nesting

nest of mess.
nest of mess.
oh yeah there's a dog leash, and a stitch holder that I had to cut because I accidentally knit it into my knitting. smooth.

I do this one thing (just one thing) that can bug Tyler a bit. He calls it "nesting." He will straighten up our living room, and shortly after I swoop in. If I'm working on a project I gather everything I need within arms reach. Especially with knitting, because that means I'm usually sitting on the couch for prolonged amounts of time, and I don't like to move much. So everything around me just gets put (or left) in one spot, on one half of the coffee table.

He's constantly picking up, and I'm constantly messing it up until he gives up or my project is complete, whichever comes first. I think he gave up already on this one.

My nesting is on high right now because I'm working on knitting my first sweater, which has multiple cables. That means I have to have my pattern, cable needle, pen, ruler on the ready at all times. I'm using this pattern, using this sweater as inspiration for the yarn choice and I'm knitting it on 11's to make it a bit bigger. It's been great so far, but ask me again when I have to seam it all together.

ps, I made a new smoothie this weekend that is now a favorite, like getting your morning oatmeal and milkshake in one.

2 frozen bananas (or fresh and ice)

  2. haha that's so cute, I love the way you describe it. I am exactly the same but I always just think of it as "making a mess". Nesting sounds so much more productive and purposeful!
