Sometimes I get carried away. I can throw myself into a project a little too deeply. Especially when it comes to fixing or cleaning something.
For example, this morning, I had intended to sweep around the back door of our house, and before I knew it, I had the whole kitchen swept, had spot-cleaned a spaghetti stain from last night’s dinner from the wall (thanks kid) and was finishing up a load of dishes. It’s not a bad thing- my kitchen’s now a lot cleaner. But, it did take a good half hour to do a chore that I had expected to take about two minutes. (Though part of that was the kid “helping” with the broom.)
That same thing happened with my socks from last week. I had finished fixing the little hole in the toe, posted about it, then put them on.
Then, I realized that I really should reinforce that bit of the heel… and the ball of the foot on the other sock was looking a little threadbare… oh and over here was a bit sparse, so it could probably use some help.
They turned out ridiculous. (Pro tip: Don’t use pink yarn to darn toes… you’ll think that your toe has busted through your sock every time you look down.) But, I should be able to get a couple more years’ use out of them now.
Although, I do see a couple spots that could use a little more darning…
Have you ever gotten carried away on a similar project?
