Yesterday, while waiting for repairmen, I cleaned out a big box of stuff from when Katie & I did the laundry/computer room overhaul last year. We'd thrown out and donated a lot, but there was a lot that I wanted to keep but couldn't take the time to deal with right then. I found homes for most everything yesterday and the box is now empty, though I must admit that a couple of things made their way back onto shelves in the laundry/computer room, but many more hit the recycling bin and/or trash can.
Then there's stuff like this.
A small sheaf of paper having to do with the Keirsey Temperament Sorter II from a co-worker of many years ago -- questions, answers, profiles, characteristics. These are our answer sheets (Maddy was too young at the time) -- the questions aren't important here (as always, click to make big).
Mine is on the left (ISTP-Artisan Crafter), checks; DH's is in red in the middle (INFP-Idealist Healer), Xs; Katie's is at upper right (also INFP-Idealist Healer), checks; and Ali's. Ali is different. She's an ENTP-Rational Inventor; from the ENTP profile: They are the most reluctant of all the types to do things in a particular manner just because that's the way they have been done. As a result, they often bring fresh, new approaches to their work and play.
I just can't throw this stuff away.
I wanted to show Cara a close-up of the letters on the Debbie Bliss Nursery Knits ABC Sweater. They're done in reverse stockinette on a field of stockinette -- and they work pretty well! The verticals get kind of lost, but with blocking and/or wearing, I think they'll be fine. I've begun knitting yet another baby sweater -- this time from Lisa Shobhana Mason's Yarnplay. I'm trying to use up stash yarn!
Back to laundry (I'm catching up!) and taxes...
