What to do when your yarn takes over the lounge

Well, that's the question I pondered last week as I looked down the side of my chair and saw LOTS of woolly goodness. My husband was getting slightly alarmed at the mess (and probably the amount of yarn I seem to have acquired) so I thought I ought to do something about storage. Most of it is yarn in use, or yarn have just finished with so it's kind of separate from the main yarn box (I'm not painting my yarn stash hoarding habits in a good light here am I?). A quick browse on Pinterest and  found it, the perfect yarn box. I delved in my fabric stash (fairly large, but not in a room take over kind of way)  and whizzed up this little beauty. It matches my project bag too - Hurrah for IKEA Rosali fabric and it's yummy floral cheapness!

The tutorial I used to make it can be found here. My box is 10 inches square, it's so easy and obviously I need to make another one judging by the picture!

In hooky news I have been making a couple of Owl hats for customers, this is one of my favourites. I love the sleepy eyed look and loooong beak!

And I finally finished Alice's hummingbird longies, they look lovely knitted up and she wore them to a party last week (pre-lanolising) so they've already been out in public.

I'm also part way through a Mystery knit-a-long on Ravelry. It's being done through this group and s by designer Elena Nodel. She has designed some beautiful things, I particularly love Wild Vanilla. I think one of those will be perfect for Miss Alice in the spring! Here's a picture of the MKAL so far after clue 3!
