Yet more re-organising…

Yesterday I decided to have another stash toss and try to get some better level of organisation into my reasonably sized yarn collection…

Here it is at the point where it got worse before getting better…

I also included mum’s old stash, but as it’s mostly sorted by colour and none of it has ball bands, it’s basically stayed in the same box…

So, here’s everything, now sorted.

sorted

Top left is sock & laceweight, top right (a bigger box) is double knitting, bottom right is aran, chunky & shaggy, bottom left is unknown/other project bags, notions & needles. And the box on the floor is mum’s stash and UFOs which I will address… one day. Some unfelted felted bags and squares to go towards a baby/knee blanket. Which one of those it turns out to be probably depends on how long it takes me to finish it off…

The good news is that there is now one less box in the spare room (which is Steve’s office, and also in serious need of some tidying up) and I’m taking up one less box in the playroom shelves. Go me.

Plus, I’ve had several good ideas about what I can do with what’s there. Which, if I’m honest, was a large part of the point.

UPDATE: DAMMIT I just found 3 more project bags by the side of my desk which have stuff in them. At least one of them is a finished thing, so that doesn’t need to find a home. Neverending story…
