Ros, from the comments, suggested that if I only had a basket, there would be nothing stashed behind my sofas! Rest assured Ros, I do not have just one basket. I actually might be hiding some WIP's under/behind my sofa... but let's not dwell on that. Anyways, she wanted to see my WIP basket, or baskets, as the situation really stands. So here you go! I'll explain as we go.
I have a dedicated "yarn closet". In this closet lives most of my stash, and most of my projects. (I say most because, lets be honest, the yarn is everywhere, it's like tribbles) A lot of my WIP's live in little shoeboxes on the top of said closet. See exhibit A:
The things that are hiding in those shoeboxes are as follows: Norwegian Luskofte's in Red and Blue, vest, blanket, set of squares for CAL blanket, set of daisy's for Daisy Chain blanket, some socks....I'd show you these but I didn't feel like causing a
box-valanche, and there's a lot more pictures coming.
Exhibit B: The original WIP basket...
Exhibit C: The pumpkins
Exhibit D: That other blanket
Exhibit E: The BIG BASKET
Some twerp mentioned a loom was great for stash-busting. LIAR! all I've found is that it gives you a reason to start up a new stash. This is the "Scarf for Rob"
Exhibit G: The Purple People Eater
I had to dangle over the arm of the couch to take this shot. What you can't see is that that basket is crammed full of blanket. There's an entire rubbermaid container of yarn dedicated to this project hiding under my bed. I'd have dug it out but that will ruin future surprises.
Exhibit...H: (I lost track there) THE BEAST
Exhibits I & J: Beast Yarns
Yes, thats a whole basket, and a whole cube in the yarn closet. No, I don't want to hear it.
I might be a bit of a basket case....All that is made me a little overhwelmed. I think I'll take a walk and go check my mail for that yarn I ordered. And maybe work on that hat...and then I'll have a little lie down and go hide all this back where it goes again.
