It started with that little duck Halloween hat for Colson. It was so fast. It was so cute. I was smitten. I can't stop the cute. I had to crochet another one, with the proper eyes. Adorable, isn't it?
Then, I found this cute owl pattern on etsy, so I crocheted some of them. I ended up modifying this one quite a bit. I'm on a roll now.
This latest one is my favorite. I plan on donating these to Heather's Ranger group who are raising money to go to Halifax next summer. I think people will like these.
And guess what this is? No, its not my favorite yarn shop. Its my bedroom, and it makes me so happy to see all my yarns on display like this. It makes them so accessable. I've kind of organized them by colour. Also, the quantities that I have in sweater's worth are in those duvet bags under neath the pile of feltable sweaters that are folded on top. I still have large quantities of yarn in the living room and some downstairs. When I get another square shelving unit, I will stack it on top of the existing one, and add more yarn. My self striping yarns are hung on the closet rod, in the hanging shoe units. Works in progress and spinning fiber are hung in bags over the closet rod. Pretty clever isn't it. I've shown some of my friends this picture, and they can hardly believe I have that much yarn. I don't tell them about the shelving unit in the living room.
