We've been doing a bit of spring cleaning around here. I'm not a fanatic about keeping a clean house. While my house isn't picture perfect, there is a basic level of cleanliness. Life is far too short to spend an inordinate amount of time cleaning.
Spring cleaning is a good excuse to sift and sort, do some deep cleaning, get rid of things that we don't need. It's an exhausting, dusty process that I dread but feel good about in the end. Recycle, rearrange, reorganize, make better use of space. The challenge now is to maintain this level of organization and tidiness.
Another benefit of spring cleaning is that I collected all of my unfinished knitting projects into one basket.
Mittens waiting for thumbs, socks in search of mates, a pair of felted slippers in progress. I have a feeling there should be more than just one basket - that I'm missing something. There must be in-progress knitting hiding in a closet or tucked away on a shelf. I could swear I have more projects to finish, but for now I'll deal with this basket. It's more manageable to have it all in one place.
The downside to all of this cleaning is that my other work has piled up.
Literally. It's time to start winding.
