Tidy mind, tidy stitches.

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.

My stash is primarily organized by weight and fiber content. When I'm starting a new project, I can look at similar yarns together to pick out the right color and texture.

I have threads, baby weight/colors, and sock weights (for a variety of projects) in an IKEA drawer unit...

Acrylic worsted and bulky (great for charity projects and amigurumi) in an under-bed storage container...

Miscellaneous yarns (great for freeform and smaller projects) in/next to a basket on a shelf...

Not as large as some stashes that I've seen, but it's a good start.

Thanks for reading!
