If I told you I had a foolproof way to get your house clean, would you believe me? Here it is:
Just watch Hoarders on A & E.
It’s horrifying and sad. On the episode we watched last night, the lady was an excellent knitter. They were making her get rid of some of her knitting needles. They told her she didn’t need that many. What?!? Then they found a whole box of Addi Turbos and she got rid of them. I was yelling at the TV. My Hero even thought that was wrong. (I have him so brainwashed!!!) Just clean her house and let her knit. Then she’ll be happy!
Anyway…I’m cleaning my yarn bedroom today!
Speaking of knitting, (were we speaking of knitting?) I did get some knitting done at Sock Camp! We stopped at Churchmouse Yarns & Teas. What a fabulous shop! The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. They also had great, wearable projects. I bought the yarn and pattern for this scarf.
This is Barb’s Koigu Ruffle Scarf and it’s not Koigu! It’s Socks That Rock in Koi Pond. I found out really quickly when I got to camp that I wasn’t going to be able to knit lace in the middle of all the craziness. It was a fun, brainless pattern, and I’m planning to knit another one with Koigu!
This weekend I worked on a lace shawl for Ms In Charge. I started over three times. That’s a saga for another day. I only have a week to make it, so I’m knitting like crazy!
I’d better get back to my yarn mess, before someone nominates me for Hoarders. In my defense, I don’t have garbage, rotting food, or dead cats in the middle of the mess! Maybe I should quit watching the show. It’s really disturbing. It’s great motivation though!
I love to clean!?!
