That isn't quite all of it - the cream aran to make the other blanket is in the wardrobe upon which those boxes rest. And the yarn I'm currently knitting a cardigan out of is downstairs, where I do my knitting. But that is, essentially, it. There's also some fabric and sewing bits and pieces in that wardrobe.
The reason it's all looking so tidy is that I got a great big bag of yarn from a lovely lady on Freecycle, and it prompted a big sorting-out session. In the end I kept only a few balls of the new-to-me yarn, and got rid of about the same amount of my yarn that I didn't want to keep. Also some that Mum gave me when I was learning to crochet that I'm going to give back. I told my friend Sarah she could have the big bag of yarn I'm now getting rid of, then I accidentally mentioned it to my mother, so now I'm going to have to split it into two.
It's lovely having everything so tidy, though, and knowing that I only have things that I've decided to keep. Some of it I have plans for, some of it not. If only there were a few more hours in the day so I could actually make all the things I'm dreaming of.
