IKEA ideas

I’ve been poking around at IKEA, trying to decide on a better way to store my yarn/projects/knitting paraphernalia. I really like the idea of these cubbies and related clear boxes. I have enough space for this 16 cubby shelf, but could possibly go a little smaller and not take up the entire wall in the little room off our bedroom. Would it be enough? Not sure yet…

While I was at IKEA, I also found a little folding bench which would be cute on our tiny front porch. I actually liked the idea of two chairs better, but they’re out of stock right now. No matter, I didn’t buy anything yet!

Except for one clear box to try out, and…this.


If it’s flexible enough, I want to knit something silly with it. I just don’t know what, yet. I’m assuming that the laces aren’t terribly long, and I don’t want to have to try to join pieces. I’m open to your ideas; what do you think?
