My stash comes from an overwhelming urge to be
My house has rooms and closets, a storage shed, a garage... and a lot of yarn. With the help of Ravelry, I have been diligent, some would say obsessive, about noting where I keep each acquisition, and with a click, I can peruse my stash in photos or sorted into many lists. Thank you, RAVELRY!
Even with their help, I found that after my last purchase(s), it was getting out of hand. I was looking for new places, and many of those places weren't exactly "out of sight".
First I tried the closet:
|#1 stacking cubes|
And more of the closet... and then added a bag in the closet
|#2 Magazines and containers|
|#3 A big bag|
Then drawers were enlisted, under the bed, and one in the file:
|#4 In progress projects and yarn|
|#5 Top drawer of the music file|
The obvious place would be to display them as art in my living room:
|#6 Entertainment Center|
|#7 Baskets (in living room)|
|#8 Baskets and pretzel jars on the quilt rack!|
And then, then,... where is this going to live?
|#9 On the guest bed|
So I bought a few more places to organize the closet, labeled drawers, and was able to eliminate... not so much. (#'s 3, 8 and 9 are gone, plus some items have shifted from the other hiding places.)
I call it a success! (Ahem... unfortunately that closet was FULL before I started this... A trip to the shed is imminent.)
