Kitty Kitty Bang Bang AKA Knitty Knitty Bang Bang.

I've given up on both the February Sweater KAL and the Knitting Olympics. I'm neck deep in reorganizing (and purging) my storage room - and with the end in sight - I'm just not motivated to commit myself to a massive knitting challenge. I feel like an asshole because I organized the February Sweater KAL but I just don't have it in me right now. The storage room reorganization has been totally cathartic. I'm just not feeling sentimental about a lot of stuff anymore. Stuff that I've been holding on to for some reason all these years - old zines, derby detritus, triathlon race numbers, mismatching socks, old makeup, cassette & VHS tapes - it is all going in the trash. I'm keeping most of my books, photos, derby programs (that I designed), tools, a couple of love letters... Some of the trash isn't due to sentimentality, but more due to poor housekeeping/filing skills. Tax returns from the 1990s, ancient bank statements, prehistoric paycheck stubs, etc. Soon I'll have a clean and organized storage room, I'm SO looking forward to it. A storage room that I don't have to think of as my dirty little secret! Hell yeah!
