I've just started reading "A perfectly kept house is the sign of a misspent life" which I am living out these days....my house is just being "maintained": dishes cleaned, laundry washed (although not always put away as fast as it should be) and living room picked up at the end of the day. Don't mind the dust bunnies in the corner please! :-)
But the time that would have been spent cleaning and organizing is instead spent playing with the baby; baking, drinking tea, keeping warm and knitting. Hence the almost finished sock up in that picture! I think I may actually get a pair of socks finished in a month rather then the year it usually takes! (Of course that's only the first sock so we'll see how long the second sock takes; especially as I have about three other projects also going!)
The pattern is the Horcrux pattern (Ravelry link) and it knits up quite fast and is easy!
