I don’t know why I’m having so much trouble updating this site. I guess it’s because I haven’t been doing much other than knitting lately, and all my knitting exploits are explained on my About site, so I don’t feel like I have all that much to add here.
I really want that to change. I want to be doing other crafty things, most notably right now sewing and mkaing candles from all the little leftover bits still lying around after the ice storm (which was at the end of January). I’ve been playing with knitting with beads this week, too, so that’s making me want to pull up the beads, too.
My office, while slowly getting better, is still quite a mess, and I think that’s keeping me from wanting to be creative. I feel like I should be working on getting some of the mess out instead of doing something fun. And I probably should be. And I know I’ll be more creative and feel like I have more time for non-work-related crafty endevors once that’s done.
My goal is the end of March. I just made that up, but why not? That’s a good 12 days (if you count today, anyway), which is really a lot of time to sort, purge, clean, organize and get things in better shape. Of course that also means dealing with the five boxes and big stack of books I don’t want anymore, finding a better place to store finished objects I’m not using (or, failing that, finally opening that Etsy store I’ve been thinking about for a year or so) and rearranging the massive number of knitting books I have so that I could actually find the book I was looking for if I were looking for something.
I don’t know if it’s possible to make all the progress I’d like in 12 days, but maybe having announced a goal will get me motivated to work a little harder on it than I have been. I’ll let you know how it works out.
