Brrrr it sure is cold today. I feel very lucky that I have another 4 day weekend. Yay! I made a run this morning to the big WalMart and came home loaded with goods. But I want to know WHO went out and bought all those hampers I mentioned?????? I could not find any of those hampers today. I asked a sales clerk and she told me those were probably bought for back-to-school. And that makes sense because I have had mine for dirty clothes for a few months. Sigh. She did show me where the other hampers were and I nabbed the LAST one they had. I actually like the one I found today better because there is no hole in the top like the one I bought last fall. Less likely a moth can get into the hamper. Yay. I ran over to the smaller WalMart here in town and they only had the mesh type with no lid. That won’t work. I think tomorrow I’ll hop over to Target and see what they have. I’m determined to get this stash organized by weight PLUS I hope to gain some space or at least have it contained in the space I have. lol
Thanks to Carolyn, Anita, Laura, Michelle, Sue, Tasha, Chris, Pam and Terri for your comments. Now Terri knows I found the fish stitch markers….don’t tell Karen! She still doesn’t know. 🙂
I wore my new Koigu scarf this week. I got several nice compliments on it. I really do like it….not to thick nor too long. It’s warm enough without being too much and I love how it looks.
I cast on a new scarf this week. No pictures yet but I’ll take some over the weekend. It’s a linen stitch with a solid and variegated Cherry Tree Hill. Funny I have about 4-6 skeins of Cherry Tree Hill and this is the first time I’ve ever knitted with it. So far I love it.
Ok, I stopped and took a picture of the new hamper.
As you can see it is full. That is three 27 qt bins of fingering weight yarn. Ugh, I have too much yarn. But the good side is I think my hamper storage system may be a winner. I’ll have to find more of the hampers to see if I can rearrange the stash closet to know for sure.
I guess that is all for now. I hope all you have a warm, safe and very Happy New Year! Lexi and I are gonna celebrate tonight. I know she is anxious with anticipation. 😉
