7 Ways You can Organize Your Stash!
There’s no doubt how much us knitters and crafters love our yarn! However, we do seem to have drastically different methods when it comes to storing our prized fibres! Whether you’re a yarn hoarder or prefer a neat and tidy collection, here are 7 ways you can organize your stash!
Neat and Tidy
Some people have a neat and tidy system to organize their stash! Whether it’s in a cupboard, labeled in boxes or on shelves – an organized stash is a thing of beauty and definitely worth showing off!
Ever get that feeling that you should look into that one drawer/cupboard/room that you always throw your yarn into? The cave storing system is definitely a common one for knitters. Even though it’s not the prettiest, at least you’re sure your yarn is safe and sound (somewhere)!
Pet Owner Special
Pet owners have their own set of challenges to deal with! We think our feline housemates love our yarn as much as we do! We advise either investing in paw proof storage or just surrender to your fluffy apprentice!
Small and Simple
Small. Simple. And a great conversation starter! You might not go large with your stash, but your yarn collection certainly gets people talking! Perfect for knitters who prefer to knit-as-you-go, storing just enough for your next project means you are never inundated with unnecessary balls! And as your yarn doesn’t take up too much space (and looks oh so pretty!), you can easily display in your bedroom or living space as a decorative feature!
The dream! Your own local yarn store. Let’s just say, resisting a good yarn sale is not your forte. Of course, a well organized stash needs 10 different shades of blue! Whether it’s wool, cotton or acrylic, you have it all!
The Leftover Collection
Waste not, want not! The ‘Leftover Collection’ consists of treasured yarn scraps from earlier projects! After all, there’s no point throwing away good yarn with so many fabulous patterns to choose from!
Stash, What Stash?
New yarn, new project! You might be one of those rare knitters who prefer not to stash at all! Equipped with resourcefulness and excellent planning skills, your nimble knitting abilities means you’ve always got the perfect amount for your current project. And if there ever should be small amounts left you immediately start a scrap blanket, which is both efficient and pretty.
