|...I'm still here, and still knitting.|
My week on call ended last Saturday, and on Sunday my parents arrived for a week long visit. I'm back on call on Saturday, and I can't wait. Time spent with my mother is very tiring.
Speaking of searching, a knitblogger (whose name/blog I am blanking on - she's a medical student) tagged me for the "7 random things about you" meme a while back. I thought I'd adjust it a bit to:
"7 places that you can find yarn in my house" (this doesn't count the yarn I keep in my office at work)
The bins, of course.
The basket (on top as well as inside)
The cheese box
The stainless steel picnic basket (at least that's what the thing looks like. For all I know, it could be a lobster trap - we picked it up at a garage sale)
And 2 somewhat less traditional storage spots (because everyone has cheeseboxes and picnic basket/lobster trap hybrids sitting around their living room, right?):
Check out these handsome souvenir mugs I picked up on the cruise:
Finally - meet our chest freezer.
We don't really need it for food right now.
I like to think that this gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "Cool Wool".
Is it any wonder that I couldn't find the rest of the yarn to knit the Sideways Cardigan?
I'm not going to tag anyone for this meme.
Instead, I'll run a contest; I'm calling it the "You put yarn WHERE?!? Contest".
What's the weirdest place that you've stored yarn in? Post about it on your blog, and leave a link to the post in the comments. On July 1st, I'll select 2 winners - one at random, and one that the cats deem most creative/weird. If you link to this post, your name will be entered twice in the random draw. Posting a photo of the yarn in the hiding place also gets you a bonus entry.
If you are blogless, leave an email address in your comment - or take this opportunity to enter the wonderful world of blogging!
I can be bribed...
