My craft room ends up being a catch-all for the whole house. You know the drill . . . wrapping paper, gift boxes, off season clothes, out grown baby clothes, early Christmas present purchases, the doll house my great aunt made in hopes that one day I would have a little girl to enjoy it. Ya know how it goes. Then, there is the craft stuff . . . sewing machine, yarn, fabric remnants, yarn, WIPs, yarn, a bit of roving, yarn, knitting needles, yarn, books, yarn, magazines, yarn and more yarn. It is also the guest room on the rare occasion that we have an overnight guest. I have surrendered to the fact that it is what it is, but it will be organized and look decent if it kills me!!!
I have purchased a metal shelving unit and rubbermaid bins to store my yarn. So, I have sorted through most of my yarn. I enjoyed petting my collection of fiber and dreaming about which project would make the yarn really sing. I also sorted through my knitting needles. It is unbelievable how many needles I have. Very few of them are repeats. Amazing!
I ripped out 2 of my long standing projects that I am not interested in finishing. I've finally given myself permission to rip out what I don't like. Yea!!
I took a class last Monday at Saratoga Needle Arts on Cat Bordhi's Moebius Cowl. The cast on took a little bit to figure it out, but once I got it man was it fun!! I am almost finished. Talk about a quick knit!!
