Memorial Day weekend...

First, I finally made sense of the not-all-that-helpful set of instructions I found online for doing two socks at a time on two circulars.

Two socks on two circs

I needed the two-at-once option because this is a large pair of mostly plain knee-high black kilt hose. One at a time? No way, not if I actually want to finish them. They're going with me to Montana, and between the flights and layovers and time in the car and time sitting around at J's house, I'm hoping for some significant progress on them.

Also, after almost 2 years, it was time to upgrade my stash storage from the wire cubes...

Storing the stash

I was tired of having to go digging through the wire cubes every time I was looking for something. The shelves on these are smaller, so nothing will get buried behind 5 other bags. It's more-or-less organized by weight. I'm loving how manageable and reasonably-sized it looks. :)

When I do two at once on two circs.. I just start them normal after a few rows, I start the second until the same place, and then transfer them to the circs. Otherwise I go nuts.

I recent upgraded my stash storage from Ikea toy hangers to cubby shelves that I think were designed for shoes.

Good Luck with the Kilt Hose.

Wow - I'm very impressed at how organized your stash is!! I jut went through mine and weeded out a ton! I still don't have it organized much beyond sock yarn and not sock yarn....
