Yarn Work Is Not Always Glamorous

She who is a crocheting miracle and I set out to clean the yarn studio.  Actually, she told me that "we" were going to do it.  I had no choice.  But once we started we worked without stopping and at such a speed that a mere three hours later, the deed was done.

 The day started with dumping and pulling and culling.  Great thought was put into the task.

Is this ten yards actually usable or tossable?

Can this half skein be donated?

What program benefits from these hats we forgot about?
She who crochets started in the far dark corner.  The good news is that we own a bag of stuffing.  The bad news is I never sewed up the bear. 

Some areas were easy to reorganize.  I'm not much for color organization - or yarn weight either.  Most of the sock yarn is in bins, but the open hanging things let me see a lot at one time.

I'm a big picture type and being able to see "it all" encourages me to mix and mingle in new ways.

Someone else is more of the "whole project in one spot" type of organizer.  One room, one closet and we are both able to have our own method.

Over the years, our storage devices have been cobbled together.  It's mostly a mix of left over organization methods that we stuffed into the closet.

She is really organized. 

All in all, it was a super morning.  And we did such a fabulous job of getting "everything" stored away, that the floor could be cleaned. 

Yes, I actually vacuumed!  It felt good.

What you are not seeing (yet) is the pile of hats, scarfs and yarn that we can donate.  Everyone benefits from the effort.  And that feels really really good.
