 I found this gift voucher that we'd been given last Christmas, and hadn't used.  I asked Tim whether it would be OK to spend it on some plastic drawers to store my yarn stash in.  He agreed that this would be a good use of the money (£10) as it would enable me to see all my yarn at the same time and to decide what I was going to do with it before I spent any more money on the sort of thing that I already had.  (Stop laughing at the back!)

So that's what I did.  I found a small set of drawers for exactly the money on the gift card, and brought them home.  I assembled them (such as was needed - basically just sticking a set of casters on), and prepared to fill them when I got five minutes to myself.

That five minutes came this evening.  I set to, and sorted out the balls of wool from the various places they had been stashed over the past few years.

I have 3 balls of sock wool.  1 skein of lace-weight.  Some acrylic oddments that aren't big enough for anything meaningful, or nice enough to want to knit a whole jumper out of them.  That's it.  I've knitted EVERYTHING ELSE!!!!!  I feel oddly bereft, but also virtually guiltless on the yarn-front as I swore I wouldn't buy anything else until I'd knitted everything else up.  I'm almost there!  If I have a little money and see something nice, I think I can allow myself to consider to getting a ball or two to lay away....  Hurrah!

I think I shall turn the acrylic oddments into a series of granny squares to make a nice afghan out of - after all, the world needs more snuggly blankets :-)

Of course, the flip side to this is that I also seem to have acquired rather a lot of quilting fabric.  One of the drawers will be given over to that instead, I think!  Time to switch focus and start quilting, I think...

Gosh. I have way too much stuff because I have so many hobbies that involve fabric and thread. I have had to stop knitting, and keep looking at the bags containing what I was knitting and wondering if perhaps I could just fininsh those!!!!

Hope you enjoy your quilting.
