...And the Clearout Begins!

Well, okay, so it's a little early for Spring Cleaning, but I figure it's about time for my yarn collection to have a little "detox". In other words, it's time to get rid of all the crap lying around that I haven't ever used! I still find myself wanting to go out and buy new wool, but I literally have NO space in my house for more yarn...

So, a detox it is.

I have spent rather a long time trying to figure out how on EARTH I was going to manage to get rid of all my yarn, given that it's all different gauges, colours, lengths...GRR. I have finally settled on making a patchwork granny square quilt, with monochrome granny squares in all different colours. I will make each square as big as I can/need to with the amount of whatever yarn I have, and then work on stitching them together. No pics yet, as I haven't started, but if y'all have any suggestions as to where I can get some interesting granny square motifs, lemme know. I'd like to NOT do them all exactly the same!

Wish me luck, and keep your fingers crossed it doesn't look like complete crap.
