wfmw - yarn stash

It happens to be Wednesday and I happen to have a tip so I thought I'd jump in the fray here. Don't forget to check out Rocks In My Dryer for more great tips.

I recently reorganized my yarn stash. My biggest problem is that I have a lot of yarn and sometimes forget what I want to do with it or forget where I put it. While I still have boxes in the closet I have also decided to reorganize by taking projects and their pattern and putting them into bags and hanging those bags on hangers in the closet. This way when I am looking for a new project or want to work on a project I started and stopped I can go through the bags. Makes the closet neater, keeps the projects neatly organized and definitely works for me.

That's funny. I do the same and it really works.

I have so much yarn it's not even funny.

I recently put a bunch in those project bags, too, but I didn't think to put the pattern in. That's a good idea.

Other than that, I've organized it by weight (worsted, sport, etc.) in those plastic drawer things that you can see into. And I've tried to organize a bit by colour, too.

I always think the yarn is so pretty it's too bad you can't just decorate with it...

Have a good day!

Have you signed up for Ravelry? They have all sorts of organizational stuff for your stash and your projects. I'd be more descriptive, but I just signed up myself, so I haven't checked it all out yet! Everything I've heard from more experienced users makes it sound like the best thing since sliced bread, though.
