Even if we have been in our new place for over a year now, almost all my yarns and WIPs were stored in cardboard boxes. Many many boxes stored in the office, aka the "storage room".
Over the holiday break, we decided to empty the office and convert it in a nursery. We manage to get everything out without cluttering the other rooms. Let's just say that many trips to IKEA were made.
It meant that I had to sort, organise and manage my yarn stash. I had dreaded this moment, but I had no choice. I had to do it. It took one complete afternoon : Dear BF was at work, I put some music on, made myself a cup of tea and opened the first box. I sorted yarns, putting some away, donating others, keeping beloved skeins. I frogged WIPs, discovered unfinished yet gorgeous sweater that went in the "to finish" pile. I classified, stored and labeled storage boxes. It was easier and less dreadful that I imagined. It kinda brought my knitting mojo back.
It helped bring it back so much that I casted on for some serious projets that need knitting commitment.
My Fair Isle baby blanket, using five colors of Knit Picks Palette. I know this one will take forever and might not be finished before baby arrives. Still I really love how it's turning out. Oh, and it's my pattern. AND I'm working a steek for the first time (aaah!).
My beekeeper's quilt by Tiny Owl Knits. Needless to say that this one too will take forever. I try not to think about how many hexipuffs (which are absolutely addictive to make) I will need to make the quilt. I just keep on making them with leftovers and underloved sock yarn skeins. You can see some of leftover handspuns too in the lot.
Don't be fooled, there is plenty of other WIPs on my needles.
