Day 3 – Tidy Mind, Tidy Stitches 2KCBWDAY3

How do you keep your yarn wrangling organised? It seems like an easy to answer question at first, but in fact organisation exists on many levels. Maybe you are truly not organised at all, in which case I am personally daring you to try and photograph your stash in whatever locations you can find the individual skeins. However, if you are organised, blog about an aspect of that organisation process, whether that be a particularly neat and tidy knitting bag, a decorative display of your crochet hooks, your organised stash or your project and stash pages on Ravelry. 2KCBWDAY3
Today for Knitting & Crochet week we are blogging about our yarn stash, a while back I packed everything yarn related into my cupboards in my yarn room. I was so tired of going to look for a particular skein and not being able to find it. So the first two photos show my wool room that I have blogged before but the photos underneath show the fibre. Now, fibre is not easy to pack NEATLY away… no not at all! So there it stands on the other side of my yarn room in large plastic packets.
I have seen these wonderful containers on quite a few blogs that I could just pop this fibre into and this would neaten up things quite a bit I would say? Yes?
So without firther ado, page down and just see the bags of fibre all over the place… I know… I know I need to spin it up and get some order going in this room:)

Yarn, Merino / Silk blend, Angora ….. live in this pile…

More Merino, Alpaca and Angora fibre live over here…

This is cotton fibre, Nef sock yarn (BLISS!! Yes!! so incredibly soft) and sock yarn …

Now there is also cupboard space in this here room of mine, lots of Alpaca and Cashmere down there with just a little Organic South African Handspun Merino too… Thank goondess this space has doors that close!

Now if you walk over to the other side of the room with me, there is rainbow cotton dk, felting fibre and plenty of luxury rovings to spin up here… (see closing doors too, phew…)


Lastly, this is what is behind the door, superwash, merino and cashmere:)
Thanks so much for walking through my yarn room with me:)

The Wool and Yarn Room

This is my wool and yarn room… I have been trying to organise this space somewhat and I thought I would share it here…
The glass door cupboards used to be in our lounge, but when we repainted we decided we preferred the room without them and so into the wool room they went. I love them here because of the glass, the yarn is more visable and I can quickly see what I am looking for. (They are kind of full though… so I need to find more space soon!) BUT I have decided to start knitting up my stash…

This cupboard on the left contains some of my rovings, dyes, and of course yarn. In the cupboards below, I have large bags of Alpaca roving etc…

Ok, I had to take a photo of my drum carder… time to make some batts…



Cupboard on the right… more yarn… I know so many plastic bags… whenever I buy yarn and rovings they always arrive in the post in these plastic bags, I repurpose the bags and use them to store my wool and rovings, it keeps my yarn safe from moths etc… and I use the bags over and over…  and when I no longer need them, I will once again repurpose them and crochet or recycle them into shopping bags etc… I also put soap blocks, and lavender into my cupboards to let the little insects think twice about setting up home here:) I believe you can also use cedar blocks as well.



I am going to knit a bath mat with this beautiful two ply organic cotton from here.
Wishing you all an inspired week…
