I love to crochet! I think anyone with a penchant for crocheting or knitting enjoys buying yarn when it is on sale. I mean, really, who doesn’t love a good bargain?
After a bit of time, all these skeins of yarn turn into a stash, which then usually ends up controlling a room or closet. I was no different and my yarns were stored in various grocery bags and canvas totes in my office: on the floor, in corners and in the closet. It was way out of control until a couple of years ago when I realized I needed some kind of organization. So I decided to turn my office closet into a yarn closet:
As you can see, I hit on the idea of using hanging shelves that are meant to store sweaters and other articles of clothing. I sorted the yarn by color (mostly) and have been super pleased with how well this has worked. Some of the sections house variegated color yarns and some contain ongoing projects that I pick up once in a while in between other projects.
It always makes me happy to be able to see everything at once, especially when I’m planning a new crochet project.
