I spent some time yesterday reorganizing the stash and I'm with Kathi: I need clear plastic airtight boxes. Still, separating out the dreck I will never, ever use from the stuff I love but can't use for what I'm doing right now and the stuff I have jostling together for priority was good for the ol' mental clarity. I had two perfect projects all lined up in my mind before I could even test to make sure I can finally close the doors of my computer hutch/yarn cave.
Then I did a proper swatch to see exactly how one goes about getting a right angle without doing a mitre or picking up stitches (answer: increase like a fiend on just one side of the work.)
And then - are you sitting down? - I put a movie into the DVD player and watched it. While knitting. I never, ever get to do that. It was wonderful, not least because I got through all the boring stocking stitch while on the edge of my seat watching 1929-vintage Hitchcock.
