Look, storage!

A belated Valentine's Day post, as my love got me an Expedit bookcase from Ikea to store the stash. What do you think? He's a keeper, isn't he.

Of course, this means I have to organize it a little. My darling non-knitter thought I might do it by color. I had to gently tell him that by yarn weight is usually a better way to sort things. This means I have to get the rest of the stash from Gloucester, too.

Still going back and forth on the house. It will be very bittersweet to sell it but for the best. At least I still have a little antique cottage in Bath, mere blocks from Halcyon Yarns!

Progress continues on Michael's sweater. I'm about two-thirds of the way up sleeve two (yay!) and will soon be joining that one to the rest of the gang. And I'm slowly working on the Swallowtail Shawl whenever I know I'll be able to concentrate a little more (or whenever I can't take any more stockinette!).


  1. How funny I have that bookshelf too and I just love it! Great for organizing yarns. Ikea makes really cute matching storage bins that are paper/cardboard that fit perfectly into the squares. I use it for misc skeins/projects on the bottom shelf to keep everything organized and dust free.

  2. Congratulations on your home offer! I can't wait until you can close the book on this chapter of your life. Is it a decent offer?


what do you think?
