Advantages to outtages.

In a delightfully surprising twist,  in light of recent events, my life is much more organized and sedate than I would ever have thought it could be after living for 5 days without electricity. Mind you, I didn’t have it that badly, in fact I had it pretty darned good. I currently have 6 felted hats drying on my dining room table and    scarves drying in the livingroom. I managed to knit 3 new hat patterns and crochet one.

I’ve gone through my craft books and made much needed decisions about what I can realistically spend time learning and doing. I dropped off two boxes at the local thrift store this morning on my way to work. I believe that they will find good homes.  I’ve decided not to buy any new yarns until I have worked through at least 2/3 of my stash. Now that I know I want to become accomplished at spinning it will be less of a distraction if I don’t have totes of yarns hanging about the house.  What I don’t sell in my online studio by the 1st of next year, or at the craft fair I am doing the Saturday before Thanksgiving I will happily donate.

This organizing bug popped up out of nowhere, but I’m very glad that it did. I think that I’m almost focussed on my goals and this makes so many things calmer in my life. Disorganization = chaos and I like to be somewhat relaxed when I can manage it. Just knowing that I have a decent selection of items to offer the public weekend after next makes sleeping so much easier.

  1. Your hats are beautiful!

    • Thank you so much. They are sinfully easy to knit also.

  2. The organizing bug hits me from time to time, but it never stays long. 🙂

    • Yes, mine is a somewhat elusive creature too. LOL
