Smugness Gets a Setback

To celebrate finishing the quilt AHEAD of schedule (continuing to milk that--thank you), I wanted to spend the evening with mohair, and while the Lady's Circular Cape
has become my favorite project, this
is on big needles, and with big needles, I could use up this
much yarn and be able to say that I had used up 45 balls of yarn by the end of April (a rather slow month for projects overall), but after 30 minutes of searching, I could not locate the pattern book. Apparently the sewing room has gotten so out of control that it is taking prisoners.

This weekend will involve a GREAT deal of cleaning, though I might tie one of those hiking ropes around my waist first--just in case.....

: ) I too have to do some major cleaning/reorganizing of my stash closet. I almost had an avalanche today while I was looking for something. : ) maybe I need a rope too!

Why not make a pattern up instead of using the book? I am sure you can do it, you have knitted so many things.

Good luck with the cleaning.

Ha Ha! Don't you hate it when that happens. I must say that my craft room is somewhere between somewhat functional and complete disaster. Unfortunately, I think I need to purge the rest of the house first before I can get to it. UGH.

I have 2/3 of a vest for which I have *totally lost* the pattern. Probably when moving. It's been 8 years, you think I should consider maybe frogging it?

Congratulations on finishing the quilt! I have fabric for my daughter's baby quilt... and she'll be 2 in July... I hit a math snag, and then she was 10 days early, and now it's just been so long...
