Does your yarn hang low?

Mine does! Phil finally put up my hanging yarn stash-something I've been dreaming about for around six months. With the exception of the bottom rack, all the yarn in the baskets is scrap (but with plans). The bottom is yarn (some of it) for a blanket I am making for Chris and Emily's wedding.

The yellow box in the back has my needles and doo-dads. I am planning on making a needle case soon. I am supposed to wait for our crafting night, but I don't think I can. It actually makes sense for me to try out the pattern first, anyway (which I realize is something of an excuse, but it still makes sense).

The rest of the pics includes the red yarn for a sweater I am actually going to make for ME (soccer mom sweater from Yarn Girl's Guide to Beyond the Basics), the green yarn for Phil's sweater (also from Yarn Girls, but from the first book and adapted). The brown yarn is more for the blanket.

I know Kristina's stash is next to her bed, Cristina's is in various baskets, and Beth's is in a basket. If anyone has ideas about how to stash the rest of my yarn, I'm open. Cristina is talking buckets for our first craft night, and that might be a good place for some stash...


FOs, UFOs, and Some Rambling

As promised to my various C/Kristinas, here are pics of the sock, along with some others. The first is of a former student of mine, Ashley, and the scarf I made her for Christmas. I really enjoyed making that one, and like the way it came out.

The second and third are of the sock. I couldn't get good pictures of the heel detail, which looks awesome and of which I am particularly proud. The sock is too dark. These are for Don's (my father-in-law) birthday.

The last is the beginning of my sweater for Phil. I promised him a sweater ages ago. Supposedly this is for his birthday, but you can see I haven't gotten very far, and his birthday is groundhog's day.

I am going to post pictures of my stash once it is finally done.
