Well, looks like it’s fall. Do I like it? I don’t know. But I could smell it this morning. Don’t you just love that smell? It is almost as good as holding chestnuts in your hand. Not to mention the food in fall: Hokkaido pumpkins, sweet potatoes, squash, soups and stew and hot pot. I am not a cook but I love cooking (and eating) in fall.
Same with colors: the blazing red, all purple, and yellow, and orange. Those remaining shades of green. These are my favorite colors, regardless of the season.
However, I dread the dark. Those short days when you have to get up before daylight and come back home when it’s dark again. All I hear is doom and gloom, and all is darkness in my room … (to quote the Rolling Stones).
No, despite the colors and the food and the smell and the chestnuts – fall is by no means my favorite time of the year.
Therefore, and to brighten my mood, I thought about starting a new project and went looking through my stash. Mistake! BIG mistake as I ran right into the basket where all WIPs and UFOs are hiding …
To me, WIPs are projects I am still working on. Occasionally. But there is progress. UFOs have been abandoned for a long, long time … They really are neglected and to be pitied. Finding those, totally killed my mood and my longing for a new project.
However, to grab the bull by the horns, I took pictures of each and every wrap-to-be, scarf-to-be, blanket-to-be …. Maybe blogging about them motivates me to keep going. It wouldn’t hurt if you asked me about it every now and then 🙂
Here they come:
So, what do you think? No christmas knitting for me this year, right? Detention instead … Seriously: how many WIPs do you have hiding in your house?
