I love to sort. Maybe that's why I let things get in such a tangle, just so I can sort it all out again. The most recent need to sort involves sewing boxes. I have two. One was always mine, one was mine (a story there for another time) but my mom commandered it. This latest sorting was necessitated by a need for a transfer pencil which I was sure was in *my* box. But the stuff was so jammed in there and mixed up that I just upended it all on the floor and started from scratch. A ton of skinny bias tape (which I will probably never use but ya never know) A lot of Velcro...odd since lately everytime I've done a pillow top, I've bought new. A bunch of buttons. Fun to look through since, with some of the used ones, I can remember some of the garments they adorned. And some that I swear I have never seen before. A few wooden spools. And these little treasures. The price tag on the needle books says 17 cents. And obviously back in 1964 the book of stitches was something I probably hesitated about. I told ya I was old! *G*
And now the sewing box will close, and hey, I can even find stuff in it!
As far as knitting goes, I have the heel turned and gusset begun on Dreamsicle sock #1 and the cuff done on #2. I'm doing from ribbing down on a size smaller needle so I want to get it far enough along that I can try it on before I start the heel on #2. Maybe that will happen today...who knows? Certainly not me LOL
