Ever since I was little, I have secretly loved back to school time. Shopping for new clothes and shoes, picking out school supplies, anticipating seeing all of my friends again, anxiously worrying about new teachers. Yes, it makes me envious of the little guy a bit. I am sure he would trade places with me in a heartbeat, too. So to make us both feel better about the new school year, I have assigned myself some homework. I am a self-confessed secret hoarder. On the outside, my house might be clean and organized but danger lurks inside every drawer and closet. So at the top of the list is to reorganize the horror that is my kitchen cupboards in order to make room for some long awaited new kitchen gadgets.

 Second is to sort through and donate the little guy's outgrown clothes and toys.

Third is to finish some forgotten sweater projects if I can figure out where I left off. (Note to self: write self a note before burying a project deep down in the WIP basket).

Aidez cardigan and Spoked cardigan

Fourth is to start on some holiday and charity knitting. Love the Miranda Hat pattern by Evelyn from Project Stash so I plan on using up some stash acrylic yarn to knit a few for a local shelter. But first, those kitchen cupboards await....maybe after I knit a few more rows of my Summer Crush.... should really finish this one since summer is over now....

  1. Me too! I'm totally the back to school nerd. And the organizing nerd. Fun stuff! I wish you much luck getting it all whipped into shape, and am incredibly anxious to see Aidez. hint hint. ;)

  2. You are a stronger person than I---I need to organize so, so badly, but ugh. Organizing is anathema to me. So I'll live vicariously through you, and your beautiful sweaters. That spoked cardigan is going to be amazing.

  3. Love the photo of your cardigan! I wa so happy to read that you're casting some Miranda hats!!

  4. Nothing like a little fall cleaning! Both sweaters look awesome, and I hate it when I forget to write myself some note to help out later.

  5. I so agree---spring cleaning is totally over-rated; I can get into the "nesting" of fall cleaning much more. Good luck! I've just unearthed a couple forgotten WIP. Time to do that kind of fall-cleaning, too.
