Home again, home again

How on earth can one person accumulate not only enough stuff to pretty much fill a 5X10 storage space, but also the back of the Explorer plus the 2-seat fold-down? The Daughter is home, and we got her moved out and checked out of East Ambler Johnston at VT with about 10 minutes to spare. Some of us do well with deadlines. And we have almost 3 months before we get to do it all again!

But it was beautiful in Blacksburg-- the mountains never fail to inspire me, and the weather was great. And I had plenty time to knit on the road.

I'm almost 1/2 done with the top. That means I have more than 1/2 to go. In stockinette. Just stockinette. Rows and Rows and Rows of it. I know-- who was the one who chose this project? and who loves the colors? and who gets to wear it when it's done?

I had a discussion with Holly about being a project knitter or a process knitter. My problem is that by nature I fly from one thing to the other, and without a huge amount of discipline (meaning looking at my stash and dreaming instead of starting something new) I would NEVER finish ANYTHING. So I moan. But it feels so good when it's over.

And if that ain't motivation to keep on keepin' on, I don't know what is.

Yay for The Daughter being home long enough to enjoy her, but ostensibly not long enough to make you crazy! :)

Missed you at MDSW, but perhaps next year you can come enable me, since clearly I was naieve (sp?) this year and went with entirely too little cash and plastic in the pocket. :)

I know all about the crafter's ADD - I've got it in spades. But then, you knew that, as you've seen the amalgam of WIPs in my knitting bag. :)

See you at Late Night, perhaps? I am going to try like heck to go tomorrow night.

Welcome home, Daughter! =)

Laura, glad we found your blog. I'll be fun catching up with you more often.
