Viewer Question from Celestya22

I would love to hear (or even better, see) your yarn/craft stash storage solutions.

I have a dream of putting together a giant teddy bear made from squares knitted by all the wonderful people I’ve met on Ravelry. If you could make a giant item made up of pieces knit by all your friends, what would you make?

About Leslie

Leslie is obsessed with knitting, and when possible, perfection in her knitting. All stripey socks must match exactly and all lace must be blocked severely. She has major love for all of her viewers/readers and hopes to keep blogging and podcasting for years to come.
