i am SO excited.
yesterday i went to target and got these wire cube organizer thingies. i figured it was time to do something with my stash so it didn't look such a bleepin' mess. i have acquired so much yarn over the years, and mostly it sat in bins, overflowing. i never knew exactly what i had because i couldn't even see the stuff at the bottom of the bins. here's the before pics:
and here's the result of an evening of hard work:
isn't it lovely? that little corner of my bedroom feels like a freakin' yarn shop! now i'm not sure what to do with the 2 empty bins that i have. i don't have any room for storage, but maybe my best friend will be able to use them. she and her hubby are preparing to sell their house so maybe she can use the bins to store some of the stuff they want to keep. i dunno, but since my stash is so freakin' organized now, i don't need 'em!
for the most part, i sorted first by fiber, then by weight. it's not perfect but i'm gonna do like tim gunn says, and "MAKE IT WORK!"
anyway, if you want to get some of these bins, get thyself over to your local target store. they are on sale this week, you get a set of six cubes for $12.99 ... not a bad deal.
and now, maybe i can get a little knitting or crocheting in before i go to bed.
nighty night, amigos!
