Not a slob

Another week passed by pretty uneventfully, but I did have an interview and went on a day trip with some friends. I'm not even trying hard to find a job right now, more like focusing on NOT becoming a slob. Unfortunately, I'm a home creature by nature, and the gloomy weather is not helping to make me want to leave the comfort of my room. At least I'm fully equipped for unlimited hours of crafting! These are the lavender sachets that I made last week.

Aren't they pretty? I do need to get some ribbons for embellishment if I'm to make more of them though, so that's one reason to leave the house.

Knitting wise, I've been curiously monogamous lately. To be honest, I miss having 3-4 projects on the go and being able to knit and knit and knit while watching dramas. I know most people complain of having startitis, but my problem is the exact opposite. Whenever a project is finished, I'd be at lost at what to knit next. There are dramas waiting to be watched, but I can't possibly just sit there with idle hands! That was exactly my dilemma last week, so I turned to Ravelry and cast on for this scarf.

The pattern (One-row handspun scarf by the Yarn Harlot) was super simple, perfect for tv watching, and the handspun yarn made it a joy to knit. The problem is, now that I'm done with this scarf, what am I supposed to knit next?

p.s: I'm trying my best to convince myself to leave the house today, I thought putting it here might add extra pressure for me ;)

How about some socks next? What dramas are you watching? My daughter and I just finished watching a cute Korean one called Playful Kiss :)

More ribbons is a very good idea. Do not have too many ribbons in craft corner!
Lovely sachets :)
