    My yarn closet is my fav, I used shelves that were available and then I cut up boxes to use as bins. I like colors together so that is how I organize and under that I put the wool and cotton together. I'll post pictures later. I also bought a small tackle box and I'll post it soon.

    My sister gave me an Oakley backpack...so it's really sturdy and has great compartments...and it's not large like a regular backpack; So I keep all my hooks and similar supplies in there....I have a snickers tin which is just long enough to hold my using w/ this project right now on my table...which also fits in the backpack...this way I just grab and go; So it fits pencils for graphs, hooks of all sizes, safety pins, needles etc all in neat little compartments....

    Ok, this is prolly WAY more info than youz wanted...................

    This morning, I moved ALL my BEADING mags to the bookcase next to me and placed all my YARN in the little bookcase that used to have my Bead mags............ya following? LOL

    Now all my crochet/yarn/knitting is in one place and all my bead items are in one place. Except for of course the yarn and beads that come together, but I'll cope, LOLOL
