We'll start with the overview
This is my basement lair, where I putter with yarn and fabric

There's more than this. I just can't dedicate the time and energy to documenting all of it. In my own defense, I'll point out that the vast majority of yarn found its way to me for free or very inexpensively. My grandmother gave me all her mohair, which she bought from a yarn store going out of business sale, circa 1970. My mom and dad found several very large boxes of yarn being thrown out in the aftermath of an estate sale. The thrift shops here have been incredible sources of cheap yarn. So, as bad as this looks, my cash outlay for yarn has not devastated my family finances. Maybe by next year I can prune it back to about 60% of the current quantity. Probably not, but that's a worthy goal.
