Resolving By Season, Not By Year...

Visions of summer....

I figured I'd share one last summer image before my mind settles into fall mode.

I find I make a lot of resolutions for September. I guess it's the student in me, I always associate September with a new chapter in my life. What a perfect time to resolve!

I've been thinking about the last year a lot over the past few weeks. There have been a few miserable things and things I've been less than happy about, but all in all, I think it's been one of the best years of my life.

I feel like I am much closer to becoming the person I want to be. And that is one of the best feelings in the world.

I'm still broke, and I don't like my job, and my house is a mess, but those things don't make me who I am.

Distraction #1: Mid-picot---

I've spent a lot of time thinking about my yarn. I have too much of it. I've sold some and I've....Oh, in one of my bins, I found a giant tangle with about 7 single balls all knotted together, and I tried to untangle them, and I just couldn't. I cannot tell you how good it felt to throw the whole mess in the garbage!

I've gone from 5, very full, large plastic storage tubs to about 2 (maybe 2 and a bit). Most of the yarn has been knit with.

Distraction #2: Post-picot---

My goal is to be down to 1 storage bin (not stuffed full) by the end of the year.

I feel like I can comfortably stash that much yarn.

ohhh! Pretty!! I do love a picot sock. That yarn is gorgeous - what is it?

De-stashing to one bin. More power to you Chrissy. There's no way I'm ready to get there from here, although there is an entire bin of "What was I thinking?" that would be up for donation if I had the vaguest thought of where to send it.

I think of fall the same way - the beginning. Probably has to do with the whole school year thing but I really am excited for new changes/routines/etc. this time of year. Lovely picots!

Very pretty sock! I can understand your goal to get to one bin - lately I've been wanting to do the say thing - go through the stash and reduce it down to a more manageable size. Good luck with it!

The picot edge is so pretty & so are the colors. Only 1 bin of yarn - that's a major accomplishment which I think I will not be able to achieve.
