...how quickly a stash grows! At Christmas time, one basket was enough for all my cotton and cotton blend yarns which I use to trim pillowcases -- well, not any more! I have been keeping my ever-expanding collection in baskets until a few days ago, when I decided it was time to move out of the baskets and into something that will keep them more organized and most importantly... tangle-free! Have you noticed that yarn kept in containers of any kind ends up very tangled; every time you dip your hand in there, all the yarn ends have a way of finding each other and getting entangled! I was talking to my friend (another serious yarn addict) about it the other day and she blames this mess on mischievous fairies who come an play with the yarn when no one is watching!
Hopefully my new yarn arrangement will lead to less tangles and will keep those pesky fairies at bay! I find it is also nice to be able to see all of my balls in one shot without having to look for them and pull them out of baskets. I actually love staring at the rainbow of colors (cheap entertainment for a color fiend like me!). How about you -- have you found good solutions for storing yarn?
