This post was great! It made me feel totally validated and justified in my own "organization skills". It seems like you know where things are. Or at least what piles you would need to systematically go through.

I have managed to give away a lot of acrylic yarn that I used to make charity blankets for. I also managed to NOT go to Stitches West and buy anything and not bring back more than I brought to a recent yarn swap at a friend's house.

This is accomplishment to me.

Your yarn looks GREAT! I want to knit right now! Love the pictures and the post. Thanks for sharing!

My yarn organization looks pretty much like yours. Some plastic bins in the den/guest room, some reusable shopping bags filled with yarn in other rooms and then the project bags floating about wherever. Oh - and there's the box of yarn in the dining room filled with yarn to be wound into balls for the log cabin blanket I started last night.


denial is a river in Egypt....and we all have this problem don't we....but it never ends...I haven't checked under the bed lately....is that where dust bunnies come from?? :) :) :)


I may be more organized but I definitely have stash envy!


I am completely disorganised when it comes to my yarn - it's all just chucked in a pile in various bags and baskets in the little alcove under the stairs. Every now and again I have a tidy out and I sort it all out beautifully into colour order but it never lasts very long and before you know it it's all in one big heap again. However, all my lovely new yarn is in two tote bags and I am determined to keep it like that! I really NEED a room for yarn (won't get it though!!)


I have every basket in my house filled with some kind of yarn or thread. There has to be some at hand where ever I am.


I *cough cough* have organization similar to yours, if not slightly more primitive!! I have some clear plastic storage, but I make great use of plastic bags (clear) and boxes...the cardboard variety!!

So, what is that GORGEOUS green yarn living in the purple Hallmark bag?!?


Looks like you have a beautiful and impressive stash! Mine is very small - if that can be called a stash! ;-)


Ha, ha, what a great post! I don't think yarn hoarding is a problem to be overcome although I have slowed down a little lately after I started realizing that I had yarn that was as old as my teenagers that I hadn't gotten around to using. We're talking nice yarn that I was so excited to buy and then got sidetrack from using.

I do like to display some of my more "fancy" yarn, and, of course, then I worry when I use it whether I'll have enough to display properly.


Can I come live in your house? : )
