Where do you keep your stash? Post pictures!
Okay…this is going to be embarrassing. Some of you might remember when I did a blog post about reorganizing my stash in January 2016 and getting it out of my closet so I could see it. If not, here’s the post. Take a look at it because it doesn’t look anything like that now. At that point, I had a measly (cough, cough) 147 different types of yarn stored in my Ravelry library (with some skeins still hiding out) and I was able to store everything neatly.
I’m supposed to be on a yarn diet. I’m supposed to be knitting from my stash. This was the year to knit from my stash! Now, I’m at 249 (I was at 250; however gifted a skein…yay me!) skeins. No wonder I am feeling so overwhelmed! I think it’s time to do a reorganization again and figure out a better solution.
I think most knitters (except for my friends that are minimalists) can relate to this and I know my stash is not as large as others that I’ve seen. You see all the pretties and you buy them, but you only buy one skein…and then what do you do when you want to knit a sweater or a poncho or anything that requires more than one skein? You buy more yarn!
So, where do I keep my stash? Every little nook and cranny that I can find right now. Mostly in the corner of my office / craft room.
Here’s a close up of each of the sections. And if you’d really like to see what I’ve got…check out my Ravelry Stash.
Send help please! I need some organization 🙂 Or, maybe…just maybe…I need to stop buying yarn and knit from the stash. That is going to be my mantra for the rest of the year. I hope. I’ll try. Maybe…Oh look! Another pretty!
