Okay, it looks worse, doesn't it? However, believe it or not, it took a lot of work to make it look this bad. I've been shredding, sorting, organizing, culling, doing laundry, and rearranging all day. Now I have TWO messy rooms--this one as well as the dining room, which is full of all the stuff that's on the way out. I hate this stage, when everything gets worse before it gets better. I'm trying not to panic!

Cleaning up this room is like being on an archeological dig. I found this thing wadded up in a bag. I didn't even remember working on it and had to look at the instructions to figure out what it was. Any ideas? At first, I was thinking the hole was for my head to go through. Turns out, it's a wrap/shawl thing from the Lion Brand yarn site. It looks like I had to good sense to reduce the width of the thing, so it won't be as blanket-like as the one pictured, but I'm still not sure this is worth finishing. What do you think? Does it deserve a chance?

I'm still not sure what the hole is for. Is it an armhole? I think you could carry off the thing the model is wearing but it looks pretty drafty LOL.

Yep, that is one of three armholes! I don't have enough yarn to make the whole thing anyway. But I think I'm going to finish it as a vest and see how it looks.

How is the clean up going? I think you are inspiring me- I really want to organize my storage room now.

Glad you are trying that pattern as a vest, it'll probably look a lot cuter not so long!

I can't imagine what it should look like, but maybe on a rainy day or when you have some time you could make it into a vest like you said. You have put this much work into it, so it would be a shame just to throw it away. I'm going to have to start cleaning out some of my kitchen cabinets and tossing out things I never use anymore to make more room. I'm not looking forward to it, but someone has to do it. LOL
