First things first. I have a lot more yarn them I need and I keep acquiring more. I just flew home yesterday from Washington state and in my bag was 11 new skeins of yarn, from two different but wonderful yarn shops. I stopped at So Much Yarn first and later at Maker’s Mercantile and neither one was disappointing. Both received 5 star reviews from me on Yelp and on their Facebook pages.
I also ordered some more yarn online while I was on my trip and it will be arriving early next week. What else did I order? A shelving unit that better suits my needs and takes up a bit less floor space in my craft room.
This morning I grabbed a screw driver and a hammer and built the unit and started loading it up. I put all my sewing and crafting books into two of the spaces, and the rest will be dedicated to yarn.
The bottom left square has my luxury / natural fiber yarns, and the top two /middle ones with yarn is my Red Heart Super Saver. I was able to take my skeins I had stored in totes out and put them on display. The bottom middle and two empty spaces will hold the Caron Simply Soft I ordered when it arrives.
I was able to spread this yarn out more and arrange it better by type and brand. The two uppermost left are all Charisma yarn, which is my favorite bulky, and the two next to them in the middle is all Bernat Softee which has lovely colors but I’ve honestly not yet used. The second one from bottom on the right is all my sock yarn. I have tons and still haven’t tried knitting socks… Lol.
Of course what I really need to do in there is vacuum the carpet and clean off my tables but I’ll do that later… Eventually… One day? Lol
