I think I have finally reached the point in my knitting life where I am actually experiencing stash overflow!!

Now for most knitters, this has happend a long time ago. And they will probably laugh at my little stash, but for me, living in a room the size of a bathroom (no joke), my stash is starting to scare me……….

here it is from above, a slightly smaller that original FMB full to the brim with odd skein’s of yarn.

Look underneath, a pretty IKEA basket also full of yarn.

I have decided I need to take action. I just love IKEA, so when I stumbled uppon these baskets, I knew I needed them!!!

Aren’t they cute? And perfect for knitting! (notice the needles in one hanging off the wall?) And they look like they have been croched, but they are made of plastic! Ingenious!! Yes, I will deffinatly be making a trip to IKEA this weekend.

Oh, bag update! I finishe my knitting bag, and it’s so pretty!!

Here is a matching notions bag:

As for project spectrum, I have no clue what I am going to do. I kind of want to make a yellow/orange dress and maybe knit a belt or bracelet to go with it. What I really need is my mommy to take me to IKEA and the fabric store 😀 Except I think they are closed tomorrow so I may have to wait till Monday………. I hope I can get these things this weekend! I need something to keep me sane………


P.S. I decided to change my template to give it a brighter look for spring.

I needed something to kick my sorry butt back into knitting. So, I joined the project spectrum and made myself a pretty knitting bag to force myself to want to knit.

I have no clue what to make for April, lets see, yellow and orange……….. if it helps I had a dream that I bought yellow yarn and made a hat. Maybe I should…….. well I promise to start updating my blog again……….. I will start by posting pictures of my perdy pink knitting tote and whatever I decide to make for project spectrum.
