Is It Spring Yet??
I am soooooo ready for Spring, but looking at the 4-5 foot snowbanks in my yard, it feels like Spring is not a happening thing here in the mountains any time too soon. This little Robin sits atop my computer screen. She has been sitting there for many years and always brings a smile to my face come this time of year. Nestled with her in the snow are a few skeins of Lorna Laces sock yarn .........I couldn't resist the Spring color of Crocuses. It will still be many a week before we even see a hint of Snowdrops or Crocuses poking their noses out
Yesterday after looking at Julia's blog, I went around the house taking pictures, thinking yup.......I too live in a wool house.
What you see here is the little nook between my office desk and my file cabinet.......a huge stash catch-all!
Believe it or not, my office shredder is hiding behind there, but you could break your neck just trying to reach it.
What A Mess This Wool House is Becoming!!!
On to the living room.......this is where I spend the bulk of my spinning and knitting time and boy, does it show. Where my computer/loom room is my "stash" room, the living room is , well.........a lived in room...<grin>......can you tell?
Then we move onto the hallway. We live in an old New England Farm house with a pretty large front hallway, that no one really uses, except to go upstairs.........another perfect spot for stashes galore
HOLEY MOSES.................How did I let this happen???
After looking at those pictures, I decided that I needed to pretend it was Spring and do some heavy duty cleaning out. Being stuck inside this winter has made me a careless housekeeper........eeekkkk!
Hey........you can see my shredder. The rovings in that basket were all labeled and put into plastic bags. Any roving that I didn't think I would use, went into a basket for a future sale.
I have decided that I need to finish up my various knitting projects before I dress the loom again, so I cleaned and oiled the loom and folded both beams, tucking my sheepskin covered bench in tight next to the treadles.
Next it was onto the living room. My DH likes to refer to this chair as my throne...LOL This is usually where my piles tend to accumulate. See.........no piles!! Tucked in the far corner is a basket with the few works in progress and another small basket with empty spinning bobbins.
My stool has storage under the lid and that is where my knitting needles live. The X and O vest is sitting ready to be worked on. More about that in my next post...ggrrrrr. No new un-commissioned projects until it is finished!
(That nasty paneling is going as soon as the kitchen is finished)
My large triangle loom hiding behind the wheel is going to be taken apart and stored until it is time for a project to go onto it.
Whew!! Thanks Julia................I probably never would have accomplished all of this today, if your blog hadn't inspired me to start taking pictures! Flylady would surely be proud of me! Look for a big stash sale this Spring........
