Crochet anyone?

For some years now I have been wanting to make a giant granny square blanket, but it is done by crocheting and not knitting so I have shied away from it. Well no more of that now. Last night I taught myself how to do that darn granny square by crochetting. It was so EASY!! once I got the hang of it. I had a book to go from which was very helpful. I dabbled in crochetting back in my twenties when I was having babies, but was never any good at it and never finished anything either. I so want to go and buy the yarn for this project RIGHT NOW! and work on it all weekend. What do ya think? This weekend is a three day weekend for me, we have Martin Luther King day off at work and I should so use the time to clean something around the house. Here is a picture of a corner of the art studio where I hang out when I am sewing or on the computer. Not too terribly bad, but it could use some organizing.
Another view of the art studio, this is the corner where I do most of my sewing, again not too bad, but I feel like I need to be more organized here. Hubby last weekend worked on making the drawers for my sewing table, but we still need to get them installed. This is a remodeling project that we started 2 years ago and I have not quite got everything in its place yet. I am way too busy wanting to start more crafting projects instead of organizing myself. True artist behavior, right? I should also clean out my closet. One of the local charities called me last night to say they will be in my area this coming week and do I have anything to donate? I thought that would be a incentive to clean out the closet so I said yes, but I am not brave enough to show you my closet pictures.
I would so much rather begin playing with the yarn stash hubby got me for Christmas, check out this primo alpaca stash? Is he not the bestest hubby out there or what? He told me that he felt really out of place in the yarn store and all he knew was that I do not really like the yarn that they sell at Walmart but he heard that I like alpaca. The saleslady was very helpful ( I bet) from that point forward. He so ROCKS! (the picture does not do this yarn justice at all though),
Or I can go shopping for the yarn for the granny blanket? Hmmm, decisions, decisions....

I'm a bit organizationaly challenged myself. The colors in the granny squares rocks!
