Welcome to my Wool Stash!

I was really pleased when I realised that my local Wool Shop ('Em's' in Droitwich) was having a sale.  I paid £1.00 per ball for all this lovely yarn on Saturday morning.  Mostly it's a cotton mix which I really enjoy using in my crochet projects.
On Sunday afternoon I spent some time bringing order to the general chaos of my wool stash.  I moved it from one of the high level cupboards in the little bedroom to the space under our bed.  I also themed it by colour and wool type.  Here's a picture of all the bags lined up across the bottom of the drawer.  Somehow there's something deeply satisfying about the sight of all this work waiting for my attention!
I'm making good progress towards the completion of my latest granny square blanket.  I think I should be able to post pictures of the finished article in a couple of weeks time.  It's great to maximise our commuting time by doing a bit of crochet in the passenger seat.   Yesterday was an especially awful day and we ended up spending over 2 hours in the car.  It didn't feel anywhere near so bad when I looked at the squares I'd made!
