Giant Time Suck

Yes indeed, I have fallen fully into the Ravelry black hole of time suckage. Even though I had not intended to do so, I spent last night photographing the majority of my stash and putting it up on Ravelry notebook. I realized that a very large portion of my stash is sock yarn. How this escaped my notice before is evidence that I live in the State of Denial. I know that not all of my yarn is up there, but what is there is what I consider my active stash (that is, stuff that I will actually knit up). I didn't put up all of the odds and ends that I have or the yarn that is currently residing next to the couch, ostensibly the WIP or queued projects.

I fully intent to take a picture of my WIP and get them posted both here and on Ravelry. Soon, I will do this soon.

Just as soon as a FO isn't a felted hat.


This weekend is the 1 year anniversary of when Eric got really sick last year. I feel so out of sorts about it all. In a way, I just want the next week or so over so that the reminder is behind us and we can face the second year. Halloween leaves a bad feeling in our household, but we don't want to transmit that to Caleb. Personally, I would prefer to wallow in my misery for a couple of day to get it out of my system, but as a parent it just isn't possible.

Ravelry Syndrome is truly an awesome thing. After a while, though, things calm down a bit and you can resume normal living. Which is good because I've found that I need to go to work if I'm going to pay to keep the stash stats up!

Oh yes, I am right there with you in the anniversary-of-misery thing. I wallow for all I'm worth as I feel it's so healthy for your state of mind. Rivers of cleansing tears and all that.

Thank you for your nice comment on the tricky post I put up was kind of complicated and meaningful and I wasn't sure I should post it. The jury's still out on whether I did the right thing. :)

I've been thinking of you and I'm so proud of everything you overcame! Let's get together soon!

I'm sorry to hear that this time of year will probably always carry unpleasant associations. I hope they lessen with time.

Enjoy Ravelry! Once you're past the time-suck aspect (and that does take a while), it becomes just a great resource that you'll use all the time.

Sorry to hear you won't be able to make it tonight--hope everything's okay!

I have noticed that since I got the Ravelry invite...I have been on it more than the blogging thing...and now am behind on reading/commenting. Geez. I hope that all is well with you.
