Yarn Along – 5/20/15
Laura’s Blog Entry
Last time on the Yarn Along…
I was going to try to finish my Aise shawl in a week. Well, it took me two weeks, but it is finished and blocked! I’ll do a separate entry for that in the next few days. What is yarning along right now is my Another Door Opens Shawl.
Pattern is by Sara Bauer. Yarn is Yarn is Manos del Uruguay Fino in color 404, Watered Silk. I am at 60%. All is going well, but the rows are getting longer and slower.
I finally caved in and bought The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo. The library wait is 247 holds on 97 copies! Even though we did a total purge for our move two years ago, I do struggle with accumulation. And saving things that might be useful. Lots of people (and I mean lots) on podcasts and blogs are having wonderful experiences applying Marie’s method, so I thought I would give the book a try.
Just reading for the moment. I’ll purge later in the summer. It’s an easy read and it does fire you up to make changes.
