Tidy mind, tidy stitches

Day Three of…………….

Today is all about how we keep our projects and yarn organized. I´m all about Ravelry.com to keep my projects organized and my queue up to date on what I really want to knit next. My queue is a bit long now and I´m sure I need to go through it and get rid of items that I´m not interested in anymore.
But I don´t use Ravelry for my yarn. I have this shelf for that. It´s two 9 cuby storage shelves stacked on top of one another. It´s been the best storage for my yarn and I see everything and am able to choose from my stash easily. My books are right there to grab when I need them and then at the bottom I have canvas drawers for those half skeins and left overs and tools.
Then on the little table next to my knitting couch I have that standing project tote which I bought at Garden Ridge for $6 if I remember correctly and it keeps most of my works in progress so that I can grab what ever I am working on quickly.
When I have several small projects I get gallon size ziplock bags and use them to keep everything I need in one place for each project.

  1. Love the visual!! Is the bookcase from Ikea? If not I have seen a similar one there and have often thought it would be a great way to tame my stash. Although, then my husband would see it all in one place and that might not be a good thing…lol

    Love your blog!!

  2. How funny!
    I was thinking about going diving into my stash today (which is a total mess) and try to organize it a little bit better. I really need to know what I have (cause I buy a lot!) Unfortunetely we don't have room for a shelf… so everything must go in boxes.
