Tidy mind, tidy stitches – 2KCBWDAY3

Day Three: 30th March. Tidy mind, tidy stitches.
How do you keep your yarn wrangling organised? It seems like an easy to answer question at first, but in fact organisation exists on many levels. Maybe you are truly not organised at all, in which case I am personally daring you to try and photograph your stash in whatever locations you can find the individual skeins. However, if you are organised, blog about an aspect of that organisation process, whether that be a particularly neat and tidy knitting bag, a decorative display of your crochet hooks, your organised stash or your project and stash pages on Ravelry.

Tips: Many people use their blogs partly as an organisational tool – logging and cataloguing projects and newly attained skills, projects and modifications. Did you bare this in mind when you began blogging?

There ought to be a sign on my house that says “Yarn lives here”, or “Beware the String”.

I actually meant well.  I have a craft room, but it’s full of storage at the moment.  Eventually it will be a craft room in the true sense.  So that I’d have some room to move things around, I put my “stored yarn” into the basement understair storage.

Of course, that doesn’t include any incidental yarn that might have somehow managed to go on display… (here in a display bowl in the kitchen)

Or my computer desk (which, sadly is very messy and has gone through a half-cleanup in anticipation of moving things to the craft room.  Notice the swift and ball winder?  Essentials!)

And then there’s the yarn-in-progress.

Personally, for me, I’d say that’s pretty organized.
