A Meditation on Control

Proof that control is an illusion...

Project: Wrap the Christmas gifts in time to send them to Sissy and family in San Diego.

Plan: Put the gifts on the dining-room table, get out the wrapping paper, tape, scissors, ribbon, labels, markers, have a little true-crime TV droning on in the background, be done in an hour or two.

What really happened:

Then this:

Then this:

And finally this:

Project: Make a nice home-made Christmas gift for BFF Ken's mother-in-law.

Plan: Knit one dishcloth and wrap it up with a pleasantly scented, boutique dish-washing liquid.

What really happened:

Then this:

Then this:

Then this:

At this point, I started blaming the uncontrollable, Tribble-like proliferation of dishcloths on how much I was enjoying the brightly colored Ty-Dy Cotton yarn I was using, but then this happened…in a completely different yarn:

Tomorrow The Plan is to make dessert sauces as another gift for Ken and family. I predict I will end up with a spinach quiche instead. Pray for me?
