So I have to admit that there has not been a lot of knitting going on around here. Plans for a Dinner Party AND a Bridal Shower have sort of taken up most of my time – not to mention this whole ‘gainful employment’ thing. That seems to always take away from my knitting time. But it keeps me fully funded for yarn, so I guess I can’t complain. :-)

Knitting has almost completely taken a back seat to other things – like housecleaning. Not your normal housecleaning either… Pre-Bridal-Shower/Spring Cleaning.  A week from Sunday, people are coming to my house that have never seen my house before… people that are (apparently) going to bring gifts, as the Bridal Shower is for me. It seemed like it made good sense to make the house look presentable, and get rid of all of the crap we don’t need/use so that we can fit whatever comes through the door. We got rid of about 10 garbage bags of stuff to go to the Salvation Army (!!!)  Part of me wants to say that there is no need to bring gifts – just come over and hang out – I have enough ‘stuff’.  But I’ve been told that I shouldn’t say such things… So I’m writing it instead  ;-)

However, in between all of that organizing and cleaning and purging… I have managed to frog Eleanor (I gave up on her… she had obviously given up on me) and started the Accidental Cowl. (Three times… it is living up to its “Accidental” name…)

It doesn’t look like much now, but it will look like something… someday!

I still love the yarn – Malabrigo Silky Merino.. but it doesn’t frog well, so this is going to have to work out, or this wonderful sikly, woolly yarn will be wasted – and that is unacceptable.

Now it is time for gainful employment!
