Crafting Withdrawal

Well, all of my everything is now moved to the new place! But not, unfortunately, unpacked or organized in any logical fashion. In addition to the continued chaos of me having way too much stuff, I’ve also got the last month of the semester to wrangle with still – all of this has resulted in me not really crafting a damn thing since spring break. I’ve practically got the DT’s from this, I’m serious.

On the bright side, I happen to have had a big mindless knit project laying around, on which I could squeak in a few rows here and there in between moving and cleaning and class to relieve stress. So that no one got mysteriously disemboweled with craft scissors. Somehow.


Full story on this thing is still to come, once I (finally) finish it. I’ve had it laying around for over a year, gradually consuming and assimilating various scrap yarns. However, it came out YUGE. Like, thrice as big as I meant it to – used up the scrap yarn thrice as fast of course, which is good, because I have this whole bag full of it:

But first, writing papers and unpacking. Cringe.

  1. I feel for you. Been there, done that. Got the straight jacket. I’ve hired an organizer. Of course when I really needed it, at the stage you are in, I couldn’t afford one even if they had existed back then. And I was in art school but since everything was for an assignment, it wasn’t like getting to be crafty.Don’t worry, it’s like riding a bicycle, you never forget how. Although I was pretty lousy on my bicycle so I don’t think that’s the best example, LOL.

    1. You hit the nail on the head with that one! I have a bunch of art projects but they are all for school – I mean they are decent assignments but we all know where my true passion lies šŸ˜‰ Lol, thanks for the words of encouragement! I am slowly getting back to it, and of course once school is out for the semester that’s all I’ll be doing!
