Has spring sprung... I am organizing...

As far as I know, the groundhog saw his shadow!  That means for most of the world we have 6 more weeks of winter, however, we Alaskan's know we have at least 3 more months of winter ahead of us!  None the less I went home last night determined to do a bit of "fiber" organization.  I have been really inspired by blogs lately and have my list that I look at daily.  One of the blogs I recently visited had a wonderful post about her knitting plan this year and how she organized it.  Check out the Yarn Harlot's blog.  All of her posts are GREAT but this one inspired me ...
My organization pertained to my stash as a whole and not just my sock yarn.  The gratifying part of this process was that I only have a very small amount of stash yarn that does not have a purpose.  It was nice to see that I really do have a reason for buying that beautiful fiber that I love to knit with!
 This was my theory on the organization process...  look at your yarn, did you buy it with a pattern in mind, find the pattern, buy the pattern, make a copy of the pattern and put it in a zippy with the yarn and needles if you can spare them.  Bada bing.  You want a new project, grab a bag.


  1. yikes...and I thought the 6 more weeks here in wisconsin was somewhat are a saint with 3 more months ahead of you yet...

  2. Your little baggies look cute :) Doesn't it feel good to be organized? Every once in a awhile I will get all my vintage stuff that is for sale in good order and I always feel waaaay better. Have a great weekend!

  3. LOVE the organizing!!! am even using the baggies for my scrap stuff - embellies and such - great organizing tool :-)

  4. I am a bit more out of control than you are! Mine is all contained in one room though, so that's a start!
