One BIG WIP

I joined the Organized Knitting Club. This didn't mean that I was organized, but that I wanted to be organized. So February was devoted to organizing my stash.
I had some great "before" pictures, but managed to accidently delete them (note to self: 'format' on a digital camera does not apply to the picture). I do have one for you to see:












I had started the process of clearing this rack and hanging my WIPs on it in clear plastic bags. The proceses continued and involved moving the rack to the other side of the room (after moving the microwave cabinet that was there) so I had access to both sides.
















Top shelf has WIPs.












The lower shelf has designated yarn for WIP-to-be. I haven't figured out what's going on the lowest shelves yet.











All my free range yarn is will be in or on this sliding-glass-door cabinet, arranged by color.



Larger lots of yarn, mostly bought for a specific project, like a sweater, are still in labeled bins.

So that's what I've been doing. Still to come organizing the following: needles; patterns; books; computer area; and sewing area.
Buckle up. This may be a long, bumpy flight!

"Free range yarn". I can visualise it roaming around the house!

I'm so glad someone else has to do their sewing area - it gives me such hope for myself.

That's fantastic. All those tidy cat buckets crack me up - we get those too.
