Bonus Episode - Craft Room Re-do



Got all my yarn/fiber put away tonight with the help of Stephanie (BusyMind on Rav)!

  1. For straight needles, consider drawer dividers- Target has ones that will link together and stack decently. For circulars, I've yet to find anything that works as well as plastic bags- maybe one of the KnitPicky binders with the pockets?

  3. Your craft room looks amazing! Great job!

    I store my circulars in labeled ziploc baggies (2 mm in one, 2.25 mm in the next one, etc) All the baggies are put in order in a litte square basket I found at ikea. My KP interchangeable set lives in its own wallet thing I sewed (inspired by something I saw on etsy) with pockets for the tips and wider pockets for the cables and stuff. I also sewed a roll thing for my dpns (which I hardly ever use these days but at least I know where they are!) I don't use straights ever so I don't have any ideas for those, except that they look pretty in vases but I don't know how practical that is :-)

  4. I went to sporting goods store and bought a fishing bait binder to hold my circulars. Cheaper than knitting supplies. Holds reinforced zip top bags inside a zippered binder. Perfect.

  5. What a dream! We can only imagine how much work it was. Thanks for the tour. I am trying to find a system of small plastic drawers to store my circs. I have them in plastic sleeves in a binder right now.

  7. the room looks great! Love the shelves, makes me want to do something with my craft room but that will not happen. Gizmo, my dog, growled the whole time your dog was barking in the background, it was hilarious. Love your videocasts!!!

  8. Okay, you have more yarn than my lys!!! Kidding, but this is so wonderful and you'll be able to really look through and decide what yarn to use!! Inspiring to see the b/f and after pics.

  9. Yay! It's done and looks lovely!
    I like the way you put the expensive yarn on the top shelf, like a bar. :)

    For my circs I bought on of the Namaste circular case. It was $20, so why not.

    I am looking forward to the episode filmed in your new space.
    Keep it up! Your doing a great job.

  11. i love your new set up! i have two shelves like yours, but espresso brown. i think the white shows off the yarn much better:) i am having trouble keeping my yarn from tumbling out when i open the doors though! and i have an entire shelf dedicated to wollemeise as well. it is special:)

  12. this looks so fabulous and thanks for sharing! I know how much work it is as I had to set up my craft room when we moved from overseas 2 years ago. We are lucky and have an IKEA within 45 minutes, so I have mostly open deep shelves for books and knicknacks, and a glass bookshelf for keeping costume dolls etc dust free. Yarn unfortunately is in tubs in the closet ...

    BUT ... what are you doing to keep your yarn "safe" LOL? I have little slivers of Irish spring soap everywhere, and have gotten used to the smell!

  13. It looks really nice! I love the cabinets! :)

  14. I feel so much better about my stash! If my bf complains I'll show that to him and tell him he's lucky my stash doesn't need a room for itself. (Though I'd love a craft room!)

  15. Love the cabinets! Where did you get those?

  16. Carin........ you suck, I want your stash room SO bad, this makes me highly anticipate my older brother moving out so I can have his room to share with my mom... my yarn room and her sewing room. I loved the idea of taking off the doors of the closet and making that into a nook. can't wait to see it featured as I journey through your years of knitting.
    P.S. Ive watched almost a year today :)
