A weekend of accomplishments

What a rare and wondrous thing! I feel like a lot got done this weekend and I don't feel exhausted. Friday night was Yarn Yoga and I worked on both the feather and fan shawl and the store sample stole that have both been on the needles for way too long. I was pretty tired, so I ended up leaving a little early and heading home.

Saturday we had hubby's family over for a work day. After the water fiasco in January we had cleaned out most of the garage, but there was still a bunch of stuff that needed to go. Most of it was donation stuff rather than garbage stuff. Two loads of stuff went down the road to the Value Village! The extra coffee table finally made it's way to his brother's house! The car once again resides in the garage! My half of the garage is still too full to park my car in there, but that's OK with me for now. We have to figure out what to do with the three bicycles that are in there before both cars will fit.

Sunday I sorted my stash. A while ago I decided I needed to get a grip on the scope of the problem. I moved almost all of my stash and UFOs to the spare room. Saturday night and Sunday were spent sorting and organizing. I'm not finished, but it's much better. And I have much to donate at guild next week. When I was mostly done for the day I showed my hubby how much work I'd done. He looked at me sideways and told me that I could get kicked out of the club for showing him the whole stash. :-)

Also on Sunday I finished the store sample stole! It's taken me 6 months and was mostly an endurance contest, but it is finally done. It's in the car and ready to be delivered to the store tonight after work. There are no pictures. We've hit the season of little light and most of it bad for photos. Also on the finished list are 3 cotton wash cloths that were done but for the weaving in of ends. I did that too.

I did cast on a Koolhaas hat, but it doesn't qualify as a new project. It's the second half of a UFO. The first half was to spin the llama yarn for a friend. Now turning the yarn into a hat is part 2. Still waiting to see if the fuzziness of the yarn works with the pattern. I've also picked up a pair of socks that have been languishing at the bottom of my bag, so progress continues. I plan to continue to work on UFOs for a while. I have plenty to keep me busy at least until January. We'll see if I continue the ban on new projects after the new year. On that note, I feel a disturbance in the force. ROE may make it out of the 'I still hate you' pile before long. :-)

Hang on a minute here -- you showed him the ~whole~ stash?

I think I'm going to have to report you, missy.
