Yesterday a package arrived from The Loopy Ewe. This is the package that took the scenic route – from Colorado to Nebraska to Texas but spent about five days in Abilene. I still have my Camp Loopy package coming and, of course, I’ll share photos when that package arrives.
Even though I have more yarn than I’ll ever use . . maybe . . depends on who you ask . . I still like to get a bit of new yarn sometimes. That’s ok, right?
This is Stonehedge Crazy. According to The Loopy Ewe, it’s called Crazy because . . well, you can read by clicking on the link. Because this yarn does sell out quickly, I’ve always missed it but this time, I think I saw a TLE video on Facebook that it was in and was able to grab some. I do have a specific project in mind for it.
In my never ending attempt at getting organized, I’ve decided that having different bags helps. I have so many plain bags and so many that are the same – plain navy, plain purple, plain green . . even though I have tags on them that tell me what project is in which bag, my new plan is that any “cute” bag will have a grab and go project. All the yarn for the project will be in that bag, along with anything I need to work on it so if I get a call that I need to go somewhere (right . . where do I need to go?), I just grab one or two or four bags, depending on where I’m going and how long I’ll be gone.
I’ve thought of leaving yarn in Missouri, or leaving specific projects in Missouri but I know as soon as I do that, I’ll end up wishing I had whatever is there so I’m just going to leave probably a bit of sock yarn and maybe the yarn for one shawl there, and otherwise, take projects back and forth with me.
This is the bag the new yarn went into (the yarn shown above). I doubt I get to work on that project til after the August Camp Loopy project is finished.
This bag now holds the current project I’m working on. I need to do a blog post about that one. Next post!
This little bag will hold probably yarn for two pairs of socks. I’ll go ahead and get one pair started and up to the point of just knitting happily along without counting and that will be another good grab & go project.
That’s it for that box. Now back to that project in Bag #2.
