Swatching is just no good for me. Georgie is done. Coraline is done (full post with photos later). It's time to start a new sweater. I pulled out my Sundara Silky Merino and wound a skein. I pulled out my needle case which was a mess. I decided to be good and get it all organized. After putting away all my needles I still couldn't find my US6 Addi Lace needles. Hmmm. I went into the disaster area known as my office. The needles, I decided, must be in here. Once I started pulling stuff out I had to keep going. I pulled out my entire yarn stash. I went through it all, reorganizing, bagging things up to protect from moths, tossing a few things that had not been protected. I pulled out every project bag in the house. I went through them all. When it was all over it was midnight and I had a much more organized office (fabric stash will have to be next) but still no needle for my swatch and no time left to knit.
This morning as I was getting my older son ready for his first day of middle school (!) I walked by a bag full of class supplies from Sock Summit. And in the bag? My size 6 Addi Lace needles! But it doesn't matter now because once I had gathered all my Cascade 220 scraps in one place last night I realized I needed to start a Fish Hat immediately.
