I have the urge to go an organize all my craft stuff. All my yarn, needles, fabric, fiber, whathaveyou.
No, I am not pregnant.
It came about because I came across the Grumpy the Lump of Coal pattern in the Knitpicks catalog. I want to make him, and might tonight. It may be a gift for some kid this year, esp because I have some blackish Lamb's Pride Bulky and some Cascade 220 left from Maddie's hat. He'd be adorable in both. I want him because Nessie came out..... hideous. I'll need to felt him to see if I can even pass him on at the shower this weekend. I'm hoping he's ok, but if you're thinking about buying the book Amigurumi Knits, think twice. There's some serious errata in there.
I also have an overwhelming urge to buy more MochiMochiland patterns, just because they're so fucking adorable. Really, I promise. I want them all.
What does this have to do with organizing? I can't find some of my needles. Or some cables. I know I have them, I'm just not sure where. My WIPs is a mess. I lost two skeins of yarn I bought a week and a half ago somewhere in my house (I think they're on the bookshelf in my craft room). I don't want to pay Knitpicks $7 to ship me $10 worth of cables. Although I could use some DPNs.....
Expect coal this Christmas. Disapproving, grumpy coal.
