I’ve been faithfully taking pictures and posting yarn to my stash on Ravelry, so I know what I have to work with when selecting a project. Due to holiday sales, plus already acquired yarn and the Yarnbox Sock Club, I now have 147 different skeins of yarn stashed. I think it’s time to start digging into that yarn! The problem I had is that it was all hidden away in my closet and kind of unorganized. I’ve been looking at different storage options and think I’ve hit on something that will inspire me and let me see what I have. I still want to cake all of the yarns. This will allow me to get started on a project pretty quickly. I think it will also create more space. Here’s the before (you can click each image to make it larger):
I had to go to Michael’s last week to get some pipe cleaners to clean out the weeps (drainage system that allows water to flow through) on my windows. While there, I noticed they were having a 50% off sale on baskets. What a perfect idea to help store some yarn! I bought these and a cute box to store my DPNs in!
I also went on Amazon to see if I could find something that would fit in my office / craft room. Half the room is dedicated to my virtual work office, home computer, printer and bookshelves. The other half is dedicated to crafting! I found a Seville shoe rack system that I bought two of to stack together. While my husband was at his work dinner, I put the new shelves together and started moving stuff around. Here are the results!
What does your crafting area look like? How do you store your yarn? I think I’m going to be happy with what I’ve done and see lots of creating happening!
Until next time, Happy Knitting!
