I'm guessing we are not the only ones with such a room in our house - you know, the one that is easily the most out of sight of anyone, where it's convenient to leave things to be "dealt with later." Then all of a sudden, you can barely make your way through it, and well, forget actually finding anything!
A couple of weeks ago, I bought one of those cubbyhole-organizer type things, with the idea that I could organize my stash there. Meaning that I would be able to actually SEE what I have, and [in theory] not buy a lot more until I'd made space by actually knitting some of it! I put the organizer thing together last weekend, and set it where I want it to go, and then quit. I'd just had it, and the thought of even organizing it made me want to harm someone (other than myself).
So that, my friends, is how I'll be spending Labor Day. The Tim has to work during the day, so I'm going to try and really work on my stash and that room. I figure if I start early in the morning, and give myself permission to take a couple of small breaks, I'll make a dent, even if I have intensive snooper-vision from Jetsam and Pip. My ultimate goal is for the room to be nice-looking and actually usable! I have decided that it must be entirely finished by the end of November. Since we wrap holiday packages in there, it needs to have available space.
The fact that it is supposed to be rainy tomorrow will only help with my plan. And then I'll make a picnic-y dinner for us to have, so we'll still get to have a little Labor Day celebration.
Is it weird that I'm really looking forward to all of this? 'Cause I am.
Here's hoping that your Labor Day is as nice as you are hoping it will be.
