Who needs directions?

15 Jan

I decided to reorganize my yarn stash over Winter Break.

You might be thinking, Big whoop! She moved around some yarn.  What you might not understand is that knitting, like reading, can be aspirational. I have patterns and yarns I’ve never knit, just as I have books sitting around that I have yet to read.

This reorganization was serious and required new furniture. So, naturally, I turned to IKEA. Knowing the limitations of my strength and my desire to stay home, I ordered the perfect shelving unit – an eight square Kallax . You might have seen it before. Heck, you might even have one.

When it arrived, I pulled everything out, sorted them by shape and function and set the instruction booklet in a safe place. I assembled the exterior frame and stood back to admire my work. That’s when I realized I should have looked at the instruction book.

With the frame assembled, there was no way to insert the shelves. My heart sank and I went to fetch the instruction book. I disassembled the frame and started on page one.

It all worked out in the end, but I hope I have learned from this mistake. Whether I do or not, I now have a nicely organized yarn stash.
