I'm doing some decluttering and organizing in my home. I started with the most difficult room--my bedroom. We don't have a walk-in closet, but have 3 separate small closets. (Our bedroom has 10 doors and 1 window.) Of those doors 5 are closet doors. I started with the closet that I use the least, took everything out, reorganized it and put some back in. Then I tackled the one where I store my sweaters, other kit tops, jeans, shorts and shoes. Here's what it looked like before.
I took all the hand-knit sweaters out and put them on the bed.
I count 30 here, but that doesn't count the short-sleeved ones and those knit in cotton. Those I had actually organized before I thought abut snapping some photos. There are only about a dozen of those, so that was easier.
Unfortunately this is the space I had to put them back into. The two stacks on the right are the cotton and short-sleeved sweaters.
But I managed it! They all went back in and should stay that way for a while as I am not wearing wool too much these days. I have a sweatshirt on today, but in the summer when I'm cold I wear sweatshirts, not wool sweaters.
Today I finished up the other closet and I went through my dresser drawers earlier this week.
I still may have too many sweaters, but by April I'm starting to get tired of wearing the same 23 sweaters and look for more. That's when I pull out the older ones that I don't wear early in the winter. When you wear wool from September through April you do need a good selection.
On the knitting front, I have completed two shawls and a pair of socks this summer and am starting on a sweater-vest.
