ORGANIZE YOUR STASH
Calling All Knitters!
Let's get organized. I did and I feel so much better!!!
My good friend, horve1 organized her stash a short time ago and after I talked with her I got the bug, had to organize my stash. So, I did!
Yesterday I went to my local Big Lots and got 3 more 35qt boxes (I already had 4 that were very, very, very full of yarn) so that I could organize....it FEELS SO GOOD I discovered that I had more oF this and that yarn, I feel like I've been yarn shopping after finding these yarns that I had forgotten about

My books remain in the same place, i need to organize them a bit. My Woolease yarns remain in the same place...in the drawer of the bedroom entertainment center, but all other yarns are in their homes under the bed.

Ahhhh, stash organization, if feels so good....DO IT, you'll see

SHOW ME YOUR STASH!!!!! FLASH YOUR STASH

WE ALL WANNA SEE

Good looking goodies, Rebecca!

I flashed my stash in my blog the other day, pre-organization.

Holy Cow!!! That's a lot of yarn. All of mine fits into a zippered pouch that my king size comforter came it. Wish I had the means to buy some of the really nice yarn. I'm jealous.

Okay, you can't even compare my little bitty stash to Ing a Ling and many, many others around here I would say mine's about normal, right?! After seeing Ingrid's I've decided that I need to do some shopping

I must say, I feel much better having organized the stash, but I'm not too pleased with the look of my bedroom now, we are smack dab in the middle of rearranging it! It will remain in it's current state until tomorrow, when I hope I can find some new bedside tables!
