My New Year’s resolution is to organize all of my yarn, knitting books and patterns, and my knitting needles. I think this resolution is important for me because my living room is a mess. There are balls of yarn all over the place, spilling out of baskets and rolling across the floor. The yarn gets tangled and I can’t find what I need when I want it. To make sure I’ll keep my resolution, I’m going to buy a big bookcase and sort out all of my knitting supplies on the shelves. Then, whenever I use something, I’ll put it back where it belongs. If I break my resolution and end up with yarn balls and knitting books all over the place again, I won’t allow myself to buy any new yarn until I get organized. I suggest that other people make a similar resolution to mine. Although others might not have the yarn mess that I have, I’m sure they have something messy they need to organize, like their desks, their take-home folders, and their backpacks!
Well, people, I'm not letting any grass grow under me. I tackled Knitterly Resolution #1. I went out to Ikea yesterday and bought myself a yarn wall.
Here's Emmie behing helpful during the building process. My boy was a huge help, too. It was definitely a 2-person job. And I only swore a few times. They were very bad words, but there weren't too many of them. Really.
This is just some of that string she was talking about.
The yarn wall is partially loaded and stocked, with Emmie trying to convince me to save her a spot.
And I present for your viewing pleasure . . . the yarn wall.
Knitterly resolution #1 . . . check.

A happy find: Yarn Ball Boogie - a blog written by a very entertaining man. I want to invite him over for dinner. Too bad I don't cook.
Happy New Year!
