Yesterday I spontaneously decided to sort my yarn stash. I emptied two shelves in the wardrobe and collected everything that was stored on top of it. The layer of dust that had gathered there was quite impressive. I don’t get up there very often, I don’t like to climb a ladder.
After gathering all the yarn bags from the bottom of the wardrobe and digging out the yarn collection from underneath the heater I looked into the abyss.
I didn’t count my treasure. But I bet that if I used up only one ball per day I’d be still knitting or crocheting in one year’s time.
I spent all afternoon sorting the yarns, winding floppy skeins into balls, putting everything into clear plastic bags so I can see what I have and stashed them away. You guessed it, there was more yarn appearing in the small storage room just after I had finished. This morning I found a plastic bucket with still more balls in it.
After everything was in its place I decided to tackle the desk with the craft supplies in it. Sorted, but it took me until the late afternoon. Next on the list: sorting The Boudoir’s fabric stash.
But before I do that I need to tidy up the cupboards. I’ve got lots of things I don’t need anymore. And the space that will become vacant will be more than welcome.
