Since, in a few days I will be moving, last week I decided it was high time to pull out and organize the stash, needles and notions. I should have tried to stab myself in the brain instead, I wouldn’t have noticed the difference.
6 simply soft – for the now Moderne Mini Lap-ghan & projects undetermined
4 db cotton dk – perhaps a ribbed bolero?
1 db cathay – fetching
2 alpaca silk – karo’s argyle in hibernation
1 kid silk mohair – ??? Ideas ???
2 rowanspun tweed dk – Le’Slouch
5 burgundy x-press – Skating Sweater
5 cream x-press – Shopping Tunic #2
1 navy x-press – (aviator hat?)
1 candy floss – ??? Ideas ???
1 green super bulky – ??? Ideas ???
1 green tape yarn- ??? Ideas ???
2 lace brown – ascot
6 dishcloth cotton – mom’s dishcloths
2 baby alpaca misti wstd – various hats for christmas
2 purple merino superwash – fetching + Trifecta
That, is a whole nights worth of untangling. 7 whole hours trying to undo what my lovley marley did in a matter of minutes. In the end, I could not save it all, having rather to choose what to save. I lost much of the brown laceweight and green tape yarn since they were ensnaring the more expensive yarns; I had to cut them free. The rest I painstakingly wound and wove back into managable balls.
Proper organization helps preparing for future projects. In my case, I realize now I have enough yarn for about 6 or 7 projects- if the cat doesn’t get to it first. I need good storage options to “Marley proof”.
Right now I’m torn between some ikea boxes and an old chest that I hope to renovate.
I have no hope in hell hiding anything in the new apartment, so I’m opting for a piece I can display or get double use from.
(lol, yarn kaskett: when old stash yarn is sent to pasture)
