Today Karen has dared to Flash Her Stash. Or at least a little bit of her stash. She's taken this brave action to demonstrate one method of storing yarn. The majority of Karen's yarn is stored in clear plastic bins, and colored bins on shelves in her yarn room. It goes to reason that if your yarn is neatly organized and stored it will be easier to find what you need, and remember what you have.
This works really well for some people. Other people, like Karen, prefer the adventure of stash diving. When she's contemplating a new project she'll go to her stash and start digging through bins to see if she has the right yarn for the project. Along the way she'll find something she totally forgot she had. Or discovers a partially completed project. Soon her quest for a specific yarn becomes an adventurous trip down memory lane.
When asked if she has plans to organize her yarn differently she says, “No. It can be frustrating sometimes if I'm in a hurry and looking for something specific. But it works for me.”
How do you store your stash? Do you think it reflects anything about you or the way you knit/crochet? Do you wish you organized it differently? Or are you one of those rare crafters that doesn't have a stash?
