Organizing My Yarn

I spent all of yesterday organizing my yarn and ended up with two large (18 gallon size) Rubbermaid storage totes and four file boxes. The storage totes hold my sock yarns and the others everything else. Everything is sorted by type of yarn and color. I also sorted my leftover sock yarn into gallon ziplock bags. I have two filled with fingerweight leftover and one with heavier (sock and dk weight). I'm hoping to use these to make Monstersocks.

I found some yarns I'd forgotten I had. I also couldn't find some I was certain I had, but I'll keep looking!

Wearing Socks!

The weather folks are predicting snow and freezing rain today so I'm wearing my socks. They may look strange paired with a skirt, but my feet will be warm!

Citron Vert Baby Socks

Lime Baby Socks, the first pair for 2011! I am busy knitting shop samples for the four classes I'll be teaching in the next couple of months and won't be able to work on more socks until I'm done. Hopefully, that will be by the end of next week!

These socks are made of leftover yarn, 100% Superwash merino wool yarn in fingering weight, I bought on Etsy from Evermore Studios on Etsy. I used size 2 needles and the stitch pattern is a double seed stitch.

I am being overwhelmed with baskets full of small balls of wool yarn left over from my sock knitting. What to do? I was intrigued by this idea which I first saw on a blog I read regularly, SockLadySpins. What a great idea! I may try that!
