Today I'd like to share with you my new yarn space.
Since we moved into this new place my
yarn has been in bins and bags.
I found a sale on these wooden boxes and bought
some to stack the yarn in.
My collection is at the top of our spiral staircase
and I see it every day.
They are rough and you have to be careful
not to get slivers.
Come summer I shall take and paint them.
Not sure what colour yet..
Now I have all my yarn out where I can see it.
For inspiration and so I
can be prompted to get my crochet and knitting
Above is the box of my wool sock yarn.
For awhile I just made things with yarn because
I enjoyed the process.
Now I am working to be more purposeful in what I create.
For now it's socks.
Our winters are cold and my family needs warm socks on their feet.
It is a skill I'm glad that I have learned.
I also piled all of the balls of my crochet thread into this nice plastic bin.
I set my crochet binder (with all my patterns) and my
needle holder bag in on top.
The needle holder bag was a gift from a dear friend and I love
having all of my tools in one place so I can easily find them.
I just finished up another pair of socks.
These are for my youngest son since my older son's feet
are just a bit too big for them.
SO...now I have to make some "man sized" socks for him. :)
Yes, the socks do look a tad different...
the importance of making sure you have all your yarn from
the same dye lot!
This week has been great for outdoor activities.
The temperatures have been fairly mild and very little wind on the whole.
My boys wanted to go for a ski so we did and it was so fun
to explore the trails with them.
The hills were gradual so it was not bad to go up or down.
Of course they liked going down...but not so fast as to need protective gear.
We've had little flurries of snow but no big dumps and that is nice
for we've not had to shovel much.
The birds have been enjoying the feeders.
We now have some red poles and a sparrow that have discovered us.
It is interesting to watch all the different birds share the space.
They are getting used to the children
who like to stand or sit close by and watch
and chat with them.
I have heard a few people be able to make bird sounds perfectly...
a skill I've never been able to learn.
Thankfully they seem to enjoy hearing our language to.
I would also like to say thank you all so much for the comments that you
give. I treasure them all and enjoy hearing about your lives!
Hope you have a beautiful day!
Love and Prayers,
