One of the things a person does when the cleaning lady is coming... is to do a little cleaning up beforehand. My mother had a regular cleaning lady when I was in grade school and I remember being awfully put out at still having to make my own bed on the day that she was coming. Pfft. What's a cleaning lady for?
Delighted to have the services of a cleaning lady at my house for a morning last week, I needed to do much, much more than make my bed in preparation! The clutter has a way of piling up around here -- not scary in a "weave your way through towering stacks of newspapers, room carpeted with magazines and trash, hoarding" type of way, but very much in the "I couldn't get the doors of the bookcase open without quite some effort" way.
I dealt with a few things before her arrival, but the bulk of it remained and was then pretty much dumped into my studio/office/room -- and today was the day to begin dealing with that! I'm not finished yet, but was quite successful and I'm happy about that.
I also took some photos of a wrap that's been finished since March! I've had it on my Ravelry project page with only a weird self-portrait taken in the UK last spring -- I wore it almost everyday while we were there -- but never took any other photos.
- Project: Burly (Grey Owl Cowl by Juju Vail, Loop Knit Lounge)
- Yarn: Brown Sheep Burly Spun, super bulky weight, 2 skeins (528 yards), purchased at Patti's Yarn Shop, Green Bay, WI
- Needle: US 15? Possibly 17
- Buttons from Iris Fine Yarns
- Start to Finish: January to March, 2011
I don't really remember why the big gap between start and finish... possibly, it was just needing to shop for buttons. I was motivated to finish before we left on our trip, and had hoped to visit Loop while we were in London. It was not to be, so I'll just have to try again next time!
