After a disappointing trip to Target, very ugly storage containers at ridiculous prices, I went to Bed, Bath & Beyond. Score!! A storage sale with clear boxes and LIME GREEN tops!! Such a happy woman. The poor man who helped me seemed a bit concerned at the quantity I was requesting but when I said it was for my closet and my knitting yarn stash he seemed molified.
Last night I finished picking up the straggling Good Will articles and put seasonal clothes in their nice, new containers. I gathered up my yarns from around the house so tonight is all about knitting. As you know, we have a quilting catalog called Connecting Threads. That means we have several quilters. I have always admired the way quilters wash their fabrics before they add them to their stash. So, tonight I am going to ball up any skeined yarns before I put them in their bins. I'm still not quite sure of my final system but I would like to use the drawer containers for projects I want to work on soon.
I also have bins to sort out my odd balls of leftover yarns. Right now I am sorting by cool and warm colors. I will probably get more detailed, like blues, greens, reds, etc., when I have more yarns. Palette, of course, easily sorted into two containers. The weather today is dark and rainy. Perfect for a fire in the fireplace, a good movie and stash management. I don't think I will get to any knitting before Saturday. But, I will be filled with rightousness after all my good work so I will have absolutely no quilt in spending the entire weekend in my pjs knitting.
