Wool Glorious Wool

I don't know about you guys but as soon as Christmas is over I seem to want to Spring Clean the place.  The decorations all come down and get packed away and then the house looks bare and messy.  So I tidy.....or at least, as all those who know me well........I try to tidy.  

Tucked up to be for another year.
This year the focus of my attentions seem to be cupboards and boxes that have been neglected for a very long time.
After 6 years of knitting and crochet, I finally got around to tidying up my little wool store.  In a way I was kind of sad to do's like a little piece of modern art in  my cupboard....or rather, was.

I love the colours all mixed in together, so pretty.  But impossible to get wool out when you really want it.
And here is the finished box.  All neat and tidy.  I put all my little bits of wool into plastic bags so they won't tangle again.  I feel super what's next?

My latest project.  A Spiked Granny Square Cushion, this time for my front room.  I can't wait to see the finished item.

What have you been up to in your first days of 2013?

  1. Same as you I take down all the decorations after Christmas and pack them up! This weekend I will be going to the flower market to buy some spring flowers. I need some fresh colours in my home!
    Great job on the wool :)

    1. It's quite a nice feeling isn't it? Now I need flowers :)

  2. I agree, once the Christmas decorations come down the house does look bare... Looking outside, the trees look so bare, and gray... Spring flowers would sure brighten things up!!

  3. oh yes...spring flowers! I'm in the midst of taking down my Christmas decorations, and then cleaning my studio which doubles as a guest house. I like the new organized wool collection, but I can never figure out what to do with all those small amounts of yarn, but I hate to throw them out too. The colors on your granny square looks great together, share a picture when the afghan is completed.

  4. I wish I could do something with wool! My mum and my sister are excellent crocheters but I just never learned. One day maybe....

    1. You must learn, it's so easy and addictive!! Can you knit?

  5. I took most of my Christmas decor down yesterday, and it does feel really bare in here. Sigh. Reminds me of all the work we still need to do on the house!

  6. Fun colors, and a good way to use up leftover bits of yarn.
