Where are they now?

Tidy mind, tidy stitches

How do you keep your yarn wrangling organised?

I keep my yarn stash in the bedroom, stacked up in three towers of Really Useful Boxes (84 litre size) guarded by Fearsome Miss Flossie. There's more yarn under the bed, this time in 50 litre boxes. Each box contains similar types of yarn (sock, lace etc) and each has its own Excel spreadsheet on the computer (I know, I know - anal). This system works really well, apart from the obvious flaw when the box you want to get into is located in the tower below a sleeping cat.


Needles, hooks and boxes of other knitting/crocheting essentials live on a cheapo kitchen trolley with wheels so I can move it close to where I'm sitting.


Current knitting/crochet projects lurk in the living room. Some are in an old china washing bowl (strategically placed to deter FMF from sleeping right in the middle of the single-bed-disguised-as-a-sofa)


and some are, er, just strewn across the table. These are projects that need finishing soon and can't be ignored any longer.


Books I use often, beads and buttons are housed on shelves over my computer; large books and printed-out patterns in files are in my bedroom bookcases.

Tour over, folks :o)



Jan - I want to be you when I grow up. xxx

Those are massive tub-fulls of yarn!

Great idea to have a moveable trolley!

Wow you are scary organized.

Ooh - I like the button storage - that's new since I last visited!

(And yes, she's scarily organised, folks; but in a non-frightening way...)

I love it - so much fun to be able to find what you need when you need it. Now if I could only keep my room tidy - I get carried away & make messes!
