Holy moly...you have a lot of knitting books! It looks great though! I my stuff half organized now. Need to get back to that. I don't use the hanging thing anymore and the books are not knitting related. Just my paperbacks.

Both of you have great storage!

On the floor to my left, at the moment, are all my knitting and crochet books (well, most of them) waiting to be put on my library page on Ravelry. Actually had two copies of the book 2-at-a-time-socks. Posted the second one on PBS, so I can get a credit for it; but did I know? No . . . had a bunch of stuff that was hidden.

My room is crammed full of books, sewing, yarn . . . all the neccesities of life.

*drool*
*points to self* We have an organizational freak over here

I love how the random books on the ends are the perfect size to work as bookends.My reference section was that nice before my bf took the book holding it all together T_T

I really need to make the trip down to Ikea(rofl, it's a block away) to find some baskets to put up on my shelf and hold my LPs.I'm getting Toots & the Maytals 54-46 and I really don't want that thing just laying around....with my cat....who has claws....I almost cried when I found Jefferson Airplane's Surrealistic Pillow at the thrift store for 99 cents.I don't know how I'd react to that getting scratched O_O

Ahh...I can see them now all organized into "classical/metal", "punk/reggae" and "just plain weird" categories.

I just remembered...one thing I did recently was to get a 2 drawer file cabinet. It's wood and DH painted it to match the Ikea shelves. Now all my loose patterns are organized!

I really like those folding shelves you got, Dollyce. That was a great idea. They have tall ones as well if you ever want to add more space.

WOW! Right now I am going through my book cases and putting books I've got on my Kindle into boxes for the local library. I don't dare put up a picture of my desk right now. The stacks of books, magazines, and yarn are mind boggling from just a physics standpoint.

People like you make me sick. You do realize I'm kidding don't you? Wonderful idea and a good job of it, but this level of organization just isn't going to happen in my life.
