Ok, so I don't have much of a stash seeing as how I only picked up knitting again a few months ago, but I still have issues storing it. It hasn't been substantial enough to warrant a place of its own yet, but it's been growing these past few months.
So, I took the leap and bought one of those collapsible cloth cube boxes. I didn't nab a picture of it as of yet, but I think you know the kind I'm talking about. Usually you see them in furniture magazines, intermingled with other household objects in a shelf with "cubbies".
I also did something that I've been excited about for a little while.
During that whole wave of New Year's posts, I got a glimpse at some of the older posts of bloggers that I follow but haven't gotten around to perusing their older material. Among these was this post, from Pumpkin Spins, which just blew my mind.
The idea was to use QR codes to label yarn. Brilliant! However, in my head I could just imagine all those dangling tags getting twisted together or the paper ripped off and needing to be replaced, so I took it a step further.
I also labeled some swatches, as you can see, just tying on the tags normally.
The only problem I have with this method is that right now I can make and print all my QR codes at once, when in the future I'm likely going to be labeling one or two at a time. It feels like a waste of paper to me. Oh the things I do for tidiness!
Do you have any neat organizing tricks? It doesn't have to be limited to stash organization!
