Wordless Wednesday

funny pictures of cats with captions

It may be pouring rain and the wind may be playing air hockey with my car, but I have a warm home with snuggly animals and a snuggly hubby, so it's all good.

The Knit-Signal

I borrowed this from the Yarn Harlot

Go check out her blog for today.

Donate what you can. Even a little bit adds up over time.

If your company matches donations, take advantage of it.

Yes I donated. Now you need to as well. Haiti needs help and we can help provide some of it.

Go my pleeps go!

Trying to Get it Under Control

Since I'm OCD, this is not a surprising statement.

However since I'm talking about my knitting I expect loads of laughter to ensue.

I have a problem.

It's called Startitis. I LOVE to start new projects. I LOVE to pull patterns down that I KNOW I have the stuff to finish.

I need to knock it the f* off.

I have a ton of yarn.

I am in 3 sock KAL contests, whatever that start in the next two weeks.

I just committed myself to a wedding present for a friend's fiance. The wedding is in May. I chose Icarus. I want to add beads to it. I think perhaps I should shoot myself instead, but the yarn for it was only $12.

I need to finish the Husband's sweater (that might be a Ravelypmic WIP event project). I need to finish the second sock for the dad of the sprites down the street that now have mittens. Not to mention socks for two co-workers that are already on the needles.

There is also a BSJ due mid April for another friend's first child.

I need to go through my wips and figure out what I'm actually going to finish and what I'm not and recycle the yarn.

I need to stop starting projects bigger than socks till I get some of the old stuff out of the way. And I need to find the battery for my camera so I can start posting this stuff again.

Let 2010 be the year of the WIP Smackdown.
