I started knitting about ten years ago — 1.) because I had lots of friends having babies and they seemed really impressed when I made them itty bitty baby hats and 2.) because it allowed me to veg out in front of the TV and still have something to show for my time. Somehow in these last ten years, the yarn stash has gotten a little crazy, leading to this fun project. Because next time I want to knit something, I get to go shopping in my own house. Woot-woot.
So here it is:
I had “before” pictures of all my yarn — stuffed in baskets and giant Rubbermaid crates in the garage — but somehow they got lost in our vacation photos, never to be found again (note to self: Next organizing project should probably be photos).
I used these Cubicals from Target (mine are those sideways ones — I turned them upright and put two together).
I know my stash is small compared to those of you in the Sisterhood of the Calloused Fingertips who’ve been knitting a lot longer, but I’m excited to get my little bit of yarn under control. I had no idea I had so much purple! And I’m really gonna appreciate not digging through boxes of yarn in the garage when it’s two degrees out this winter.
