You know those little projects that only have a few hours to go but you somehow can't bring yourself to work on them? I know the feeling. I have a massively cluttery dresser in my room that should theoretically have (sitting on top of it) a music box that holds all my earrings, a few pictures, and a few of my little sheep but recently it has taken on the responsibility of becoming the new "clutter place". I still have these aforementioned doo-dads on the dresser, but it has also become a shrine to the small UFOs and . A potholder here, a baby sweater there, a partial sock that is so covered with bracelets and watches that it now thinks it's a jewelry box.
So this week I took them down. Not all of them, I still have 2 projects that either need to be finished or dusted, but I'll get to those. I'd like to share with you this week's victories.
1. The potholders. I started these a while ago and kept them in my purse. Then I must have taken them out with the intention of working on them, didn't, and never put them back in the purse. After the potholders were done, I whipped up a couple ball band warshcloths and found a little tea-towel I made a few months ago, and put them together. True, they don't *really* match, but there's enough of a theme that I was able to call the set Gift 3 of 5 of this year's Knit It Forward. I dropped them off to the recipient, who acted very excited to have expanded her hand-made kitchen accessories collection. I just love knitting for other knitters- they get excited over little things like potholders and are so thankful!
