This is a public apology to my dear, sweet mother, who last year so generously bestowed my children with hats, one of which was grievously maligned in my last post. Doh! But I must make the disclaimer that they were not her handiwork. They hailed from a local craft fair.
The end of the year purge continues and has moved on from the yarn cabinet to the attic. We have/had way too much
crap stuff which we saved for reasons unbeknown, even to us. I mean, come on, were my old uniforms ever going to be worn again? In the midst of some mid-life crisis was playing the clarinet ever going to be a resumed hobby? Let’s hope not. Anyway, it’s all out on eBay and hopefully destined for new homes.
Speaking of purging, several hideous FO’s have been frogged back to yarn.
When the bag containing these deformed freaks of the knitting world was pulled out it revealed a shocking secret. An alarming amount of novelty yarn has accumulated in my stash. I honestly don’t remember buying it. Anyway, the offending fiber has been bagged up and set aside for my daughters. They can craft with it… or better yet, give it to friends.
Speaking of daughters, last night while working in the office I saw something move past the door which caused me to do a double take. A3 had decided that she needed a crash helmet for safety reasons.
Of course the irony of this being that her lack of vision caused by the protective headgear was responsible for her crashing into things. Doh! I especially like the Magnetix stuck to the top of the tin, they add nicely to the aesthetics. Hope you’re all enjoying your last weekend of 2007.
