Today I was overcome with the feeling to purge. Not the 3 lbs. I seem to have gained in the last week eating Ben & Jerry’s and handfuls each day of Costco chocolate covered raisins. No, going to the gym would be too easy. Instead, I have been throwing away CRAP. It’s amazing what you can accumulate in a very small NYC apartment over the course of 10 years. I have 5 kitchen garbage bags full of stuff waiting to go into the trash room. Pounds of shredded financial documents. A zillion cables from old computer and electronic equipment. My first cell phone, circa 1997, which weighs about 5 lbs. and looks like you can kill someone with it. Old linens and crappy gym clothes I’ll never wear (how could I? I never go…hahahaha). Anyway, no knitting today, I’ve been organizing.

Tonight I’m going to see the Shins at Bowery Ballroom, which should be fun. I’ve had these tickets all summer.

Well, I’ll be edging along with the blanket tomorrow.

the edging is beautiful. what are you making?

Kay, it’s a blanket I’m making as a baby blanket. you can see the pattern of it here or here.

Glad to hear you’re organizing, but hey, you gotta donate that stuff!

Hope your not-quite-spring cleaning is going well!
