Didn't take long at all to recover this fabulous wire from inside those cables. It was simply a matter of splitting the cable open at one end, then pulling the wires in one direction and the plastic cable in the other. Resulting in a basket full of multi-coloured delight.
A short while later and the wire was coiled into easily managed rolls. Because much as I loved the aesthetics of that basket... that funky random method of storage was only going to end in disaster, and probably tears!
I have absolutely no plans for this wire. But one day inspiration will strike, and when it does... I am ready for it. As it turns out there was not as much yield as I was expecting. Perhaps I will start one of those ongoing projects... like maybe a toy basket or a laundry hamper... and I can just add to it as I collect more wire.
Hmmm... the mind boggles
