Day 12: Where do you keep your stash? Post pictures!
Well. You’re not going to get stash storage pictures, but don’t be too disappointed–while most of my stash is fairly well organized, the way it’s stored is not pretty. I have it sorted by yarn weight and stored in large plastic tubs, which are split between our walk-in closet, our “craft room”* and a storage room at my mil’s house.
I had it handily under control, stored neatly in our basement, and then two things happened. First, we decided to clear out our basement so that we could rent it out (hasn’t happened yet, but it’s coming). Second, I started getting carloads of yarn from my freecycle benefactor. So, it all had to come out of the basement and it expanded in volume all at once. I gave tons and tons of it away, but there’s still a lot left that I haven’t been able to organize properly yet. I have plans, though, don’t you worry!
Here are some projects I’ve been working on with the freecycle yarn so far:
I think that’s pretty good progress!
I have a small bin that I keep in our family room that has yarn in it that I’m reasonably sure I’m going to use soon. Plus, I have a few (ahem) project bags here and there with WIPs, yarns for upcoming projects and notions.
And that’s pretty much the long and short of it. Do you have a stash? How do you organize it? Where do you store it?
*Said craft room is not quite a reality yet. It’s sort of a jumble of a lot of stuff that needs to be organized and put away…somewhere.
