I have hidden my yarn.

I called it “organizing” but really, I’ve secured all of the visible skeins that won’t fit in my temporary stash boxes in project bags or underneath the little pile of project bags and notions I’ve settled on top of my indoor storage box.

Since I am now in my second week of restrictions, I decided this was for the best. The temptation works on me every night.  You’ll note the guard cat stationed at the front.  She’s kindly agreed to distract me with soft kitty fur anytime I reach for a skein.

I’m making good on my promise to research and have two books underway: The Yarn Whisperer by Clara Parkes and Creativity for Life by Eric Maisel.  Reviews are forthcoming, but I will say that Clara Parkes enchants me. Her words easily flow through my mind and remind me of what I aspire to become.  Maisel just inspires and moves my brain into this place of analysis and determination.  Two very different reads.

Tomorrow begins the biggest distraction of all, a new house! Yep. We close on our new home tomorrow and that means a week of moving, getting set up, and getting settled stretches out in front of us. I know my blogging will be sporadic for a few days, but I’ll be posting on Facebook and Instagram if you want to know what’s going on.

Once we finish the move, my yarn will come back out and be stored in my brand new studio.

And, hopefully, my hands will be so much better that I can begin knitting again. I think that will make me as happy as this cat.

Maybe happier.
