Organized my stash!
Hey everyone! I've been doing a lot of stash-busting lately, and I love being surrounded by my beautiful yarns lol So today I went through EVERYTHING and organized all my yarn and little gadgets - it made me so happy! So here are the results:

My happy little dorm corner!

Great job! Feels good doesn't it? I love organizing my stash ... then going back through it when looking for something. I love finding balls or skeins I had forgotten about ... it's like Christmas all over again! LOL

OK, I know this was just an excuse to touch your yarn- I don't have much but "organize" mine over and over.

Just kidding! It really looks nice and easy to find what you need!

What is that gorgeous purple/gray/blue yarn in the basket on the windowsill?
OTN: - Tree of Life afghan, socks, afghan for Dad, Tura Maeve baby dress, alpaca Winter Mountains scarf, Frida poncho

Recently FO- Quinn cabled bag, Evangeline fingerless gloves (2 pairs), Topknot baby hats, pompom & earflap hats, 8 pairs of socks, Baby Folkwear Caftan, Debbie Bliss Baby Shawl (blanket)

I'm SimplyRenee on Ravelry- feel free to add me as a friend & I will do the same!

Well done Rachel! And very inspiring... I feel a stash and project tidying session coming on over the weekend also...

In deference to my DH's sanity (what's left of it...), my wool stash is kept upstairs. However, with 4 projects OTN at the moment, I cannot bring myself to stash my projects upstairs because I might feel the need to attack one and that means going all the way upstairs to fetch it, and then knowing me - getting sidetracked on the way there or back, and then no knitting being done!

So, down the side of the sofa is looking quite messy at the moment!

Lol... how about having an Organisation KAL?!

OK, yes, i know, it wasn't THAT funny!

Having just sent off three boxes a few weeks ago, the amount I have fits into one medium sized basket. What a great feeling!

Rachel, can you come and organize my crafting area? That I can't seem to get to, too much junk. And you know what Renee said about just 'organizing' so that you can touch it? I agree! I do the same thing.
