I was going to do a post about some interesting advertisements in the "rejected" years for the last September post but I've lost them. I, somehow, lost a stack of 14 magazines. Granted they're small magazines but I can't find them and I've looked in all of the likely spots.
While looking though some things got a little more organized including the yarn stash.
About ten years ago I had two small canvas boxes that held my yarn. I have, um, a lot more than that now and I'm going to show you how I store my yarn.
This storage is for the most used yarn and holds mostly cheaper acrylics and acrylic blends - it's sorted by size. Ten years ago there were two of these, 2 years ago there were five. Today I added the sixth. It's the red one in the upper right. That yarn used to be in a bag on the floor in front of the others.
This next area is my working area and holds a basket of yarn I use for inspiration and testing, a box of Scheepjes mini skeins, a box of Knit Picks comfy sport and a clear box of Scheepjes Catona and other cotton thread-like yarn. The drawer has safety eyes and other decorative pieces for amigurumi.
Then there's the hidden bag between the table above and my chair. This holds a current project and mostly Premier Everyday Yarn.
Now we move out of the living room to the rest of the stash. I have two drawers of yarn in the office. One is special yarn and the other is thread.
And one last stash area that developed when JoAnn's put the Bernat Maker Home Dec on clearance. This is in my closet.
So now you know about all of my hiding spots for yarn. I have plans for all of these - I just need a few decades to get them all done!
Next week I'll have the October voting ready. Here's a photo of one of the knitted sweaters in the issue. Can you guess what year it is?
