projects. cleaning. and procrastination.

Monkey See, Monkey Do. I found my sock! Amazing what a little organizing can do, huh? I had my best friend's kids overnight on Sunday and as I was cleaning up to get ready for them, I found the monkey sock I had lost. I just finished the fourth repeat on the first sock and as I was working on it today I couldn't help but think of, first, how talented Cookie is to have come up with such a simple yet beautiful lace pattern, and second, how much I would like to come up with my own pattern. Sooo...I'm going to toss around the idea of coming up with something I can call my own...we'll see how successful I am at it.

In other parts of my knitting life...I am still working on the French Market Bag from Knitty and I am continuing to turn out squares for my fuchsia granny square afghan. While I am happy to make the squares the seaming is looming over my head like a big storm cloud. Strangely enough I actually like seaming so I'm not sure why...I'm thinking that I might start seaming it before all of the squares are finished so that the actual project isn't so huge.

Last but not least, I am finishing up the itty bitty sweaters I'm donating to Marly's KAL/CAL prizes. Several posts ago I mentioned that I might put them on etsy, but I have yet to follow through with it. Procrastination is such a difficult thing. It seems like such a brilliant idea at the time, but later, when you really want to see results it comes back and taps you on the shoulder saying, "Um, hello, you decided not to do that when you had the time, remember?" at which point, I usually think, "Oh, hmmm, maybe I should do that now, since I didn't before..." and then proceed to do something else.

Note to self: work on the procrastination thing.

Procrastination isn't always a bad thing!
