Hubby's plain vanilla socks with FLK heels. The orange marker is where I was last week. Both of them are now on the same row count. This week, I will be increasing the number of stitches so they will be able to fit over hubby's calves. Not sure when they will be completed. There are other projects needing to be started ASAP plus another project that I started last month that I need to give some love to or it will not be completed in time for an October birthday.
They are just perfect for putting my yarn into and will keep the yarn a bit more protected from dust. It also makes it much easier for me to find what I am looking for since all I need to do is pull out a basket and look into it rather than bending over and trying to reach into the back of a cubicle which is 15 inches deep. When these arrived, I just 'threw' my yarn into the baskets. This week I would like to take the time to organize it a bit more. The baskets on the left have all my DK weight and the ones on the right have all my fingering weight yarns.
There are three of these storage units in my craftroom. Well, one in my craftroom and two in the craftroom closet. The one you are looking at is in the room itself. I got these cloth baskets off of Amazon too. Most of them are holding my worsted weight yarn and one of them is holding my lace yarn. The ones in the closet hold my cotton yarn and my WIPs. Those are now in these baskets. It is nice to have the yarn more protected. Plus, this way people don't gawk at the amount of stash yarn I have when they walk into my craftroom.
