Destashing my life...

No, no yarn for sale. I'm going to pack up some yarn that I have no idea what to do with and send it to Winter's Mill High School's knitting club. Here's the damage, while most of it is odds and ends from projects, there's about 10 whole skeins of yarnage. Lots of variety, from alpaca and acrylic to indie dyed sock yarn:

I destashed my closet last week. That was an ugly sight. It's amazing how many things I have that I don't use. I am going to take the clothing to consignment and Goodwill. Though I end up buying things at places like that. Though I can't complain about spending $5.75 on last week's haul: gorgeous Gap trouser jeans in a dark wash and bugle bead edged black Mossimo flip flops.

My mantra lately is "simplify, simplify, simplify". I read in a book on women and money (of the same title Women & Money by Suze Orman, see below with Besotted..) that being surrounded by things that are worthless to us makes us feel worthless. I can understand that.

Here is the long awaited contents of my Ravelry Summer Camp swap package. Minus the food. I don't know what happened to that.

And here's the other skein of Malabrigo, cast on for the Besotted Scarf. The picture is not true to color.

Oooh, a peeking out Hogwart's Sock Swap Sock!

In this corner, finished objects:

Pawprint washcloth:

Love me some Madelinetosh sock yarn. Yummy stuff. I hope my pal enjoys these socks. I think they're gorgeous.

I've been attacked by a vicious yarn cat. Is there any remedy?

I can relate to being surrounded by worthlessness and feeling worthless, espeically lately. I feel as if I live in a worthless place and I therefore feel the most worthless I have ever felt. I need added value to my life.

Hi Camille! Will you please email me with your email address? Blogger won't show me email addresses from secret pals who leave me comments ;D

And you're right - you can never have too many pawprint dishcloths, especially if they are as cute as the one you just made!

Pretty socks. Great way to de-stash.

I have finally settled on yarn and a pattern for your socks. Now, gauge and needle size...

Sock it to Me pal
