The Sun Came Out

Hello friends! Long time no blog! I've written a few posts, but it's been so dark and cloudy, I haven't been able to take any pictures to go with them. :P It's like we live in Mordor over here! I've seen the sun twice in the last three weeks! Christmas was one of those days, so that was a nice gift.

I hope you all had a fabulous holiday, whichever ones you observed. Ours was quiet and relaxed. I'm still knitting Christmas presents like a little elf, though. I have a lot left and a deadline that's creeping up fast (nope, it wasn't Christmas!).

Today and yesterday, I conquered the monumental task of moving my yarn stash around. John's been on a shelf-building kick, which wrapped up with new yarn shelves for me. Yay! I don't have as much unused yarn as I thought I did. I have a ton of partial skeins, but those are living somewhere else for now. :S

I like the idea of getting up and plucking the yarn I want from the shelf instead of having to recall my weird organizational system (and the exceptions to it) and digging through boxes and tubs of yarn. I'm hoping to continue my destashing in the coming year. This will help me keep track of it. Though I'll have to find a new use for some of the shelves when I begin to run low on yarn (HA!).

I'm sure (I hope) after the gift-knitting season you are all diving into selfish knits! What are you working on to keep you warm in this burst of cold weather?


  1. It looks so nice to have all the yarn on a shelf, it's a good way to constantly admire it :)

  2. I need to reorganize my stash, as well. I have what SEEMED like a good system at the time, but which turned out to be a pain in the butt to remember, so it needs re-doing.

  3. Those are great yarn shelves! Not too deep that you will have to dig for the yarn at the back (or that they get forgotten) I've already started on the selfish knitting.. Though I haven't had much time to knit lately.

  4. I have used two bookcases for a while now to store yarn .. I often think if I knit from stash ... but what will the bookcases hold?!?! Oh maybe the BOOKS all piled on the floor in your craft room and bed table, LMAO!!!

  5. I feel your pain about the dark dreary days and no light for photos :( these shelves though now they are great....look at all the yarn just waiting to be knit up :)


Thank you for reading and commenting! I love to hear what's on your mind!
