Cleaning up and organizing

Is it a bad sign when you spend your time organizing your yarn instead of cleaning up your house? This place could use some attention, but instead I figured out how much yarn I have and some projects for each one. There’s still a ton that I have nothing attached to, don’t ask me why! I think I just have to figure out what patterns I have and what yarns match up in quantity and gauge. I get so disappointed when I loop up a pattern with a yarn in mind and I’m totally off. This requires a lot more organization, but I am afraid that I won’t be able to even walk around my house soon. It’s getting that bad.

I did decide to get rid of the yarns that are either leftovers or I just plain don’t want. If anyone wants them, then let me know and I’ll give them to you. If not I guess I’ll donate them somewhere. Where exactly do you donate yarn? I’m picturing a shelter full of poor people with balls of yarns, some posh some not. Are homeless people yarn snobs? ok I got sidetracked there. Anyway let me see what I have:

Lion Brand Landscapes
Brown Sheep Bulky
Lion Brand Glitterspun
Sugar n Cream

I may throw in some GGH Aspen, GGH Goa, and I havent decided on the Tahki Cotton Classic yet. I also have some leftover Blue Sky Alpaca that I have no idea why I would save. If you are into that magic ball knitting this would perfect for you (I think). Like I said let me know if anyone wants leftover stuff.

What do the rest of you do with your leftover yarn?

    Yahaira, how much/what color of the Landscapes and Brown Sheep do you have?As for donating, do a craftster search on “donate yarn” and you’ll come up with some options. Also, one of the Y.A.R.N. members gave her stuff away on Freecycle (basically, they’re like local classifieds, but it’s of people giving away stuff)
