We had a yarn room tidy up this week, Mr Weaving Heart came across some shelving that works really well for storage of said yarn so it motivated me to sort everything out. Our back room now looks fabulous and is my favourite room in the house because it’s so bright and cheerful with everything within reach.
This makes me a very happy yarner!
You might spot the edge of a Sophie’s Garden at the bottom, this is my new stool made from a kit I was given for Christmas; this is also something I love. It’s a kit you can buy from Wool Warehouse and was a very simple make, the instructions are online via Look at What I Made and they include photos, tutorials and everything you might need if you’re a crochet novice.
Isn’t it cute? I’ve had another kit finish too, again a kit from Wool Warehouse, this time an Attic24 one for a jolly chunky bag; I had visions of me using it at the Edinburgh Yarn Fest to fill with lovelies but I think it’s a little too easily dipped – not that there will be lots of pick pockets there but you can never be too careful…
All this colour really helps my mental health, I can get low, especially at this time of year, and being surrounded by yarn and brightness is super soothing.
Ok, so finally, I have my new crochet square blocker to show off; another make by Mr Weaving Heart, it’s just right for blocking all the squares I discovered hiding behind the sofa when we did the sort out. Now I have to get over my complete resistance to attaching them all together. I hate this bit, I love granny square blankets but the thought of either sewing or crocheting all those squares leave me cold. Even with the fantasy of how gorgeous it will look when complete, which usually works to force me though the toughest project, fails utterly in this situation.
