I’m having a hard time making heads or tails of my feelings right now… What I never have a hard time talking about is knitting….
1.  I made another pair of mittens.  If by mittens, I’m referring to custom fit, thumbless, fingerless tubes… I’m not interested in thumbs… I like the feeling of just having an extra long wool sleeve on… In fact, I’m sprouting a plan to make extra long wool sleeves…
2.  I made a definitive sweater plan… I know, I know… hard to believe since I’ve made two definitive sweater plans already and no sweater to show for it… But this one, this one is going to be a keeper!
3.  I’m working my way through all the wool that I wound for my trip. So far I’ve done two projects that were intended for the car and cast on a third.  I feel a bit stupid still for not doing it on the trip, but since it’s all rolled into balls now, I’m determined to not have to wind it back up into a skein… After I do my replacement mittens, I’m going to cast on the Spud and Chloe for a hat and then I’ll have finished all the stuff I wound for the trip
4.  I’m going to cast off/finish all my WIPs (except the teal/gray sweater… that one is on going). I don’t want languishing projects hanging around…
5. I need to do a major cleanse/reorg of my stash.  I have a bunch of yarn that isn’t in the stash in Rav, so when I go looking for ideas, it’s not listed… I would like to do this in the daylight so I can properly photograph everything so probably Saturday morning.  Related to this is a need to wind a bunch of balls back into skeins… And I need to figure out how I’m going to get rid of yarn I don’t want… Postage isnt’ the best way because it costs a lot from Canada to anywhere… and giving it away isnt’ really an option because there’s some nice stuff… I will have to ruminate on that a bit…
6.  That’s all I can give you… What I know is that when all of life seems to be conspiring against me… I always have the soft cushiness of knitting to fall back on… and there’s never too many mittens in a girl’s life… I’ll just keep making mittens until I feel better!  Seems like a good plan to me!
