I should tidy up more often...

So I cleaned out one of my knitting corners this past weekend. It was starting to overflow in to actual living space well, overflow MORE than usual...) so I decided to pack up a few potential projects and move them.

This is what I found: 4 socks on the go. I had remembered two of them, and two were surprises.

Clockwise from top:
Kertzer Bamboo in pale and medium grey. The pale grey 100g ball was not enough for the foot length and requested length of shin for my FIL, so I had to add the darker medium grey at the top. These have been my travel socks for a while that were temporarily displaced by the baby knitting. I knew about these.

Mary Maxim Bamboo Stripes in a rust/green/blue multi stripe. I was working on these in Florida in December, and then promptly forgot about them once I got home. This bamboo yarn is no where near as robust as the Kertzer, so I am not sure how well these will wear. They seem a bit flimsy, so I may end up keeping them for myself. What a shame.

At the bottom - this is embarrassing - Helga gifted me with this Opal yarn, and I love, love, love it, but it got lost in the shuffle a few weeks back. These are definitely for me, and have moved to the top of the pile for immediate knitting. I knew about them, but couldn't remember where they were.

Last but not least, a complete sock and a toe of Regia Galaxy. Not sure when these were started. I'm not a huge fan of Regia yarns, but they are good workhorse type socks, and will be appreciated by someone. I'll finish these eventually, and they will go in the box for Christmas gifts.

Maybe I shouldn't le things pile up so much. I wonder what I'll find in the next room I go after...

1. LOVE your project bags - you made those yourself, didn't you?

2. Also love the holders you've got - tell me you didn't make those, too?

3. As adverse as I am to cleaning the house (the dog hair dinosaurs under the couch will confirm), there are occasional perks - being able to see out the windows again, lessening of allergies, finding knitting...

Heh, I need to clean too, but I am unlikely to find any forgotten knitting. Forgotten floor space maybe...

Nothing like shopping all over again in your own stash!
