winter's here... and a question about storage

I swear the next thing I knit will not be from Quince! ;-)

I finished Agnes just before the cold weather really hit. Knit from Quince and Co.'s Puffin (colorway: gingerbread) it's a dense but comfy sweater in a simple, classic design. I should have probably knit down a size, cause this is pretty big on me, but I love wearing it like an oversized sweatshirt, sitting in my kitchen watching the snow come down!


Question for you knitters (and non-knitters, too!) How do you store and organize your finished handknits? Mine are in piles, baskets, drawers, and bins -- all over the place! As I finish more and more big projects and sweaters, I am seeking out some sensible, tidy, and pest-proof storage. Any recommendations for favorite systems, products, or just ideas, please feel free to share. Thanks!

think pink!

"...think pink and the world is rosey-red"

I am not typically one for cowls, but I loved the stitch pattern here and the opportunity to work with Quince & Co. Puffin, which I picked up on a recent trip to Maine. I knit this for a friend's birthday in November and really love it.

State Street Cowl pattern found here.
Quince & Co. Puffin found here. I chose pomegranate and I love the shade! Pink may be my new favorite... and it's got me singing this song!

happy new year!

Spent the last week of 2011 in one of my favorite places, reading a great book, taking lots of walks and wearing my finished Agnes sweater.

Hope 2012 brings you all continued peace, love, happiness, or whatever you are seeking.

Hooray for a new year!
