I have had those sliding baskets for ever, one of those blended family items I didn't use, but didn't want to throw away. They have held everything from sports gear to My Little Pony-s. When I looked at my yarn the light bulb flashed.
It IS the same issues with EZ's baby surplice jacket. I've made two of the BSJs and I can't wait to co the surplice. Even with the model doing the monthly breast exam I still love Vogue Knitting.
It feels so nice to have the yarn and needles organized and as you said, inventoried. What I didn't mention was that I spent 2 hours on one ball of sock yarn that my 2 you DGS had tangled into a mess. He is so going to get socks made from that yarn.
