"I hate waiting."

As you might guess, I'm a bit impatient. I had hoped that picking up a pair of knitting needles would help me learn about the virtue of patience... but it seems I just want my projects to go along as quickly as possible.

packing it up

i'm supposed to be packing. I've got about 16 days left in Denver... and I'm stalling/procrastinating about packing. I manage to do about 2-3 boxes per day... but I let myself off the hook way too easily.

see what I've found?

Click here to play Make-A-Word word game, and TRY to score better!

I think it might just be Bookish who actually goes and plays and gets as obsessed with this stupid game as I am.

I have to make the confession that I earned a strike on Stashalong. In a moment of complete...forgetfulness, I bought 5 skeins of Patons Grace so I could make Reid (from knitty.com) for some little girl... either my professors 3 month baby, or my tiny friend's 6 mo old. I guess we'll see, depending on how long it takes me to finish, huh?

It sure is hard to not buy yarn when you are so used to buying it whenever you need to. I use the term need very loosly. :) I'm getting ready to move as well and I haven't started packing yet. :) I have however started getting stuff together for a garage sale on Saturday so that is a start.

Oh, man, CynCyn, you are killing me! I see that site is going to be a huge time drain......even though I scored horribly. I'm only a Good Reader. Must. Train. Harder.

Breaking stashalong? But a baby needs to have something especially for them. They're new. Their yarn should be new. Right? Works for me.

You're packing when you have 16 days to go? That's what you're supposed to do mid afternoon the day before.

Hee hee - you'll have to grab SAL Dropout button from somewhere... Oh well! You did pretty well, right??

Good luck with the packing! I'm the queen of dawdling, but I usually manage to get it done at the very last minute - hopefully you can do the same!

If I could type the letters, I'd do better.

16 days is a long time left to pack. Everyone procrastinates on doing it - it's just not a fun process.

I miss buying yarn. Sniff.

Hey there Cyn! I'm still not sure if I'll be making next weekend, but I really hope to hook up with you before you leave! And as for Reid ... that will be one cute gift. :)
