Yarnganization

Partial Stash
Partial Stash
I did manage to organize much of my yarn stash yesterday. I tried to weed out some of it for donation, but I could only come up with about two bags to give away. I admit it. I'm a yarn hoarder. Even though the photo above may not look well-organized, I actually know where everything is located. My bins are filled to over-flowing, but I will not buy more bins. I must use up some of my stash. Heh heh.

I zoomed over to Burbank this morning (Monday) to attend the yard sale held by Faith, Allison and Laurie. Luckily, most of the good yarn was gone. Phew! I did manage to pick up a couple of vintage crochet instruction booklets from Faith.

Later, I zoomed up to Montrose and met up with Madgick, Marie and Wen (and Wen's visiting Mom) for a latte and some sittin' and knittin'. Madge gave me a bag with more donation yarn from Laura, along with another vintage crochet pamphlet. I actually like some of the patterns in this book and may just try to crochet up a few! Thanks, Laura!

Hope you all had a good Memorial Day weekend.

I must make a pom pom parakeet.
I am in awe of your stash and your organization.

Ha! I no longer feel guilty about the size of my stash :) Sounds like you had a fun weekend.

I wish my stash was as organized as yours! I probably have half the amount of stash but it takes up 3 times as much space due to lack of organization!

Hi Ellen,
How about...you aren't allowed to buy any more yarn until your yarn bins can actually close. ;-)

You were very productive over the weekend. Organizing and de-stashing and re-stashing and knitting. Love the vintage books. They are fabulous.

Hey Danielle!

Maybe I need some of those vacuum bags for my yarn that suck the air out so everything the bins will close!

Heh, Ellen, your stash does make me feel a little better, however, I did buy FIVE more bins for the process--just to make things more organized an uniform.
