2KCBWDay3 - Tidy Mind, Tidy Stitches, Or So You'd Think

Let me premise this post by saying that I love my yarn.  I treasure it, care for it, and if there's a fire it's got top billing with the family photos and out of print books.

I like to think I keep my yarn organized, but like many of my possessions, it is contingent on where I currently live and what kind of furniture I have there.  I move a lot, so the yarn moves around, but I tend to keep at least some by my bed with my current small projects.

The real stash is stored in the drawers of this tower, which will sadly be converted back into a dresser when I move after this semester.

I also have a few bags that hold large in-progress items or the occasional sweater's worth of wool.

But there are always a few run-away skeins hiding out in odd places.

My thought is that if I am working from home I should be able to reach out and squeeze fiber when I'm stressed.  So the leftovers have ended up in different parts of the room.

My goal for this next move is to find a large cloth-lined wicker basket to corral all of this yarn.  Though I like the occasional comforting scrap of fiber in an unexpected place.


  1. I like the idea of being able to reach out and squeeze a ball of yarn anywhere in the house, but I think the cats would *really* like that idea... and so the yarn and fibre remains sequestered in my room, where the cats can't get at it. :)

  2. I am not looking forward to packing up my stash to go home at the end of the semester not enough room in the bins and suitcases for all my stuff XD
