Organization for the Knitter
This weekend, I worked on getting my small stash of yarn and knitting supplies organized. Although I don't think I've accounted for all my straight needles, I've set up a knitting needle inventory spreadsheet to keep track of what I have so that I don't end up purchasing duplicates. (So far, the only duplicates I have were purchased on purpose - i.e. the 2.25 mm DPN's).
If you'd like your own knitting needle inventory, here's a .pdf that you can print and fill out. Leave me a comment if you'd rather have the Excel spreadsheet file and I'll email it to you.
I also worked on my existing "stash" spreadsheet (<---you can click this link to download a blank Excel spreadsheet file):
Both of these spreadsheets will also be on my Palm TREO so that I can carry them with me. Otherwise, what good would these be?
I realized that I do a lot of heavy cleaning, organizing and decluttering when I am starting to launch something new. Right now, it's in the "under consideration" phase so I'm not ready to talk about it.
Some of you might already know that I used to design and sell rubber stamps and I've decided not to market them any longer. Drop me a line if you'd like to get a box of unmounted rubber stamps (mine and others that I've purchased - some already used) for the cost of Priority Mail postage (approx $9 USD). Keep in mind that these rubber stamps are not wood-mounted. You'll be receiving several duplicates of unused stamps that you can either keep, give away or sell on eBay. If you're interested, act quickly by sending me a comment on this blog entry. (pending transaction - thank you Cheryl G).
I'll also be posting later this week some of the stash yarn I'm selling.
