    I guess we lost the thread form the "other" site.

    Ladies and gentleman, let's start over!
    Don't be shy! Post pictures of your stash.
    I don't think I will post my messy stash again.
    I just post as I add to it. Was going to copy and paste the old thread but it was too big.

    Guess we have to start talking and fill it up!

      Sadly, all of my stash is in big, plastic bins. Wouldn't make for very interesting photos, lol.

        Plastic bags in Plastic Bins. I am sure someone thinks that over-kill, but I am really afraid of Moths. Most people put theirs into color categories, I am a weight category gal.

        I am a weighty woman too! lol. My fabric stash is sorted by color, butt it would never have occurred to me to sort my yarn by color. Sorting by weight makes much more sense to this ole brain!

      Mine is too scattered to take nice pictures right now, planning a clean up in the next few weeks after it’s organized and labeled

          My stash is underwhelming by most standards. I have leftovers that are 3-4 times as much as these skeins. We moved twice in two years and downsized so I have been trying to knit only from stash and only buy new for a specific project if there is nothing in my stash.

            How do you all categorize your stash? By color, by fiber, by weight? I have tried different methods and haven't been completely satisfied with any of them.

              Weight. I get too frustrated trying to match colors and weight.

              My stash is super mess now. But when it was organized, skeins, balls were by colors. From white to black.
              Cones were in corners from light to dark too. And boxes had yarn I didn't care much about.
              Now I have yarn in boxes so I can stack it and cones falling over.
              I hope to get to it some day again. I hoard yarn for retirement so for now I don't care what it looks like. I have no time.
              I know where most yarn is but it is becoming challenge to get to it!

              I like having it by color because when I decide on making something, my first is always what color I want it. Weight I decide after. It could be single yarn or double combined together so it is easier to see what is available in particular color and work with it.

              I keep the wool separate, most of mine is acrylic worsted,(sorted by complete skeins and small balls) keep the baby yarn separate, cones separate for machine knitting (all this is in bins and boxes upstairs) and keep the sock yarn available downstairs - cause you never know when the urge will hit to knit a sock, LOL

              I wish I could plop right smack in the middle of your stash. What fun to see all the goodies you must have.

            sherryglover1 I wish I had knitting buddy! Could sit and play for days in there! I tried few months ago without much progress. Just filling up boxes. It needs to be sorted again.

              I love my stash. Sadly, it is in plastic boxes, and I can't see it very well.
              Sometimes I unpack it, just so I can admire it spread out on the bed. And the floor. And down the hallway....
              It's awesome when I find skeins I forgot I had! It's like finding money in the pocket of a coat you haven't worn in months

                I go and pick up some yarn and bring it in the bedroom-I knit in the bed and play around with some swatching and trying stitches just to see what I come up with and then, I put it all away, back in the stash cave.It is relaxing to play with yarn!

              Thanks for your response on how you organize, luwana and stasher. Mine is stored in plastic bins and drawers, but I think it is multiplying at night when I'm not around!

                Yesterday I saw on Amazon a t-shirt with this legend: "Buying yarn and using it are two different hobbies."
                How true! No matter how big, no matter how messy one's stash, who can resist adding yet another yummy to it?

                  My goal is to live long enough to knit all the yarn in my stash, but that will never happen because it's like the little mill that ground salt . . . it just keeps growing.

                My yarn is not displayed in any attractive way (bags, boxes and plastic bins). It would be way too much work to try and photograph my stash for you.

                I tend to group my yarns according to fiber. Cottons here, acrylics there, wools another place...

                  I have all of my stash in large plastic bins. I did download the list into numbers but it's way to large to re-photograph. I organize by weight.
