What would you do if your mother asked you?

What is a knitter to do?

I have a list of UFO's a mile long. Some of them are close to done (one sleeve and some ribbing) and some are not so close (half of a twin-size blanket left to knit). I have a yarn stash so enormous, I have to use large laundry baskets and plastic tubs to corral it. I have patterns galore, shelves of books and magazines and a folder full of patterns downloaded from the internet - a veritable who's who of "wannados" lined up in a row.

What did I work on this week?



Slicing up plastic bags to make plastic yarn.




I know, I know, I'm pathetic.

But wait a minute, you did this on request of your mom? Totally understandable and I'd do the same thing if my mom asked.

Now, if you did it just for the fun of it, that just might be a wee bit pathetic. Or at least crazed. But I wouldn't be surprised if I'd also do that if the mood should strike. ;-)

Actually, my mom didn't ask. The title is a quote from Cat in the Hat, which basically ponders the advisability of being honest about what you actually did all day.

Alas, the eternal struggle between blogging honesty and the desire to appear much more responsible and, yes, sane than you actually are. ;-D

Not pathetic at all! In fact, I started one of those myself a while back. I suppose I'm the pathetic one given that I never finished it...

The recycled bags are actually quite nice and a great way to use up all those bags.

If you can't tell us, who CAN you tell?

Can't wait to see what it turns into!
I think this mild weather brings out the spring fever startitis in Minnesotans...

Me? I'd tell her no way. There are limits. I can't work with plarn - not for love nor money.
