Urban Reflection CAL Week 4: Border and Blocking

My New Craft Room - Part 3

It's DONE!!!!! There was only a tiny little bit that didn't fit and that's just because I have too much blue, black and pink. ;) I want to make everything now! Every pattern I have ever seen or dreamed of making! All the things! I must knit/crochet ALL THE THINGS!!!!!


Just a break down for you so that you can see better how I did this, the top left is all my cotton/cotton blends by color and next to it is all my cotton/cotton blends that is either variegated or ombre. Just below those two shelves are all of my wool and wool blends in exactly the same fashion. The top right shelf and the three shelves below it are all my acrylic variegated or ombre skeins. All the other shelves, starting with the one that is second down on the left, are all my acrylics skeins sorted by color.

I LOVE  how it all came together. The clear plastic drawer to the left  of the yarn shelves is what wouldn't fit. The stuff below is all gift giving stuff, bags, tissue paper, cards, that sort of stuff. In the desks drawers to the right is *most* of my material and notions, ribbon, thread etc. All my crochet, knitting and sewing books are stacked on the shelves there. It looks sooooo pretty in this room! I want to just sit in it and stare at it's lovely organization all day long! 

What does your yarn storage look like? I think we'll have some kind of contest here in the next little bit where you can share your pics. What do you think?

We'll chat again soon.

Be happy!

  2. Hi! Can you tell me about the shelves..this is FAB. They are not too wobbly? I am thinking not since you used them..I had some like this before for my kids and they were wobbly..Do you think I put them together wrong or maybe brand?...Wanted to check to see if there was a trick...I wanna crochet looking at your beauty LOL

    1. I suppose they are a little wobbly. It's pretty tall. They are definitely stable enough that I wouldn't worry about them coming down if something bumped them but I wouldn't leave my kids climb them. Does that help?

    2. Yes very much. Thank you :-)

  3. I really love what you've done for your storage :)
    My craft room is quite narrow, so my chests of drawers that I store my yarn in isn't really shown to advantage, especially as I've got half of my yarn stored in cardboard boxes above my wardrobes in there - but I'm going to try and take some photos to see how it looks through the viewfinder! :)

Owl Dish Scrubbie

Here is the window dressing promised in the Scrubbie Teaser Post from a couple weeks ago! How freaking adorable are these little owls???? I was so excited when my friend came to me with this idea! I approached Lorene from Cre8tion Crochet and asked her what she thought about me linking to her post and I was soooo glad that she was ok with it! Look how cute these are!!!!! 
Alright, so step one is going to be to complete the scrubbie from the previous post, found HERE. Once you have completed that you can follow along with the rest of the pattern here:
Materials  Cotton yarn in as many colors as you like. (You will want to use cotton so that it absorbs water and is more durable for repeated washings. I (5.5 mm) Hook Yarn needle Extra strips of nylon net material from previous step. You are going to stuff the owl with it.
Notes You can put a scrubbie in front, or in back or in both places. However you think it will work best! I have completed one owl with the scrubbie in the front (the orange an…

Chevron Love Afghan

Let's get ready to CHEVROOOON!!!
Woohoo!!! This pattern has been tested and is now ready for you to all enjoy! It's actually pretty simple. I think you all will be pleasantly impressed. I had so much fun making this afghan. I haven't made one in about 5 yrs. I got into a slump and between this chevron afghan and another that has me busy currently, I have come back into the world of afghans! I LOVE making them again! : D HOORAY! Also, for me, it was so fun and refreshing to be making this in boy colors. I have two girls so it isn't often that I get to play around with blues and greens and it was so so much fun!

If you are a member of pretty much any crochet group on social media I'm betting by now you have heard of or seen the new planned pooling argyle craze. To catch you up in case you have no idea what I am talking about: color pooling with yarn is what happens when you work with a variegated yarn and the colors either seem to group together or form distinguishable patterns within your finished item. I'm sure you've made a hat or and somehow the green in the variegated yarn always seems line up or something similar. Planned pooling is basically planning ahead of time to make your variegated yarn come together in a way that creates a …
