The cube spilleth

Everyone has heard the story of why I named this blog "the knitting cube". It helps me hide a lot of the stash that I have been spending my money on lately in some of the great stores in Westchester County. One of the hardest things to do was to go to Goldman's Yarns in Hartsdale to stock up knowing that they are closing their doors after 60+ years. They are finally retiring and boy do they do deserve it. I have bought enough to get through some projects for a few babies and some kitchen stuff for my mami.

The cube spilleth over ....


And what you all don't know is that I have a lot more. I know I am not the only one- come on we all are yarn addicted. Has everyone heard the stash horror story on Brenda Dayne's Cast On Podcast this week, it is hilarious.

But what about the projects on my needles. I am not officially doing the Knitting Olympics, I didn't sign up in time and I was somewhat daunted on what to complete. I had just finished knitting a hat and 70 inch scarf in three days for one of my favorite managers (and I sprained my finger) and I had started a shrug and this rag doll was the the brain.

So I have started the doll and the shrug is almost there, and a new scarf will be started tomorrow. So where does this leave me .

NO MEDALS FOR ME :-(

But I have decided to take the knitting journal that I bought last year and write down as many projects that I can remember, the yarn used and to whom I gave it to. Keep a record for my future and to see how far I have come.
So maybe I will just get an honorable mention.

Keep the pointy sticks moving.

Wow! I didn't realize that cube held so much yarn! What street do you live on again? You know. So that next time I'm in the BX I can just stop by... :-)

I now want the cube. Even showed it to my spouse as the item we should design an entire home around. He did not agree - fool! Also not in the Olympics - thought there should be a 'Special Olympics' for those knitting hurt. giggle! Best wishes for a fast thaw! Washington State - K

Cara (January One) picked up a cube at Ikea last weekend. You are at the forefront of the hot new trend in knitting storage.

You trendsetter you...
