Today I continued with my mania to tackle a task that I often dread -- I cleaned out my crafting area.
I call it my craft area, but really it is still dominated by the stash. New yarn, old yarn, leftovers, ufos. It all needed to be put right. The good thing is that I no longer feel the need to buy any more yarn. I started with the intent to just put in the cabinet what had been floating around the sewing desk, but I ended up pulling everything out and doing a full airing of the stash. Everything has now been examined for damage, bagged, and stacked neatly in the cabinet.
I also organized my leftovers into various categories as I am making hexipuffs. I have an entire bag of fingering weight, all of which is my own and most of which is much more than is needed for hexis. There may be preemie hats in my future.
All of this cleaning and organization is great. I feel less cluttered and I get to rediscover items I have not properly appreciated. But the downside? I need to knit all the things and I need to knit them now. If you need me I'll be huddled in the corner, winding yarn madly while I chew off my hair.
