Stash Diving!

This evening I've been a very good girl! My stash, small as it is, was beginning to peek up from the side of the couch and out of the little 'stash' drawers that I have. Not only was it all beginning to look a real mess with carrier bags all over, I spilt coffee over it the other day! Thankfully most was saved by the carrier bags but there were a couple of fatalities!

So, I was prompted into action. I bought some stiff weaved bags on sale in the BHS kitchen section which are just gorgeous and perfect for the job! (Pics to follow) I have spent this evening sorting through and documenting my stash....Ravelry here I come.... so now I have one large bag full of stash that I have no idea what to knit with, one medium bag full of 'queued' yarn, ie, those that I already have projects in mind, and one smaller bag as my current WIP's bag. All very organised!!

I am a great fan of Sarah's blog. Not only is her writing always cheery, I just love her photos. She seems to have this knack of setting up a beautiful picture whereas I just point and click and forget to look at what I'm actually taking. With this in mind, I've set myself a mini project. I want to design my own blog template and have a picture in the title bar such as this or this blog.

If anyone out there has any handy tips on templates, please send them my way!

Oh thank you so much for the compliment! I spend my blog reading wishing my photos looked as amazing as all the ones I see so I am trying harder with mine, and I'm glad you like them :)

Acrylik's pic is fab isn't it, can't see stitchnsue as I'm at work and I guess it's on Flicker. I spent quite a while playing with the template to get it like I wanted and I'm always tweaking it!
