on counting.

…honestly, this is not my strong suit. I don’t remember if I was better at it before I found so many things to distract me. but always I think I’ve counted, re-counted and triple-counted to make sure I have the right number. of stitches. of balls of yarn. of cups of flour. of forks and knives to set the table.
320:365 box 2.

and now it’s boxes. I packed my first five yesterday when I packed up my room. only one box for my stash (it was a big-ish box, but still, just one) and another for knitting bags, and charity projects, and scraps (and needlepoint!) and then three for books and magazines. I still have have another big-ish one to go for my swift and ball-winder and a few other odds and ends, but still. I think six boxes is pretty good for anyone who knits as much as I do!
so I was feeling really good about all that until this afternoon when I was talking about all my yarn being packed away. and what I was knitting. and I realized…
this is all I’m knitting.
321:365 18 days of yarn.

until I unpack.
optimistically, I think this needs to last three weeks.
and then I think, what am I thinking?! I probably won’t even make a dent in this…especially as I’m spending nearly all my time now counting boxes! 

basket. half full.

  1. This will give you great incentive to unpack quickly! Worst case scenario you can always grab a skein of sock yarn from your yarn shop and cast on a pair of socks.

  2. good thing you work in a yarn shop! i hope you properly vetted the movers so that NOTHING happens to this precious cargo!

  3. Yeah, I'm with everyone…you have plenty of other options for more yarn/projects… and I expect your free time is pretty much limited for a few days…have fun!Cheers~

  4. Well. . . it looks like a nice variety, at the least! ๐Ÿ™‚ In my experience, it's hard to knit while moving. . . but it's impossible to move without knitting!
