Organization in the making...

A very BIG thank you to Anne http://www.knitspot.com/ Hanson and many others who are so generously sharing their organizatonal/or lack thereof/ methods for storing their stash

I was one of the relics who kept my "wee little delicate bundles" in GInormous rubbermade totes (the kind you could fit 2 or 3 bodies in)! The totes took up a shit-load of room and the thought of hauling them out and digging for a "wee little delicate bundle" of sock yarn was so daunting I literally DREADED the task ~ therefore ~ avoided the task ~ therefore ~ just bought MORE yarn ~not that there's anything wrong with that!

I bought 16 of the 16qt rubbermaid totes and Wha~la! Life is Good!
Another 6 should just about do it.

And here is my 1st finished project of 2009!
It is the Top Down Buttons Cardigan from Cabin Fever knit in exactly 2 skeins of Dirdar Snuggly. It is too cute!

K so now I'm sending out an SOS. Can someone direct me or steer me into a VERY specific VERY easy VERY user friendly instructional on how to link my finished projects into my sidebar?!

The cardigan is adorable!

Now that you're so organized, does that mean there'll be less yarn porn ;-) Where's Persian Tiles? Are you going to organize the WIPs too?

Michelle- I envy you your organization. "Shitload" is one of my favorite words.

Love the cardigan too.

Yes, thanks to you and Anne Hanson, I'll be spending more time reorganizing, and less time knitting! Fun!


I would just link my WIP's on the sidebar to the blog entry where you show it off to the world!
