set up of my craft room….my very own craft room!!! (I don’t have all the necessary storage devices as we are bit tight in our budget and can’t afford them yet. But I need to do some cleaning and sorting before I get to putting away anyway)

I may or may not get all this done….but I like having goals that stretch me. Wish me luck!!!
