I was at Walmart the other day, and saw some of those little plastic three-drawer storage chests. I thought about my yarn, which used to sit nicely in a storage bin and had somehow reproduced to the point that it was chaotically taking over a corner of my game room. Hmm, I thought, these drawers would be great for yarn storage.
So I grabbed two of the three-drawer units and brought them home, pleased to have found such an affordable storage solution.
At home, I sorted my yarn by color, and set other supplies (buttons, mailing envelopes, etc.) to the side. When I was done, I began to fill up the drawers.
And a little while later, I headed back to Walmart...to pick up three more of the drawer units. Oops...guess I have more yarn than I realized.
I now have 13 drawers of yarn and two drawers of supplies. And as I look at my new yarn storage...
...I think I have a problem. A yarn-buying problem. How many brands of black yarn does one really need?! I've been holding back lately, trying to use yarns from my stash when appropriate, but then a friend called about a bunch of yarn at a garage sale, and, well, it was a great deal, so I had to buy it! And I must say, I really think all this yarn is inspiring and beautiful, and fun to look at, and nice to touch. I just need to actually use it!
Anyone want to order a hat...or a hundred? (One for every degree on the thermometer?)
