There was organization an eon ago but now only chaos. Yesterday, when I opened the doors of the six foot tall stash cabinet, I groaned when I saw the hodgepodge of yarn. There are baskets of varying sizes sitting around the room that houses two knitting machines and enough yarn to start a small shop. The baskets just didn't work when filled with skeins of yarn and placed into the cabinet. What was on the bottom of each basket? I could never remember without taking it out and dumping it. Sort of defeats the purpose!
I will not even mention the needle storage.
I stood on a ladder to get a picture of the baskets on top of the cabinet. Yes, they are filled with yarn too. I know there must be an easier way to store yarn but I clearly haven't found it. I keep dumping it into the cabinet and shutting the door before 15 skeins fall out. Something has to change so I'm going to Michaels today. I have an idea that clear acrylic boxes would allow me to see the yarn on the bottom, and would stack easily. We will see.
The left side of Lace Edged Cardi is finished and half of the lace chart on the right side. This is the longest cardigan project I have ever taken on. I have knit three sweaters since January but this one alone has been going on since June. I'm knitting with a smaller needle than I use for most sweaters (US #4) so I guess that slows me down.
The above picture is not quite what I had in mind, but Big Red is such a beautiful horse that I thought I would share him anyway. Thirty seconds before I took this picture I ran to get the camera so I wouldn't miss the chance to get a picture of Big Red rolling on his back, kicking his hooves in the air. Of course he was standing again when I came back with the camera. Maybe next time!
Life is good.
