    Yarn Organization Nirvana – How I turned my excessive yarn stash into amazing and practical art.

    My name is Christina, and I have a problem. I have way too much yarn and way to few places to store it. My husband and I have a small two bedroom house. Our second bedroom, which we lovingly refer to as the “Room of Requirement” serves as a home office, storage room, bunny room, and studio. As you can imagine, it gets cluttered very easily. Yeah.

More importantly than our team affiliation, though, is Fantasy Football. We’re founding members of our league, and I’ve managed to lose in the championship for three years running now.
