1. The UPS man came today and brought 20 beautiful balls of Nashua Handknits Cilantro for the projects I'm doing for them. So nice that they sent them Next Day Air- I figured they wouldn't come until late in the week.
2. Lots of progress on the SWTC projects- the sweater should be done in a day or two and the Top Secret Project soon after.
3. I spent a few hours last night cleaning out the Yarn Closet- I decided to switch from organizing by weight to organizing by fiber. It somehow looks nicer this way. I was surprised to find that I have quite a bit of silk- I didn't realize that. I also filled one large Rubbermaid container with yarn for current (so I don't have to carry ALL of it at once in my bag) and immediately upcoming projects. It's full:
(2 bags Cilantro, 3 bags SWTC Karaoke- 2 colors, 1 bag SWTC Gianna, 1 bag Noro Silk Garden, and 1 bag of angora blend for my Bohus)
Once I get through this I can try hacking away at my stash- currently at 15 Rubbermaid boxes (only one of these is a huge one, though). I've never succeeded at yarn diets and I get a lot of samples from yarn companies too, so the pile just gets bigger no matter what, it seems. I guess I shouldn't complain!
