>I have finally done something about my wool stash. I know that I will never, ever use it all. I kept telling myself that I would eventually work my way through it all but in reality I know I never will.
So today I have had a sort out.
I now have three bin bags full of yarn that is destined for charity shops (which is where most of it came from in the first place).
You have no idea how good it feels to finally be free of it. I can see inside the cupboard now. I don’t have to pull out boxes of wool to get at things anymore. It’s like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. I know that sounds a bit over-dramatic but it’s true.
As I was throwing all the odd balls of yarn into the bin bags I was asking myself over and over again “why did I buy that?” Well, I know why I bought it – because it was there to be bought and it was cheap. It was a vintage yarn but what use is it really if there’s not enough to make anything with it?
So that’s that.
I’ve kept some of it, I think there’s enough for about four jumpers or tops and a few odd balls of 3ply for socks. I also kept some odd balls of 4ply so I can finish the mitred square blanket that I started ages ago – one day it will be finished.
I can’t decide what to do with my knitting machines. The only ones I’m likely to use now are the Knitmaster 4500, Silver Reed 280 and the Bond. That leaves the Knimasters 302, 321 and 151. I really don’t think I’ll ever use them again, they’ll probably stay under the bed gathering dust for the rest of my life. Do I get rid of them or do I keep them? I don’t know.
Talk to you later,
