In my on-going efforts to purge a room's worth of crap, I decided to tackle my knitting magazines and books. My hope is to reduce them by 1/2. Considering that the new shiny bookshelves we bought this summer are already overflowing, I don't really have a good place for my hobby/craft reading at the moment.

Reading through some of the old magazines I realized just how hooked I am. Not only do I put little stickies on the pages of items I want to make, but I've often marked something that is horribly outdated, but has a really cool stitch pattern. Because, you know, I'm going to design something different using that pattern.

Back to those little stickies. I've counted them. And while they may not be as numerous as the balls of wool I have tucked away, there are more of them than I'm confident I have days left to live. No seriously, there are that many. I need to revise my will, I'm sure hubby won't appreciate them nearly enough.

I suppose the one good thing with all this hoarding is that I'll never be lacking for insulation.

I learned to knit a few years ago, but by a friend. So, I started taking a knitting class about 3 weeks ago so that I could learn to read a pattern and do something besides knits and purls. I'm so excited to make some cool things!

Yay for more knitters! I can't wait to see some finished objects.
