One of the things that happens when you start to sort and clean is finding an amazing number of things that need to go and live somewhere else.
Take for example this shawl –
which I knit late in 2011 and managed to use up a lot of yarn (over 2000 meters) worth. I loved knitting it, the Shadow knit pattern was interesting but the colors were just not mine. So it got hauled around a bit, occasionally worn but mostly it hung out on the shelf.
On Friday, after having lunch with a friend we came back to the house. I was tossing things out of the closet and she said – that does not go out – it is beautiful. Her colors, and it went home with her.
So now I just have to go back to the garage, make a place for a few hundred books. Organize the sewing room, find another place for a couple of dozen puzzles…
Nap time sounds so much better.
