I crochet every day and am having a Marie Kondo moment, yarnwise.

Posted on Updated on

I recently began a crochet project and I am loving it. Every day I am finding time to do a few rows. Every day I love deciding which colour to crochet next. Every day I tell myself it is using up excess piles of yarn and I can look forward to searching out new ones to purchase and new projects to plan. My name is Tina and I am a yarnaholic !

My usual ‘thing’ is knitting and I dabble with sewing too. It’s so refreshing to be making something right now and enjoying every minute of it. There have been a few moments in the last few months when I haven’t had as much joy from crafting as I should have had. This week, this moment, this summer I am have a ‘Marie Kondo’ moment, yarnwise. I am sorting my yarn stash – deciding whether it ‘brings me joy’ or if I am ready to ‘let go’ and gift it to someone else (occasionally it goes back into the stash for another project, that’s allowed). I haven’t Marie Kondo’d any other areas of my life – but I almost feel I have joined the MK movement!

Who else is loving their crafting right now?

    I definitely need to do that with my stash, I KNOW there’s stuff in there that I just don’t love any more.
    What are you making? The colours look gorgeous together

    I MKd my stash a while ago, and it felt good when I was done. Crafting books as well. It can be a stressful project while it is in the works, but the results are good šŸ™‚ Your crochet project is looking great!
