You know how it is when you try to organize everything, keep track of what is where, weed out the fluff every once in awhile, and keep on top of things?
Well, I've been doing a lot of that lately. Spent most of January cleaning, culling, organizing, putting away. I now feel I have space I can work in well.
But it seems I've organized myself right out of being able to find the One issue of VK knitting that I like the best of all the issues of the last 5 years. I've knit one sweater from it already, and want to knit at least 3 more projects from that issue. (yeah, I know, with the rate I finish things it's not that critical). I'm working on the sleeves to the DB ruffle cardi (from the Cashmere collection), however I've reached that stage with this project where I'm more interested in planning the next project while finishing this one. So, I'm turning my house upside down looking for the magazine. What did I Do with it?
Speaking of organizing. I put all of my past issues of Threads in numerical order.
Geeze. I've been bidding on ebay for Threads issue #14 , for at least 6 months - always losing it as it gets up past $35.
well, good thing!. I own it. I own issues 1-17, then hit and miss until issues 110 or so, then I have all of them again.
Crazy. Issue 14 has an article in it by and about Herself, so it always goes for too much, but what I really wanted was the cover article about the gloves.
So, now to find the missing issue of VK.
BTW, does anyone else find they own multiple issues of the same publications? I found at least 5 multiples. Best keep better track in the future.
