My Yarn Stash

Clara at Knitter's Review is asking how her readers organize their stash. So I thought it would be fun for those that stop by here to see that too. Because I'm so visual I have to be able to see what yarn I have. For that reason I use semi-transparent plastic containers for yarn and fiber storage. The containers keep out dust but allow me to see what's what. The yarn is organized by color and I have a subset of sock yarn that's also arranged by color. There's enough sock yarn to knit 30 pairs of socks! To some that might seem extreme but I know that somewhere out there someone is saying, "30 pairs! What a piddly amount of yarn! Buy more yarn!" :o)

What you don't see is my handspun yarn and the assorted crochet cottons. Needless to say there is plenty of yarn here to keep me busy for quite awhile!
