Craft Room Organization: Phase II

I couldn’t stand it any longer: I spent Sunday afternoon sorting my yarn stash so that it was all together by weight! Thank goodness for Ravelry, too. I pulled up my stash and filtered it one weight at a time so I didn’t miss any yarns, and there were several where I looked at the name and it meant absolutely nothing, but hey, I’d uploaded a photo of the skein! I got to remind myself how much gorgeous yarn I have, I got to pull out a few skeins of cheapo acrylic I’ll never use, and it looks much better than before!IMG_1271Last step is waiting for the husband to build the diagonal dividers for the shelves, but I can be patient on that…I think!

    • Thanks, it felt good! I do indeed love my craft room. It makes up for the fact that my husband took over the garage for his workshop and I have to park my car in the driveway!

    • Thanks! My lack of willpower is definitely on display. It didn’t occur to me until after I posted it that I was actually sharing the size of my stash! It’s kind of a personal thing, you know? πŸ˜‰

      • πŸ™‚ I love stash pictures! I don’t see a lack of control, I see infinite creative possibilities! The yarn is your canvas and paint. Having options is key to maximizing creativity! πŸ™‚

      • Wouldn’t it be fun to have stash-visiting parties? Like, knitters could come over and say, “Hey, show me the cool stuff in your stash!” and we could all pet it and stuff. (And probably try to steal a skein here or there. Hm. Maybe not a good idea after all.)

  1. Love it. My hubby has been helping me reorganize my craft supplies too. Least year the top 2/3 of my closet got sorted into totes. This year it will be the bottom half & misc storage behind our craft room door. Love the animal skull.
