I use the vaccuum sealed bags for my yarn all the time. It is a great way to save it from the cats and from getting musty in the basement. Also saves a lot of space.

That is really funny! Amazing what ends up in strange places. Destashing is always fun too because then you have room to go buy more yarn and not feel too guilty about it.

I love that story! My grandmother lived to be 96 and knit all her life. She started me on knitting when I was young so maybe that means I'll live to be a ripe old age too.

I love making scarves too - they let you try out and perfect new techniques, but also take just the right amount of time that I don't get bored - I have a short attention span!

I had the same reaction!

On the plane last night I was watching the same Harry Potter film and was eyeing up the same hat and scarf that you were. I was wondering what type of yarn it was and how much it would cost to buy!!
