<p>Knitting, as you all know,&#160;takes planning.&#160; First, you find the pattern.&#160; Possibly you stumble across it, it finds you or your best friend throws a magazine at you in Barnes &amp; Noble while informing you that you Must. Knit. This.&#160; Either way, you have a pattern.&#160; Then you find the yarn and the right size needles.&#160; Or, you find the yarn first and wait ’til it ‘speaks’ to you.&#160; Perhaps you find a lot of different kinds of yarn and wait ’til it ‘speaks’ to you.&#160; Perhaps your family thinks your crazy and wants to put you away because you think wool can talk.</p>
<p>…which is kinda my situation.&#160; (Except, I suspect the teenager wants to put me away so she can run amok.)</p>
<p>I&#160;*might* have a stash issue.&#160; But that’s not what this post is about.</p>
<p>This post is about planning.&#160; Or…forgetting to plan.</p>
<p><a href="uploads/Photos/7-26-2006018.jpg"><img width="175" height="131" src="uploads/Photos/7-26-2006018.serendipityThumb.jpg" style="border: 0px none ; padding-right: 5px; padding-left: 5px; float: left;" alt="" /></a>Sometimes you need to put the same amount of planning into un-knitting that you put into knitting.&#160;&#160;Sometimes you need to clear your schedule for a minimum of an hour if you’re going to rip out a short-row heel all willy-nilly&#160;and have a pile of yarn in your lap.</p>
<p>…and if you forget to clear your schedule…or if you’re too pissed off at your knitting and must. rip. now.&#160; …make sure you pee before ripping ‘cuz once you have that lapful of yarn, there’s no going back.&#160; Moving it just isn’t an option.&#160; At least, not an easy one.</p>
<p>…don’t ask how I have this knowledge…just take my word for it, m’kay?</p>

    2016 stitch-along from The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery

  • StoryTime Sampler 3 February 2016

    I don’t know if this project will stay here, but I wanted a spot to put all of my photos for the current sampler I’m cross stitching.

    02-03-2016

    I’ve put this on ‘hibernating’ status since I’m trying to decide what to do - I kind of want to pick my favorite 6 and make a mini sampler since there are some books in the mix that aren’t my favorites
