If I have any followers anymore I would be very surprised. I can’t believe I let the first half of this year slip away with only 2 posts written! Shameful, and I do apologize many times over. I know I’m not the first blogger to fall off blogging regularly or pretty much disappearing without a trace for several months. But I do feel bad about it. Thankfully things are looking up, at least for the blog and Compositions of Wool. I recently moved to a larger space that allows for more creative freedom. It also has more sunlight which my former place was lacking in spades which in turn meant I had less energy to write, craft, and generally be inspired. I’m a homebody and being happy with my home is absolutely essential. Anyway, all that is to say that I hope I can get back to posting more often. Graduate school is done yet again (yay for a new certificate!) so I have my free time back. I have several things to show you but until I can get them organized I figured I’d share how I packed and moved my yarn stash to my new home. (At the very least you’ll get a peek into what’s in my stash and colorful pictures to boot!)
Needless to say I’ve spent a lot of time (and money) building my yarn stash. It’s organized by weight and color between 2 hutches and then several smaller tubs for specific brands (Knit Picks Palette has 3 mid-sized containers all its own). For the things in the hutches I used larger plastic tubs to transport them. Within each tub I put a layer of yarn, a sheet of tissue paper, another layer of yarn, and so on until everything was packed.
And here are the tubs stacked neatly before being unpacked and put safely away in their respective place in my yarn hutches.
This all probably sounds pretty OCD and maybe a little over the top, but this was all in the interest of keeping things safe and together without turning into a giant mess. Unloading the yarn went really quickly since I didn’t have to sort through everything again. Of course while going through my yarn I also pulled out several skeins meaning there will be another giveaway soon! More details to follow but hopefully I can get them together by next week. :)
