Clean Sweep, Week 2

Boy, you turn me
Inside out
And round and round.

I thought we were done with the household upheaval last week, but I was oh-so wrong. ABM has decided that he and the kids have too many clothes, so he has been paring down their wardrobes. I, of course, am exempt from this because I barely have six pairs of panties to my name -- you know I don't have too many clothes. Anyway, I did the preliminary work by weeding out all the clothes that were too small, stained, or ripped. ABM followed up by making sure they had a certain amount of each clothing item. It has been four days of tripping over laundry baskets and garbage bags full of clothes, but I think the job is now complete.

In other news, I am finally knitting again. Rabbit's baby shower is at the end of the month, and she told me that she wanted me to make her a super-soft blanket. I knew that there were several knitters and crocheters in her husband's family so I had to come correct. After some trial-and-error, I settled on the Round Pinwheel Baby Blanket. It is a quick and easy pattern created by one of my online friends; I don't know why I haven't tried it before. I've been working on it for the past few days and I'm happy with how it is turning out. This evening, I talked to Rabbit and she told me that all of her husband's relatives have knit and crocheted her things. Guess what she wants from me? A lullaby CD. Sheesh! Luckily, I had already planned to buy her this one to go with the blanket. Now I have to decide if I am going to give her the blanket at all. I'm not sure if she is saying that she truly doesn't want any more blankets, or if she is trying to save me some work because she knows that I get bored with blankets halfway through the pattern.
