I have a random question ... does anyone else alphabetize things? My DVDs and books are alphabetized - well, except for my travel books, cookbooks and journalism books, those are on their own shelves. And knitting books are in my knitting corner, not on a shelf. My boyfriend teases me about my alphabetizing tendencies every time we pick out a movie to watch.
Today, while I was doing my big pre-weekend clean, I dusted them for the first time in too long, and I decided to move some books to make room for some that were not in the shelf. So it required moving an arms-length of books down, and down, and down, onto each of the next shelves. It was rather annoying, and for half a second, I thought I should just give up the alphabetizing. It's rather charming to have bookshelves that are scattered and in no order. But I've been alphabetizing since I was little (especially when I had dozens of "Babysitters Club" books), why stop now.
I've had a little cough the past two days, but that didn't stop me from my Wednesday clean. I cleaned out the coat closet (goodbye, hat I took from a bar in college) and got started on the laundry room. I found an entire bottle of detergent in there. Between that and emptying the various trash cans, I have three bags to take out to the garbage!
Last night I got home from work to find two boxes outside the door. My Knitpicks and Amazon orders! I am now the proud owner of an Options set. I can't wait to cast on ... something. Maybe a baby surprise jacket for a co-worker who's pregnant. "Knitting Workshop" was one of the books in my Amazon order.
Oh yeah - a question for Options owners. Can someone explain to me how the key tightens the needle? I screwed a needle on one of the cables and it felt pretty darn tight. I stuck the key in, and it just went all the way through the hole on the other side. I feel pretty dumb.
