I had these Mickey feet slippers for years and had put them in the pile to take to the Goodwill when I read that they were having a Best slipper contest. Boy am I happy that I pulled them out. I won the best slippers contest. My prize was the 2009 desk calendar "Never Not Knitting" by Stephanie Pearl-McPHee, the Yarn Harlot.
My birthday is January 31, a Saturday next year. The calendar says, "Weekend Chores, Stash Cull, Culling is reducing the population by selectively removing the weak members, and that's what you'll do this weekend with your yarn stash. You and I both know there's stuff in there you're never going to knit. It's cool to keep it for inspiration or because you love it, but if it's there for no reason? Cull it from the herd and pass it on to a school, retirement home, or charity."
I really should not wait until January 31, 2009. The place is over run with yarn from my knitting and weaving that I do not know what to do with.
I want to thank Kristi, Ang and all the crew at Eleganza for making this such a fun evening.
