It's snowing today, April 1st...not a joke. It's a good day for doing inside things, and a yarn basket tidy is way overdue.
I've said it once or twice before, it is not my nature to hoard yarn, crochet thread or anything else. I don't have shelves of yarn all crammed in color coded somewhere in my home. I have one simple place I put both my yarn and thread. All the yarn/thread I own is in this container, a simple lovely basket made by a simple Amish person/family. It stands about 3-4' tall. I am surrounded by almost every ball or skein I own, I have a few MIA's which are probably in my travel bag.
When it is full, I don't buy anymore period. I don't buy more shelves, boxes, tubs or buckets.
I just make something..a novel concept.
I have over the past few months used up a couple of thread skeins, and so on a recent trip to Hobby Lobby, picked up a few from the vast selection of lovely #10 crochet threat. I don't have room for many or the lid on my container won't close. So I chose just three, Antique,Coin, and Sweet Pea. The colors are rich and deep, they remind me of Victorian colors, right up my alley.
