Knitting Storage

I have been knitting more seriously for almost two years now.  In that time, I’ve accumulated a small stash and quite a few works in progress.

Right now, my projects, yarn and needles are pretty well organized.

This is my yarn stash. I have them separated in plastic bags based on nothing specific. I try to keep it so things are easy find, but it’s really not that much so even if I have to pull everything out of the basket, it all goes back quickly. It’s stored in our guest room.

TB bagTom Bihn has a wide variety of bags but I had never even heard about the company until I got this bag. I learned that I got this highly coveted knitting bag and it’s clear why. It’s made of durable fabric that can withstand needle and scissor pokes. And the inside holds so much!

It has two zippered areas where I keep my circular needles and DPNs. And it comes with one yarn sack that can clip into the bag.
