Ya gotta start em off slow. I saw a thing about how it's easier to store sheet sets in one of the pillow cases, tidier and you're never hunting for a full set.... So they'll see you pull out hte pillow case and pull out sheets...

after a couple of months, you take the odds and ends pillow cases and put yarn in them so it looks like sheet sets then put them up high under the "not full sets" deal

LHFBM - you are sneaky, I love it. My DH keep saying when I tell him I want yarn for Christmas, that the one thing I don't need is yarn. My ten boxes of yarn and overflowing drawers are driving him crazy. My have to start using them pillowcases to disguise my addition.

it works

I also remind my dh of the fact that he has a TON of computer parts/superhero things that have taken over the shelves of our basement (and what's supposed to be MY office.. it's getting redecorated after the first of the year and the first thing to go are his super hero things... sunny yellow walls and a pretty darker blue carpet. it's meant to be a sun room so it's going to be full of color since it has 5 windows over the 3 sides not attatched to the house and i have seasonal depression.. plus i need a place to put my tredmill i'll be getting). So given he has a LOT more of his "crud" he can leave mine alone.

Sounds like you'll have a great place to knit.

I'm going to plan this log cabin ...ghan into my weekly knitting. I'm going to start with my Christmas colors and work from there. I inherited a lot of red and green from a friend and need to finish that up first. I'll probably work some cotton into the project as well.

I know definitely what I'll be starting as of Jan 1st 2009 and that is my Central Park Hoddie (finally). I like to have a few projects going at the same time so I have to think a bit.

Good Luck with your destashing.

Mary

I'm just going to pull bright colors from my stash (limited as it is). I'm doing the livingroom in the same colors as my office (only difference is the woodwork in the livingroom has a reddish tint to it) so it'll go for one of the rooms....



Unless my 5 cats lay claim to it first!

Well, I've decided to start my "detashin" early.I taught my niece to knit this summer and she loves it. So I am going to go through my stash and pick out some yarn for her and add it to her Christmas bag. :o) I know it will be loved and hopefully used with her!
