Unraveled Wednesday

I am happy for to report that I finished a hat last week. I’m not certain that my knitting mojo is back but at least there has been yarn in my hands.

These are my current knitting projects. Not an overwhelming pile. In fact, it is reasonable to think I could finish all of these projects before summer. If only I wasn’t so tempted to start something new! I have started to go through my stash, taking inspiration from Kym about knitting things I will love. I believe at least three of the projects above will be well worn so I am keeping them close at hand. (Stay tuned for some possible unraveling of that 4th project.)

I read Gretchen Rubin’s new book this week. Yup. Another book about cleaning out the clutter. Maybe it is just a message I need to hear over and over. I have a number of empty boxes begging to receive some of that clutter. Now I just need a free weekend since I like to do this kind of work in a big sweep.

Next up in my reading queue is this book recommended by my sister last fall.

Off to check in with Kat.

    1. The Solbein is definitely going to be finished but maybe it will be a winter 2019-20 sweater 🙂 I am about 1/2 done with sleeve number two and then will finish the body. I wanted to get the sleeves done before finishing the body because I am inclined to go solid grey, no colorwork at the hips please, and I wanted to be sure I have enough yarn. My sister flew in last night. Today would have been mom’s 90th birthday so we are going to celebrate with dad and then have some sister time. Finally the weather is better so we hope to go for a hike. Juliann

  1. Glad you’re back to knitting! I’ve been searching for a book….sure hope I didn’t declutter it. Your sis’s book sounds very interesting.

  2. I am happy you are knitting! And, that book your sister suggested…it has shown up in several places for me this week. I think I am going to listen to the universe and put it in my reading queue!

  3. My book group selected The Warmth of Other Suns as our March/April selection. (Because it is a long book, we’ve decided to devote two months to reading/discussing it.) I just started reading it last week — it’s very compelling. I can tell it’s going to be a great read. XO

  4. Warmth of Other Suns is a masterful tome…worth every word! I’m sure you’ll find a weekend or two and in the meantime, tackle a drawer, a 12 ” square space…that’s what I’m doing too, sandwiching in between other projects in progress.

  5. Hurrah for the return of the knitting mojo! I have Rubin’s new book on hold from the library and I’m excited to be inspired to clear clutter.

  6. Yep, my reading list just got longer! Glad you’re knitting again and that you finished your hat. I think there’s a general tendency to want to cast on something new when WIPs have been sitting around for a while. I often use it as a good motivator — no casting on until I finish something already in progress!

  7. love the photo of all the works in progress. You have many!! I just started Gretchen’s happiness project book, sadly I haven’t had much time to read last week or this week but next week I should be back to my regular schedule.
