I really did not realize how much yarn I have. Even when we were packing up our things I did not get to see all my yarn together because as soon as the boxes were packed they were carried out of our apartment. When the container came all the boxes were stacked in the middle of our living-room. Later, as we recovered from seeing all 204 boxes together we started separating them. DH decided to put his foot down and demanded that at least to begin with that living room would be declared yarn-free zone (storage only, I can of course use yarn there as much as I want to). So all yarn was put together in our bedroom. Wow! Instant yarn overload! It took me about a week to tame it! Now some of the yarn is in the storage room (five huge Rubbermaid totes), some is under the beds also in plastic storage containers. The rest… DH has stacked up three plastic storage units one on top of another. Kind of like Lego’s for big people. And taped them up to add stability. We now have 3 of these towers. One leftover unit has been pressed in to service as a night table/UFO catcher. And the three smaller units ended up on top of each tower. I will need the step ladder to get to them, but they are not taking up floor space, which is at the premium. I finally made it to the Yarn Shop here (post and photos will follow)and yes, I have to admit that I got more yarn at home than they got at the store. And I do not feel apologetic at all. Just the opposite. I feel quiet satisfaction of a good housekeeper with a well stocked up pantry.
