Where Will All the Sweaters Go?
It finally feels like spring. The birds are chirping, the grass is sprouting, the dog’s outside finding mud to dig in and it’s time for all heavy woolen handknits to take their seasonal nap tucked safely away in the cedar chest.
Just one problem.
This is the cedar chest after I put some sweaters in it yesterday:
And these are the shawls, sweaters and scarves that still need to fit in there:
Truly, this is one of those problems that’s easy to forget while the winter knits are being worn. I certainly forgot about it this year. Not only did I forget it, I added to it. There are several new pieces in that pile.
Logical sorts like the Master Engineer can always come up with easy solutions. “It’s full. Stop knitting.”
Silly muggle. We know that’s not happening. After all, I have a stash to use up, don’t I? (A continuously augmented stash, but we won’t mention that right now.)
Actually, he was joking. But the cedar chest really is full. That chest contains much of my knitting history. It even holds a few pieces knit by my mother and grandmother, plus some worthy non-knits like my wedding dress. I can’t cast those things out into the mothridden wilderness. But what am I going to do with all this stuff, short of buying another cedar chest (and then finding a place to put it)?
Anyone else out-knit your storage capacity? What did you do about it?
