Storage
That looks great! If you send those books to me...you'll have even more room for yarn.

Hey I envy you!!! I have four children and a dog. I have to hide mine in a big store bag in the bottom of a chest, or I find the yarn around the kids and the dog. You have done a great job and someday mine will look (I hope!!) similar!!! Good job!

Let's see...... we've got Janet Evanovich, Sue Grafton, James Patterson, Patricia Cornwell, Robert Crais, Christopher Moore, Jodi Picoult, etc, plus some random books and a bunch of knitting novels. That help?
I've read most of those as well. I thought I recognized the Stephanie Plum books there LOL

Love the storage idea. I don't have as much yarn but I love the way you have it set up. Very Very Nice Jan.

I LOVE it! My stash is currently in a closed cabinet, a fabric basket stuffed to the brim, and a cardboard box full of yarn I got at a yard sale. That's what IN my house. I have a large plastic bin in my garage too. I LOVE your idea. It's sooo pretty, and the glass doors keep them dust free!!! And soo color coordinated too. Hmm...maybe I can get my DH to agree that we put a bookshelf in that room.

That's what I thought too, I bet it gets knit up faster than mine which is in sweater storage container under my bed! I removed all my yarn from the hobby room when my mom moved in because I got tired of the old line 'what do you need more yarn for' every time I came home with a coupla skeins of sock yarn, but someday I want to replace my open shelving with something like yours!!!!!!!!!! Where did you get it?

That is fabulous! Just like Arielluria, my yarn in also in a sweater storage bag under my bed. Kind of gets forgotten under there. Great job!
