Plus I kept going back and forth on HOW to sort the yarn- color, weight, fiber? I finally settled on color sorting exclusively, with an exception for the thread, the baby yarn, and the fun fur. I also switched it to the cubes I we got at Costco for the linen "closet" at the old house. The result is much more pleasing.
And I have more room in the cubes! The clothes pins have little numbers written on them, to tell me how many skeins I have stored behind them. I decided to treat it like a store front and try to have unique yarns at the front, and duplicates behind them, out of sight. I love it :)
It's a lot of yarn, I know... But now that I can SEE it, I know what I have, and I can start using it first, before I run to Michaels to buy more. This collection is from the last decade, plus some even older than that.
While I was sorting the fabrics into the wire bins, Casper decided it would be a great place for a nap.
He's so full of energy, it's hard to get a photo of him on my phone, unless he's asleep. So here's another.
Isn't he a cutie?
I know it's dark, so I had to touch up the exposure, but I couldn't resist, as he was being too adorable!
