Look, I’m sure that you are an absolute bastion of tidiness. A paragon of order. The very pinnacle of organizational prowess. ⁠

You start a project, work on it consistently, complete it promptly, and then move onto the next project. In that order. At a steady clip. Every time. ⁠

I, however, am not quite so fortunate.⁠

I am a person who found this in a basket in their office.⁠

This, in case the crumpled pile of purple fluff is not clear, is a fully finished hat and pair of mitts, ends woven in and everything.⁠

A stroll through the outer reaches of my hard drive suggests that I started (and likely finished) knitting this hat in JANUARY OF 2017.⁠

That, for those of you keeping track at home, is FIVE WHOLE YEARS AGO. ⁠

But this, this is not the the end of this particular shameful saga. Oh no. It gets much worse. And I shall detail it for you at length over the coming days (lucky you). ⁠

Because this is demonstrably not the first time this particular pile of goodness had surfaced from the depths of my office/brain. And it’s well past time for it to come out into the world! But not before I finish confessing all my misdeeds so I can seek absolution (or at least a more tidy set of office bins) and grow as a person.⁠

Yup. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
