I don´t have much of a stash
, but keep mine, in ziploc bags, with the patterns i´d choose for each one, in a big rubbermaid container. That way i can see exactly what i have. The only problem i´m having is with straigh needles, don´t know where to put them!!!
(i don´t use them anymore...)
ps. i´ve seen some stash from the other members that are just amazing!!!
they have rooms for it, and even use excell to keep track of their yarn!!!
