I have been going through a major clean and purge for the past month. I don’t know what it is about the autumn that seems to bring it out in me. Maybe because I am indoors a bit more? I took a before picture of my home work space, but I may not be able to bring myself to show it to you. I hang my head with shame when I see it. Maybe I’ll wait till there is a before and after. I’m getting there. I have donated three full bags, contractor-size, of nice yarn. I have plenty left, believe me. (I have not gone the full Konmari, but fall somewhere between there and the KayAnn method.)
In a file of textile crapola, I found this:
No idea where it came from, or how long I have had it. It appeared to be mimeographed. (Just kidding, probably on a Selectric.) It went into the recycling bin, along with so much more. This was also in the file, and I will keep it. I still have the yarn I was planning to use – Harrisville shetland bought when Ram Wools in downtown Minneapolis went out of business…
I haven’t spent as much time indoors this fall as I would think. A work trip to Salt Lake City was fun, and boy have things changed there in 15 years. I didn’t make it to Blazing Needles, it was just too long a trip on transit. The weather has been glorious. We still have some roses hanging around.
And there is plenty of chard, broccoli, lettuce and acorn squash. These heirloom carrots are a bit scary. They really are purple on the outside – that is not some sort of radiation poisoning. I set the carrot on a step to give you an idea of how big it really is. My beets are much smaller.
I may try to roast one whole and see what happens. Suggestions?
