Geekery Abounds

A clean house is a happy house…

And boy, my house was unhappy!

We spent most of last night cleaning. The results?

Ahhh, much better. Now, I know most of you don’t care about my clean house, but I feel so good about myself right now I don’t care. So there. šŸ™‚
I did get to start a new project: A NSB (Not-Sophie-Bag, as I didn’t come up with a better name and now the NSB stuck…) in dark red.
The red yarn I bought (at the same time as the yellow I made my NSB out of) is much thicker than I thought, so I ended going up to a larger needle. This is a 11, I belive. And with such thick yarn and needles, I am half way through the bottom of the bag in just a few rows.
The only problem? The ginormus skein that the red came to me in had some… problems. I didn’t unwind two wraps when I hit a snag. I very patienly undid the snag, only to hit another one a few inches later. I thought to myself “Oh, I started at the wrong end.” I rewaped what I had started and tried the other end.
Just as bad. In fact, after a frustrating hour, I got the ball of red you see above… and this:
… Ouch.

    Hi
    Your house looks great! I hate to clean. I like to untangle yarn. Do you want to clean my house and I’ll untangle your yarn??

    The NSB is great.

    I hope school is going well. Doesn’t it always feel so good to start fresh in Sept!
