the great yarn PURGE

Ideally this should never have to happen, but when you're moving across the country it becomes necessary to try your best to wittle down as much as possible. I went through all my yarn (no easy task i promise you) and sorted out the keepers and the less fortunates... and found all my purses too (i'm building up my inventory in hopes of securing a spot at a saturday market in the near future, maybe in Indiana). so, here is the process of sorting, and the mess i made on friday night...
these are my keepers, the yarns that had the most promise!

and another shot of the bags. i got everything now in just one of those monstrous plastic containers, which is great. and the other benefit of going through my whole stash is that now i'm inspired by all my yarns and have a million little projects stirring around in my mind... more to follow, i promise.

Wow, it's like yarn mecca! I can't believe how much you have! You're going to need a room for all your yarn someday! :) But it's always so inspiring to "clease" the stash, I can't wait to see all your new creative projects! You're probably busy with all the moving efforts, but I'm sure you manage to sneak in a bit of knitting. Oh, and I LOVE the purses! Those are gorgeous! Maybe you should open an etsy shop, then you could keep it up and going with all your new crafting. I love that one on the front right too! So fun! Love ya!

Hiya--Thanks for saying hello on my blog. Of course I remember you: You're the lovely music therapist who was knitting an adorable zebra toy and you have a guitarist husband. Yes? I'm sad that I didn't get to know you better while you were in Logan, but at least we can be blogger-friends. :)

I love your purses. I hope you find a nice marketplace for them.
