Houston we have a problem.
It’s the scarves. There’s too many.
I did a half Mary Kondo… I collected them all and dumped the big pile on the table
Quite a frightening sight to be honest, things had obviously gone completely out of hand, but with the help of a few baskets and a rubbish bag I tamed the beasts.
So now we have a basket of summer scarves in the wardrobe, a box of woven scarves, a basket for hats and gloves and a big one for all the hand knit shawls.
I haven’t been terribly ruthless. Not all of the summer scarves ‘sparked’ a huge amount of joy… but I had years of my mother’s voice in the back of my head saying ‘never throw away anything at the end of a season, wait till next year when you get stuff out again…’ . And in the context between my mother and Marie Kondo… Marie, frankly doesn’t stand a chance.
Horrible job, but glad it’s over.
Now I can plan my next knitting project… I’m sure I can squeeze another one in the basket… right?
