|Getting yarn organized!|
I decided that I needed to get a little more organized in the studio with my millions of coloured yarns. I was finding it a little challenging to work, especially seeing I have been working on a series of small works that need various colours. Often when I work on a large piece, I gather all the colours I need at the start, like creating my palette and just leave them out to work on. This method just wasn't working for me with these small works.
I went and purchased a whole bunch of small clear containers for my small cones of yarn. Each container fits about 30 cones. I then colour coded the yarns into groupings that I use often; dark grey tones, lighter grey tones, flesh tones and colour groups.
So far it's working well and means that I can find things quickly and also keep ahead of my yarn stock. I did discover that I have a lot of yellow yarn currently!!!
