What to do on a wet and rainy Sunday? I sat knitting for a while this morning, then decided I really needed to 'do' something. One of our bedrooms is a guest/craft room and my table was overloaded with "stuff". I've had a good sort out, new buttons into jars, patterns into folders, ribbons sorted and tidy (for a while).
I then sorted out all of the knitted items I seemed to have by me, some that are to go to charity, others as gifts. I tackled the yarn cupboard next! I already had a bag of odds and ends but decided that I would go through and sort all the odd balls and designate them to a charity yarn pile.
I then tipped out the bag and sorted all the odds and ends, bits that may just knit a row were also included. I now have a nice tidy box into which I will add ends as I finish projects. It amazed me how many shades of red there are in this box and to see what I actually had by way of odd balls.
The plan is only take charity projects to my knitting groups, leaving my main projects at home to work on at my leisure. A satisfying couple of hours and its still raining
