Crafts aside, my main project for the year is a major overhaul on my home. Many possessions will be donated, tossed or sold within the next few months. The yarn stash will also be pared down to exclude anything I will never use. The prospect of simplifying my life is really exciting and the first round of purging already looks promising. Hours were spent organizing the button and bead stashes and everything is now stored in plastic ziplock bags in shoeboxes. This probably doesn't sound too interesting, but there is a sense of relief that comes with never having to worry about finding a specific button or buying something I already own.
Speaking of organizing, I have become addicted to making lists. The month of January has been spent on various hat-knitting projects:
- Two Trilobite Hats (Cascade 220 Heathers and Berroco Ultra Alpaca)
- One Ballard Slouch Hat (Malabrigo Merino Worsted)
- One Mod Beanie (Cascade 220)
- One Corkscrew Tassel Hat (pictured in Knit Picks Swish)
