I am going to get the fibre room cleaned up and organized, and hopefully, this time it’ll stay that way!
Proper infrastructure solves a lot of untidiness problems, and I definitely do not have proper infrastructure for all the wool and fibre I have here. I have a set of those wire cube shelves, but they are a bit wobbly and not as sturdy as one might hope … and things tend to get piled on the floor and eventually, you can’t walk in that room at all.
Part 1 of the Stash Management Plan was implemented today. I cut two 5’ pieces of 1x2 (we had some here, it’s what we use for baseboards and trim) and marked it at one foot intervals. The coat hooks I picked up at the hardware store the other day were then attached at the marked spots, and the boards screwed directly to the wall in the fibre room. I found reuseable shopping bags at Michaels (the craft store) for a dollar each, and bought ten of those for yarn storage: you can’t beat that price, and it’s easy to grab the bag that contains the relevant fibre stash (sock yarn, bulkier wool, miscellaneous acrylic for mitts and toys, cotton, warp thread, random handspun, etc.) and take the whole bag to the couch for swatching and pondering. Thus, there is now a Wall o’ Wool …
There’s also all of this to be dealt with:
Which is why I said “Part 1”.
Stay tuned for more.
