Cleaning and Organizing my House

I have been very ambitious cleaning and organizing closets and cabinets.  I still have a long way to go, but I am chipping away at the job.  I am almost finished with the second floor and have started on the basement.  You should see the garbage I put out for the trash man.  I am not throwing everything out as I am also putting things away for a yard sale.  It feels good to get organized though.  Thank goodness for the Container store.

As a result, I haven’t gotten much knitting done.  I seem to have started more projects or want to start more projects rather than finishing things up.

I did complete the June Mid Month KAL.  The pattern is called Peacock in Color by Janet Nogle.  I used Peaches and Creme in white and delft blue with a size 7 needle.  I really liked this pattern and it was fun to knit up.

I started another pair of socks.  The pattern is called Summer Lovin socks by Dawn Matkovic.  I’m using size 1 needles with Sweet Georgia superwash sock in the orchid colorway.  I really like the pattern and the color.

I got a cute kit from The Knitter’s Edge.  It’s a flag hotpad using Fantasy Naturale yarn in red, white, and blue.  The kit will make 2 hotpads and it was only $5.00.

I also got the June shipment from the Rubber Ducky club.  The yarn is Pima Petite in the colorway lime in the coconut (it makes me want to sing).  We also got a bar of mimi’s soap in coconut lime verbena and a moisturing sugar scrub in mint lemonade.  I love the color of the yarn.

Well, off to knit.  I have a goal this week to try and finish off some projects so I can start some new ones.
