At this point in my organization efforts, I have two major challenges.
The first is creating storage for my myriad skeins of wayward yarn.
To that end this stash basket pattern found at the Purl bee has been an invaluable aid. While you might think that I have done so many of these that I could crochet them in my sleep, the truth is, I, like all other crocheters, must be awake to ply my craft, and stash bag 17 is what I worked on (and completed) today.
Inspired by this can of soda:
(which I bought to go with a limited edition Cheerwine flavored Kreme doughnut from Krispy Kreme), I began work on my 17th stash bag this past Saturday using a J hook and Red Heart Super Saver burgundy yarn. By Sunday evening, I had gotten this far:
Sunday, however, took my crochet in other directions, and it was not until this morning that I was able to focus my efforts on completing this bag. Alternately using Red Heart Super Saver cherry red with the burgundy used for the base of the bag, I finished the bag before dinner,
and filled it with some of my precious and irreplaceable vintage stash.
As for my second major challenge in this organizing effort (completing unfinished objects aka UFOs), I will have to get back to that first thing tomorrow.
