Organization

Yesterday I bought two gorgeous yellow storage boxes and took all my wool and UFOs out of their various tote bags and did an overhaul of the entire stash. Photos to come.

Meanwhile, I have lots and lots of tiny balls of wool in one bag, five great big balls of two different colours and kinds of wool wound together, and a box of small balls of cotton wool - what do I do with all that?

Then, in the gorgeous yellow boxes I have, among others: a few skeins of fluffy yarn, ten skeins of Norwegian wool, a few skeins of cheap acrylic wool, 150g of gorgeous Icelaine wool, some just-purchased lovely sock yarn to use for socks for friends, and some other wool I received as presents.

I've actually, surprisingly, only got four projects on the go (another baby blanket with hood, a scallop edge blanket I started ages ago, the easy peasy tee, and the kilt hose) and once those are done, I'll have to find patterns to match all the wool I've now got on display in the gorgeous (that's thrice!) boxes.

Anyone have any favourite patterns they'd like to share?
