I’m kind of a perfectionist, it’s mellowed as I’ve gotten older, but some of those deep traits are still there.

I work in my studio occasionally ..actually pretty infrequently for having a dedicated space and I really want that to change. I’m not entirely sure what the hang up is, but I’m starting with a deep clear out, some monochromatic reorganization (to lessen my visual over stimulation) and a light shift in how I use the space. Can you have too many art supplies?

One idea is to move my stash up there and have an always accessible place for my swift and winder.

The finished idea motivates me, but I really really f-ing hate the process, the mess and the overwhelm. Oh hey distraction, I made a ice cream charm! (p.s it’s not strawberry, it’s bubblegum)

And there was also realtime ice cream distraction ..they may have went to the parlor without me, but they brought me home a pint of half melted Superman!

the facts

These birdseye maple floors were trapped under orange shag carpet when we moved in.

A chubby Arctic narwhal in a sweater is a little more than half the size of a skein of English wool, if you include his tooth, he’s bigger.

That’s a bag shaped basket, full of bags. It’s funny, the baskets body has a faux knitted texture, and the bags inside are for actual real knitting.

A gift of small batch, minimal impact English wool, given to me from my friend in Nevada (who also made me the chubby Arctic narwhal).

That little English sheep looks sad.

We needed new footstools, I swear the extra yarn storage was an added bonus. I can fit 62, 100g skeins of wool inside, are you happy now little English sheep?

I store my wool with scented soap chunks, my wool smells flipping amazing.

Kiki weights as much as 81 skeins of English wool.
