Yarn Diet

It's the weekend and the sun is shining. The temperature has risen to a barmy 5 above. Yeah!!!

This means that I'm putting off a dreaded chore for another day. The storage boxes are ready and the intent is there but who can waste a day like this in February?

For another day I'm putting off sorting through my wool stash. In fairness all my wool is sorted. I've got organised grouped boxes labelled, org DK, org 4,  nonorg 4, nonorg DK, nonorg CH, nonorg SCH. What I need to do is sort my scraps into the same. I don't throw anything yarn related away.

I've also promised myself that I won't buy another ball of wool until I've used up my stash but any knitter will know that won't happen. The yarn diet is something we often chat about on the knit1treble2 team. You can find their blog full of gorgeous yarn related treasuries here.

One of our team, the lovely Alice from The Sequinned Sheep posted this on Twitter earlier today and I just had to share it with you. Sit back and enjoy!

Have a great weekend!

It's not just knitters! You should see the stockpiles of different colours and thickness glass that I have! And I haven't touched it in ages! Need to get back to my glass work next week!
