untangled!

I am so fed up with the clutter in this house! It’s time to get rid of some of our junk. Today I managed to come up with a pretty big stack of books that I think we can live without and then I spent several hours cleaning up my hideous yarn mess. There was a big cardboard box of yarn in the closet, and two big project bags full in the living room. I untangled nearly everything, except for a horrible snarl in the middle of the box that just didn’t seem worthwhile (tossed it!), and sorted it all by category and bagged the smaller balls in Ziplocs.

As God is my witness, I’ll never be tangled again. I’ve got a bag full of cottons, one of very special sock yarn, one of worsted scraps, one of hand-spun and hand-dyed yarn, etc. And my Ravelry project bag is empty, so I can take it along to the next Knit @ Night!

Chloe came over and helped untangle everything, and then she ripped out that purple sweater I got sick of, so that’s no longer weighing on my conscience and taking up space.

I found a brand-new size 0 wooden circ that I didn’t know I had! It’s a good long one, so perfect for two-at-a-time socks.

Also, I baked two batches of banana-oat muffins and burned all the fingers on my left hand when I had a little mishap with the muffin pan. Ow!
