Yarn caddy/tote
What does everyone keep their yarn in? I usually just buy yarn as I need it since our space is so limited, so normally I keep mine in plastic grocery bags, but I have about 10 skeins, and 9 of them are very thick and hard to find room for, so, what does everyone use and where did you get it?! :thinking:

I have this one from Target. This is a set of two so it's more expensive. I only got one and it was about $25 I think..not postive, it might have been less. My stepmom also got me a rolling tote from Joanns.

I have two bags I keep my yarn and supplies in. One is on wheels, lots of space, some nice storage pockets. Got it online at Joann.com The only thing I don't like is it doesn't roll well except very slowly on a very even surface.
The other is a nice shoulder strap bag I got at A C Moores. I like it much better. Plenty of space, nice pocets, and 6 spaces for yarn-in-use with holes at the top for it to feed out of.
Sorry my descriptions aren't too good.

I have a large Rubbermaid container that holds my stash. WIPs are in various knitting bags scattered around the house

I recently moved to a new place and I am so excited because I have a spare room. My mother likes to call it the guest room. I call it the yarn room!

But we lived in a fairly small place before and bought a folding table to be used as a craft/activity desk. I put a nice long table cloth on it, and then undernearth I stored all my yarn in plastic bins. The bins mentioned in this thread from target would be perfect under a table.

But I also have a small bag that I keep whatever is my current project in for mobility sake.

my yarn stash is kept in a 18-gallon rubbermaid storage tub. I put batting and fabric ofer the lid so when it's closed it's a comfy ottoman. I keep my WIP's (and yarn for them) and my needles and tools/notions in a rolling yarn tote that my best friend gave me for Christmas. (there's a pic of it on my blog, scroll down to my 'Yay! Christmas is over' post, link to my blog in my sig)

Since others are saying where they keep their WIP I will say I keep mine in a pile on the coffee table!

Yeah well, the only reason my stuff is hidden away is because I have so many unfished projects, they wouldn't fit on the coffee table! My New Year's Knitting resolution was to finish all my unfinished projects before I start a new one!

I wish I could do that. But I can't, because if I did, my kids would pull the needles out of my projects and start sword fighting with them...
