Serenity now…

October 17, 2012

The semester is already half done and my perfect grad bag is still gathering dust because I am unable to finish it. It is starting to feel like I bought the most difficult yarn to find ever Cascade Sierra in Royal blue. This is not the first time this happens. My pile of unfinished projects is always due to one main issue: I never buy enough yarn since all my projects are usually made on the spot and stored in my brain (I rarely take notes and refuse to learn from my past mistakes). This should be a wake-up call.

My good friend also arrived last Friday from Haiti with two nicely filled bags. I thought maybe that she brought all her stuff with her to NY. Think again…Her bags were filled with yarns and TONS of needles I left in Haiti to be given as donation to a community center. I left Haiti like a thief and didn’t have the time to take care of this yarn situation. I could not believe my eyes! I have now become a hoarder and might even qualified to be on TV. I am also stuck between guilt and annoyance because these were donations from people FOR kids. My head feels like a hot pan with all this yarn around.

Would you know a place in the US where I could donate these 27 balls of yarns and needles for children activities?

On the other hand, it’s one week before microeconomics midterm and I promised to make a hat for a nice gentleman I met in France. So I am trying to finish a basic hat by Saturday, study, attend group projects, entertain my guests, keeping a blog, finally start this knitwear collection…This is madness.

On a brighter note I won a cute hat from craftingismybliss blog that I received in the mail last week. I haven’t had the chance to wear it yet but I am sure my afro will not tolerate it. I’d definitely will have to wear my hair down. Thank you Ann!
