A Neat Knitting Nook

Any knitters out there? Here's a great idea of how to organize your stash. A converted wine cellar makes each skein instantly visible by color and texture:

Of course, that leaves the question of where to put the wine. Tough choices. I guess it's all in your priorities.

Since my storage is limited to the space under my bed, I cram all my yarn in a Rubbermaid sweater box and use Ravelry to organize my stash. I can not even begin to go into all the ways Ravelry benefits knitters through free patterns, keeping track of what yarn you've used, a forum for getting knitting help, and how to display your projects and materials. It is the social network site, or facebook, for knitters. Yes, it's totally dorky, but sign up now. Just do it. Please. It will change your life.

In the meantime, if you have an open space in your wine cellar, claim a cubby for projects. It's still too early to abandon hope on New Year's resolutions, so get organized!

Now I just need to find a way to fit a wine rack under my bed.


  1. How have I never looked you up on Ravelry!!?!? You are the one who got me started, after all!

  2. I can't find you! I'm chlibmaria - look me up!
