Still Life

I've noticed an infestation around here lately. I'm not quite sure how it began, but the past few weeks have been witness to some pretty strange stash behaviour chez Dear. See.... in blatant disregard of the rules, the yarn has been congregating outside the designated stash areas. For instance:

This basket of various sock yarns, casually perched atop the hutch in the dining room.

This huge yarn bait-ball at the foot of the bookcase in my room. Safety in numbers?

And what am I supposed to make of this lonely ball of Noro Silk Garden, caught in flagrante delite on the bathroom counter?

Something has to be done, people... I've got guests coming next week, I can't have yarn roaming about as though it has free range over the entire house!

Our trip to Paris is coming along nicely. I've done some research and have settled on what I'm going to try to see while Phil is working (snicker...), and I'm beginning to suspect I'll need to go back! There's no way I'm going to get everything done in 5 days. I've also booked us a cruise along the Seine on the bâteau mouche, for our anniversary. I'm really looking forward to that one :)

All right people, I'm off to watch The Lord of the Rings with Phil and knit on my scarf.

Happy Knitting Everyone!

What a feel-good post. I laughed at the free range yarn (the bait ball. HA. Flagrante delite. HA.)

I gently envied your travel plans (your hotel will have WIFI, right?)

I applaud your progress on the scarf. It really is lovely.

You have to put the boy sock yarn and the girl sock yarn in Separate Baskets!!


What a pity you live so far away... if I was closer, I'd be happy to help your stash troubles by robbing your house while you're in Paris. Ü

While giggling at your misbehaving yarn, I couldn't help myself thinking, mmmm that brown sock yarn in the basket is nice...
Poor Phil, having to work in Paris while you get some brothers & sisters for the yarn pile.

I am in the process of thinking about stash organizing. It lays there mocking me in its messiness. I feel your pain.

I need to organize my stash further. I'm still not done uploading.

Can't wait to hear about Paris!
