We’re having a quiet holiday weekend around here. Still working on getting things organized and today I tackled the yarn bins. I knew I wanted to get some of them out of the nook and behind the longarm but I wasn’t really sure how I wanted to sort them until I started pulling the bins out and looking at the contents.
In Tampa, I’d sorted almost all the yarn into bins by how I use it – Blanket yarn, hat yarn, and scarf yarn. It turns out that moving all the blanket yarn to the longarm room was what I needed to do. There are 25 various size bins of it. I’m always working on a knit or crochet blanket so I’m not concerned about my ability to use all the yarn … as long as I stop buying more of it which shouldn’t be a problem at least in the short term because I have lots of blanket I want to make with the yarn I already have. It’s not pretty but I can get to everything.
Most of the bins are stacked along the back wall but there are a few under the longarm too.
The hat and scarf yarns are staying in the nook. Some of these bins are hats, scarves, and blankets waiting to be donated. I need to take care of that by the fall. The smaller bins are projects I’d started and set aside. I need to decide which ones I’m going to finish and which ones I’m not.
