Most of the summer was spent getting ready to move to a much smaller home. I cleaned out a lot of excess possessions throughout that time. I also gave away and literally threw out lots of yarn that I know I won't use. My goal was to keep the best of the yarns and the projects that I'd actually complete.
The month of September brought the unpacking phase of the move. I have more than enough room for my knitting and sewing resources here in my new home. What I don't have space for is yarns and half finished projects that I don't totally love.
Here's one of the projects that I took apart.
The yarns are beautiful shades of green but the shawl that I started was totally boring to knit. I now have the yarn safely stored for a new project.
I still have too many started projects but I hope to continue to either finish them or unravel the knitting and save the yarn for a better project.
It's a very freeing experience. I believe that I've opened the door for new knitting projects by getting rid of all the projects that were lingering in a box or a closet in my old home.
