Whole Lot of Ripping Going On

About 10 days ago I decided to clean out the yarn room. So, out it all came. Every tub of yarn, projects that were on the bed (okay it is guest room but you would have to "find" the bed under all the yarn and projects to sleep in it), yarn that was in the tall boy dresser and yarn that was on the floor. Books, patterns, magazines. I didn't go through the yarn and projects in the closet - I had to stop somewhere.

And I went through everything. Some of the yarn got moved down to the basement (did I mention I have tubs of yarn down there too?) And I sorted and decided on what things I really wanted to work on.

And then I decided to rip. I ripped out single socks, shawls, cowls, and sweaters. I even ripped out DH's damn sweater for maybe the 6th? time. If I wasn't happy with something - it got ripped out. A whole lot of ripping going on.

So now I am knitting on things I want to finish this year. The first is Lorelei from the Fall 2009 Twist Collective http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/lorelei-5. I am making it in Debbie Bliss Rialto in a lovely purple. I also have a lot of Twist Collective sweaters that I want to knit. I'm thinking that there might be quite a bit of Twist Collective and Habu fall knitting done this year.

Still getting vegetables out of the garden. I have several ears of corn I am watching and hoping I will get to harvest before it starts to turn cold. I have cucumbers finally and an acorn squash. Never got any pumpkins and had to rip them out due to powdery mildew.

Happy Labor Day!

Books read since December 15th:

Oh, my there is alot of ripping happening. I love the Elm Creek books. I just finished the newest one, Aloha Quilt. I have gotten them all on audio. Really pleasant. Good luck with the rest of the year knitting!

Oh my gosh.....I can't imagine how HUGE of a project it was to go through all of your stash! I love the Lorelei sweater too! Hope your shoulder heals well and you are back to knitting soon! :)
