But, this bliss didn't just fall into my lap. There were many other failed attempts with scarf patterns, and hours upon hours looking for a new sweater pattern for my husband. Sometimes it just seems like it will never come together.
It all started recently when I cleaned out my stash. That meant ripping out failed projects, including a couple sweaters near completion, rewinding the yarn, packing it all in clear zipper bags for another day. I also collected a large bag of yarn to donate to the church knitting group, and lined up all my small projects so I can "go shopping" in my stash when I want to pick up something quick and fun. I was a little perturbed by the pile of empty needle cases which didn't match up with the pile of circular needles but oh well.
All this organizing clears my head and helps me start fresh with some new projects. I'm knitting quickly. I've got lots of plans for all that yarn I already have.
