Getting Organized -- Again!
A couple of days ago I cleaned out my bookshelves, and replaced magazines with my latest knitting books: Basically Brilliant Knits, The Ultimate Knitted Tee, and two by the Wonderful EZ -- Knitting Around and Knitting Without Tears. I also have the latest on Her Inimitableness -- The Opinionated Knitter -- a collection of her newsletters: witty, down-to-earth, and an all-round great read. Now they have pride of place in my barrister's bookcase.
Just in case you thought I'd tossed the magazines (a la FLYlady)-- fear not! I have sorted them by title and put them in magazine holders in chronological order. About once a year I go through 'em, and only then do I turf or give away (preferably the latter, whenever I can).
I still have two HotSpots, though -- the floor next to my bed (so much bedtime reading, so little time!), and my dining table-cum-studio. SO! Resolved: no new books or fabricflossfibre stuff till I get them read/sewn/knitted/embroidered/journalled/drawn!!
Who am I kidding?!
