That's the day the contest ends. Have you entered yet? Look around and see what you haven't thrown away for years, or let me know what you have thrown away that was kept an insanely long time. If you do that on this blog entry, you'll both make me feel better about my own packrat tendencies, and you'll be entered for my contest! I'm going to let it run for a week, which should be ended on Monday then, and then I'll do the drawing for loot! I've enjoyed the entries so far a great deal, even though my plan of no crafting/just cleaning hasn't happened. Hehheh. I was doubtful of that plan before it even got underway...
I am exactly six things behind on my list of things that should have been done by now, and I haven't even added the knitting items! Those are more fun to talk about, though. I'm remaking the Hermione mittens, actually going down two needle sizes, so they'll fit my daughter. They should be warm, warm, warm... Last year she doubled up on her hats and mittens, wearing two at a time, poor little muffin. Her hands shall be warm this year, if I have to felt mittens myself! (No. I'm lying. If it comes to that, I'm taking them to mom...)
I never finished my Interweave Bonsai tunic, since I haven't lost the seven pounds that might give me a chance of looking good in it. I carry weight, well, all over, but right in the belly is what would be the problem with this tunic. It's so pretty! But it is not fun imagining it finished, if I can't wear it...
The husband's sweater from last year needs to be washed and blocked! But I'm scared... I have blocking issues. What if it blows up to be huge?? I didn't understand about washing your gauge then, your Honor... How do I get out of this problem?
So, in a head nod to procrastinators everywhere, in carrying on the grand and noble tradition of denial, I'll be taking my spinning to soccer practice. It just looks so cool.
