"I’m the tidy type of knitter, not tangled. All of my 50 some odd projects are all “on needles” (yep – yikes) and in their respective bags. All my stash yarn is not listed on Ravelry but nicely tucked away in the ‘yarn pantry’. More is upstairs in the apartment armoire. I’ve got all my books in the pantry and the needles are all sized and hanging in the closet with straights looking lovely in two separate fun vases. All loose patterns are in sleeves and organized in a HUGE pink binder with more patterns in a folder on the computer. With my mountain of yarn, way too many patterns and books and needles up the wazoo – I think I’d go crazy for sure if it were all tangled. I did have a panic attack about 5 years ago when I had to move it all – whew glad that’s over."
"Did you ever stop to think that you can't leave for your job in the morning without being dependent on most of the world? You get up in the morning and go to the bathroom and reach over for the sponge, and that's handed to you by a Pacific islander. You reach for a bar of soap, and that's given to you at the hands of a Frenchman. And then you go into the kitchen to drink your coffee for the morning, and that's poured into your cup by a South American. And maybe you want tea: that's poured into your cup by a Chinese. Or maybe you're desirous of having cocoa for breakfast, and that's poured into your cup by a West African. And then you reach over for your toast, and that's given to you at the hands of an English-speaking farmer, not to mention the baker. And before you finish eating breakfast in the morning, you've depended on more than half of the world. This is the way our universe is structured, this is its interrelated quality. We aren't going to have peace on earth until we recognize this basic fact of the interrelated structure of all reality."
"I try I really do... it just gets away from me every single day! I have bags and baskets full of balled up and tangled balls and skeins of yarn. Jars and tins of buttons. Drawers, boxes, jars and rubber bands full of needles. Printed Patterns are in folders and baskets . Hen scratch notes are in an old blue spiral bound notebook. Thank heaven for my blog and for ravelry or I really would lose my mind and all reference to my work.
Does it matter?
Not really. I love to knit and I always find my way through my projects. The only real problem is that sound a needle makes when it drops to the hard wood floor and rolls away under the bookcase.... that....grrrrrrrrrrrrr
