I look forward to each weeks' challenge and it keeps me focused at a time that my brain feels like I need duct tape to keep everything in! Lol.
This week's Challenge is Spring Cleaning! Normally I avoid anything that utilizes the word "cleaning", but the challenge is a little more detailed... "Spring Cleaning. This week it is time to organize your yarn. How do you do it? By color, type, weight?"
I am OCD - I sort it by all those examples!
My daughter-in-law and I are in the middle of moving into our craft room, so at this moment all the yarn is on cheap plastic shelves with boxes. And that works just fine for now until we work in there for a while and figure out what our "style" of working together is.
The yarn is sorted first by type/weight (in our case mostly Red Heart 4 ply worsted), then by colour.
|Kristy likes to use what I call "the fun yarn". (the bulky yarns on the left)|
And I macrame, so that is on the same shelves too, in smaller boxes.
WIP's and frogging projects are on the bottom shelf.
Here are some of my WIP's, in baggies, boxes, baskets, or clear plastic bags.

|Crocheted towel toppers. This is in a basket so I can just grab and go.|
What about you? How do you store your yarn?
