Day 3 Knitting & Crochet Blog Week

Knitting and Crochet Blog Week Banner Pink

Day Three: 30th March. Tidy mind, tidy stitches.

How do you keep your yarn wrangling organised?

Tips: Many people use their blogs partly as an organisational tool – logging and cataloguing projects and newly attained skills, projects and modifications. Did you bare this in mind when you began blogging?containers1The top container is full of lovely 16 ply wool in luscious colours from Rowan’s days at the Steiner school.

The bottom one is full of lovely wool oddballs. I just can’t resist the basket of oddballs on sale. ;-)containers2More ‘on sale’ stuff. When I taught at Spotlight I had to walk past the sale tables as I arrived & left, & I could never resist the wool sales.containers3Odd balls of novelty yarns.needlesMy knitting needles & crochet hooks, I have quite a collection!!!

chestchest2 This lovely chest holds a cardi that only needs to be sewn together, mind you when I looked at it recently I don’t think it will fit.  Also my wip freeform knitting & crochet, plus all the yummy blue, green & purple yarns.harryAnother ufo, ‘Harry Potter,’ of course stored in a Harry Potter bag. :-) helen bag    Another ufo which i will get back to soon & stored in this fabulous bag my dear friend Helen brought back from Germany for me. My high school German tells me it’s saying what a dear friend I am, roflol!!!!

I started blogging to keep track of what I was doing, to motivate me to finish things & to have a record of what I’d done. I purposely keep my blog ‘positive.’ Not that I have a problem with people who don’t, I just sometimes use it to cheer myself up so if I added in the bad stuff it wouldn’t work. I hope that makes sense.

My little photographic assistant. As soon as the camera appears, so does he. :-)

A little blurry, well he was trying to smooge the camera, lol.

I can't believe how much wool you have! I haven't done any knitting for years, but with the lovely yards around now, it is tempting, pity the Queensland winter is so short!

I've been buying wool for decades, lol. I gave away heaps before we moved last year, so I was really surprised when I got it all in one place to sort, how much I still had!!!!
I think the move to colder Melbourne has helped lure me back to knitting & crocheting.
