My plan for Mother's Day went well, although next year I must remember to clean the entire house (and not just the bathrooms) in preparation for my big day. It was hard to relax with all the clutter around. Also, I had to kill a centipede while Larry was out. I left the carcass for him to dispose of, however.
I did succeed in pulling out all my yarn stash and rearranging it and putting it all away again. I also untangled my half-finished projects, sorted my needles, and emptied out all my knitting bags.
(Believe it or not, non-knitters, this was a fun activity. I've been looking forward to it. And, I found a York Peppermint Patty in one of the bags. Bonus!)
You see, I have big plans this week, my friends, BIG plans. As soon as my size 0 40" circulars arrive (in 4-5 business days), I am going to learn to knit socks 2-at-a-time from the toe up.
I know! You're as excited as I am, I'm sure.
So! After opening the chocolate Larry gave me this morning (and duly sharing it with some very greedy children), I went to the bookstore where, pretending my beloved had bought me a gift card, I procured this book.
I feel as if a whole new life awaits me. A life where I can actually finish more than one pair of socks a year...a life where my stash of sock yarn will diminish to the point of my being justified in buying more...a life, in fact, where I might actually deliver on my year-old promise of a pair of homemade socks for my sweet, trusting 7-year-old daughter.
In short? A life without shame...
