Keeping things neat and organized makes a space not only pleasant to look at but locating things much easier. I'm a well organized person by nature and nurture. I was probably the neatest kid in school with an actual organized toy box (so not kidding). And I also was taught well by the US military… Continue reading Taming the Yarn Beasts
In making the multi-coloured, multi-stitch afghan, I'm ending up with a bunch of smaller scrap yarn pieces. Some pieces are not even long enough to make it across the blanket with single crochet stitches. I have a pile of them which started to get messy and tangled.

I'm back in my thoughts of what to do for my next project, fiber art this time for sure. I have just completed a project for myself recently.
