How do you keep your yarn wrangling organised?
I got this bright idea (a dorm-dweller's mentality? from moving several times? I dunno.) that the best yarn storage system would consist of temporary items that could be 1} easily moved and b} very quickly converted to another purpose should the need arise.
Behold: the stash!
in the spare room, using hanging shoe organizers, sweater shelves, etc.
|small planned projects and acrylic leftovers|
|large planned projects, unplanned stash, and wool leftovers|
|"in process" bucket|
Behold: the needles!
contained in large resealable baggies, one each for most sizes
|needles in a haystack made of needles|
Behold: (most of) the books!
in my cubicle at work; don't you judge me.
|just some of the many tomes|
Behold: the... patterns? Where'd they go? I know I have a bunch of printed-out and copied... oh, there they are!
|the box is marked "knitting needles" -- it lies.|
This system needs improvement also, possibly a binder with tabs
