It's been forever...

It's been forever since I last blogged. Not sure why. There's been enough going on that I should have been writing . Just got busy I guess.

I went to Inverness, CA with my sister one weekend. She had a wedding to go to. I went along as chauffeur and room mate. While she was at the wedding I hung out at the Inn where we were staying and spun and knit. It was wonderful. I finally finished the sleeves of a sweater I had been working on for a while. Now I just need to weave in the ends and give it a bath.

I don't know why but Fall is the time where I want to do projects but either don't have the time to do them or the money. I have a big list of projects I'd like to have done. Some of it is around the house stuff, like painting some of the rooms, ripping out carpet and replacing with radiant heating and bamboo floors (downstairs) and re doing our closet. It's a walk-in that is not very efficient. I'd love to be able to hire one of those companies like California Closets to do the re-do. Other stuff is fiber related. I have a bunch of dying projects that I like to work on, a sock blank from Nancy and a sweater over dye. And there is always spinning and plying and knitting. I was rearranging my stash last spring and found that I had about 20 oz of beautiful purple BFL from Mim. I finished the first skein of yarn and I'd like to knit up into a sweater.

I'm also trying to get rid of clutter. One Monday I cleaned out and rearranged the TV room to make it much more user friendly. Now I have to get rid of all the junk I pulled out. I don't know why it is so hard to get rid of the stuff. It's so easy to bring it in.
