Starting to write again; trying to follow through on things and finish those I begin knitting; finally getting round to projects that have been on my To Knit list for as long as I've been knitting... What better place to start than my work basket?
I have essays to write and exams looming and when I haven't done enough work in a day I feel as if I'm walking around with a cloud on a string, like a small child with a helium balloon tied to its wrist, only a fair bit less exuberant. My knitting has been a little like that too, for longer than I care to think about. Whenever I get excited about a new project, I stumble across my basket full of unfinished and determinedly unmentioned projects, sternly tell myself that I can't knit anything else until I've dealt with the unfinished muddle, and assuredly sooner or later the shiny new knit joins its sad cousins in the basket.
It's a new year full of plans, I turned 25 a few weeks ago, things are changing rapidly all around me and I think it's about time I faced up to a few things around here.
I really don't want to lose hold of this little space and all the joy it has given me (however sporadic a blog poster and lax a blog friend I may be) so I'm going to document this spring clean here.
Please excuse me while I rip, wash and sort out my crumpled knitting in public. I'm hoping much good will come of it, and I'd love to have you there to talk to along the way.
