the good news is that, with a little help, I finished it.
I have (re-)confirmed that despite a concerted effort to knit from stash (I'm counting two finished projects and two works-in-progress for 2011 from stash) I still have a lot of yarn to knit (which is good news if you are marc, and bad news if you are me, or theresa :-)
|this is the yarn stash I have out in the open|
|...and what I keep behind closed doors|
and I keep my active projects - of which ravelry reports there are four - in project bags. I realized I had a problem when I couldn't remember what one of those bags contained.
it was that lakedale shawl. yep, I'd forgotten about it.
too bad I don't count knitting as a chore...then I could devote a whole afternoon (or two?) next week working on the backlog. but no, I'm going to stay honest (and focused!) and clean out my desk instead. I can't imagine what I'll find...but I doubt it will be as good as lots (and lots!!) of yarn....
