Susan asked me that last night, which disolved us both into giggles.

Somewhere I got this weird wild hair and decided to make this. Yes… I have lost my mind – again. So here you are… 56 grocery sacks worth of plastic yarn. Roughly the size of a basketball. And it only took me 2 hours to cut them up and string them together. ONLY.


Someone please tell me why can never get rid of all my works in progress… oh! yeah! because I keep starting new shit! I never used to do that, I was strictly a one project gal. Somewhere along the lines, I became corrupted. Right now I have the plarn bag, two quilts partially quilted, a baby hat, 3 shirts, 2 chickens, 3 elefelts, and 2 giraffes started. Oh, and 2 bunnies, which I’m not even sure will work out…

On the other hand, I did finish two projects this weekend. And the floor in the sewing room is once again cleared. I don’t say clean, because it is still covered in little bits of wool fuzz from the last batch of sweaters I felted. I should really learn how that vacuum cleaner works.

    What will you do with all that plarn? I have the same problem of starting new projects before I finish the old ones. I don’t even want to count how many I’m in the middle of right now!

    That’s quite a ball of plarn. I guess you weren’t kidding.

    Sounds like you have lots of little projects lingering along with a couple of big ones. At least they are in some state of physical real-ness. I have about 10 unfinished projects right now. Unstarted, too.

    Maybe yo ucan leave the wool fuzz, add to it, and over time have a felted rug in your sewing room. That would be cool and gives you a perfect excuse not to vacuum. You’re making a rug, dammit.
