There are 6 empty containers here. 2 are larger ones, and 4 are smaller size bins. One large container comes from getting rid of the Cascade 220 that was excess. The rest, just sound reorganizing. I also have a shelf that is almost free in the wool room.
That is what a good sort and order accomplishes. Well that and a couple other things.
Once I had all the bits and pieces of sock yarn from the various baskets and bags that it was stuffed in, I had to move to a much larger container for sock yarn. If you ever doubt that sock yarn breeds, come see mine. I am positive it does.
Another surprising bit. Sock yarn ends breed too. More of the bits than I though I had left. More culling in my future and I don't see that as a bad thing at all.
Then, there was seeing things with fresh eyes. I don't generally forget yarns that I have but on occasion, when playing in the boxes and boxes of it, I see new combinations and new projects for a yarn. Playing in yarn always inspires.
While I have a sound stash of sweater yarns, I am quite surprised at the amount of small project yarns I have. I could knit small shawls or hats and mittens till the cows come home.
Which kind of brings me to my absolute. I need to knit more for me. I need to knit more for my kiddies. I need to knit more for my daughters. I just need to knit more.
