The missing skeins have been located. I found one in my stash and the other in my mother’s. Yes, this means that I had to search both stashes.
This is my stash cupboard. It is a linen closet in my upstairs hallway that holds no linen other than the cross stitch variety. It holds instead all of my cross stitch fabric, thread collections, patterns, finished projects, and WIPs. It also holds all of my craft magazines and jewelry making supplies. The blank spots represent bags that I took out to search for the two colors that I didn’t have in my regular DMC stash (the blue bag). That is everything I had to search through to find two skeins of floss. Now I get to put it all back and try to make everything fit. I will probably spend some time winding the 1000 stray floss skeins onto bobbins. When everything is put back, there isn’t a single inch of space to spare. I need to rearrange some things and see if I can’t fix that. I have a couple of stacks of new-ish magazines that need a home.
Lest it appear that I have given up knitting, I finished a linen stitch dish cloth yesterday and loved it so much that I started another one. I love these yellow and orange colors.
