As my title says, progress *is* being made here at Happy Acres (even though our address may have changed, our family home will always be Happy Acres). I had a Xerox box of papers that was filled to the rim. If I wasn't careful, stuff could fall out. This box contained bills, coupons and sales ads from Sunday's newspaper, coupons from Sunday's paper dating back to Nov 2013, school info, house info, and filing. That was my goal today, to sort and organize that box of paper. (btw, weren't we supposed to have LESS paper in the 21st century??) and I succeeded. The coupons and receipts are contained in its own box, the filing and other misc items are in another box. The school info, the house info and medical info are in individual piles. The bills are sorted and organized and in a time out because they ticked me off.
While I'm slowly working my way across my bedroom, I am also working my way thru knitting projects. I actually have my first finish of 2014!!
My socks are done! I started them back in Sept and finally cast off the last stitch on Monday. SOOO happy they are finished!!! Yarn is a sport weight, the grey is a Regia 6 ply and the red is some Knit Picks Stroll in Hollyberry. I started sock #2 of another pair I cast on for back in July (!) and am almost 2" into the cuff. It's thick yarn so I'm hoping I can get thru these by the wknd as well. I was going to start another pair of socks with a bright colored yarn, but I couldn't decide which one so a WIP won out instead. I keep thinking abt that yarn I posted a couple of days ago. I may have to get it. It can be my I Survived 2013 and rewarded myself with this yarn yarn.
I am still missing those three projects I started before surgery and I was really hoping they'd be in that box. Makes me nuts with how many things I can't find. Never move and have surgery a month later. SOOO not a good idea!!!
Everybody keep warm!!
