We've been doing a little rearranging around the house lately. We've gotten rid of our oversized chair, which I loved, but it just didnt fit in the living room very well. And since getting a nice, shiny laptop for my birthday, we've planned on trashing my computer desk that's taking up space in the bedroom. What better way to use that space than to put up some shelves etc for all of my yarn that's taking up closet space!
So the husband and I went shopping at Target, and got some of the ClosetMaid stuff. Voila! I can see my yarn now! I actually have a place to put it! Yay!
And we had found this nifty wine tube at JoAnn's. I thought I could store all of my straight needles in it. They wont fit in it if I put the top on, but it looks neat with them sticking out anyway. Sort of like a needle vase :)
I've been very excited about all of this, and eager to show it off. It isnt much, but it works, and looks nice.
Another thing I'm excited about is that I ordered some Harmony Wood dpns from KnitPicks, along with some yarn for a little shrug I've been dying to knit. The dpns are sock size, and I'm looking forward to learning how to make socks! The daughter has been bugging me to make her some, so she'll be the grand experiment! If all goes well, the husband will get a pair, and one of my best friends shall get some too (she's got sort of a sock fetish)!
Yay for storage and sock adventures. Now I'm off to more unpleasant things, like cleaning the bathroom. :(
