What does your stash look like? As a crafter, you know exactly what I mean by the word stash. It’s a little different for each of us but regardless of what makes up the stash I think we all struggle a little bit with the best way to organize that stash in our space. I have the opportunity today to write a post about the benefits of a color label printer in the home and I wanted to use that opportunity to share some tips on using labeling to organize your stash.

Stash Problem #1: Fio, Fio, Everywhere There’s Yarn

DSC03812 500x375 5 Ways to Use a Color Label Printer to Organize Your Crochet Stash

I don’t keep a lot of clutter around my house. Na verdade, one of my favorite things to do is to go through my home and declutter it, limpar fisicamente o velho para abraçar o novo de uma forma que eu acho que cria um espaço mental para que assim. Minha única exceção a esta enorme: fio. Eu amo fio. Adoro colecionar fio, usando fios, exibindo fio. Tenho mais fio em minha casa do que eu poderia usar este ano, apesar de eu praticamente não comprar qualquer fio em 2012 e não ter comprado algum em tudo em 2013. Então, para mim, o estoque é o fio.

Para a maior parte, Eu gosto de realmente ter o meu fio onde eu possa vê-lo. Eu comprei um monte de recipientes vintage-y à procura de metal, como washbuckets e latas de lixo exclusivo e taças de metal, e eu organizei meu fio esconderijo nestas por cor. Os vários azuis, roxos e cinzas são o que estão atualmente em exposição nestes recipientes de metal ao redor da minha casa.

The thing is that to have all of this yarn out on display would be overwhelming and also impractical. So I still have a large stash of yarn that needs to be stored. I have a yarn closet for this. The yarn goes into bags and sealed containers, organized by color. And this is where a color label printer would work really well for me; I could print out labels for different types of yarn (peso, fibra, etc) and print those in the color of the yarn that’s in that particular bag or box, slap the label on the exterior of the container and be able to easily see what bag I want inside of my yarn closet for any given project.

Stash Problem #2: Where to Put Those WIPs and UFOs.

Some of you may already have a terrific sense of organization when it comes to your yarn but perhaps your problem is what to do with the WIPs. A lot of crocheters keep tons and tons of different projects going at once. And I think almost all of us have those ones we started, definitely want to finish someday but just aren’t feeling right now. Where should they go?

If you’re lucky enough to have a craft room then you can put those unfinished pieces into a section of your craft room. Se não, you may have to store them in various drawers and closets. Putting them into bags is really smart, especially if you’re organized enough to include all of the following in those bags:

  • The hook you started with
  • The entire set of yarn you need for the complete project
  • O padrão

Se você não estiver usando sacos transparentes, então você pode querer usar um rotulador de colocar uma nota sobre o WIP do lado de fora do saco de modo que você pode facilmente recordar o que é quando você está olhando para ele novamente no futuro. Marcando seus projetos em sacos como este também pode ser muito útil se você está tomando vários WIPs com você viagens e quer embalá-los para facilitar a recuperação.

Stash Problem #3: Ganchos e Noções

Em janeiro eu pedi alguns “questões de crochê do dia” relacionada com ganchos incluindo como organizá-los e quantos foi demais. As respostas são diferentes para todos. Se você é uma daquelas pessoas que tem centenas de crochê, então isso pode ser parte do seu problema de estoque.

Muitas pessoas gostam de exibir seus crochê. Contudo, you may need to put some of your crochet hooks away in storage. Figure out whether you want to organize them by brand, by set, by the material they’re constructed from or by size and then separate them into different containers. Label those clearly so that it’s easy for you to grab the hook you want next time you’re about to start a project!

Stash Problem #4: Padrões, Magazines and Books

Your yarn is put away in neatly labeled and sealed containers. Your hooks are easy to find. Your WIPs and UFOs are manageable. But you’ve got a book problem. Your house is overflowing with crochet books, crochet magazines and even printed out crochet patterns.

Here are some tips:

  • Consider going digital. Você pode organizar os padrões de crochê em seu computador e usar ferramentas como Ravelry para torná-lo fácil de encontrar os padrões que você quer quando você quer que eles!
  • Faça a pasta padrão de crochet para quem solta impressa padrões. Se você tiver muitos deles, várias pastas que são rotulados no exterior para facilitar a organização pode ser uma boa escolha.
  • Separa-se os livros de crochet e revistas nas suas funções. Em outras palavras, manter suas enciclopédias crochê e costura dicionários juntos e seus livros padrão crochê juntos. Você mantém revistas antigas, porque você os ama, mas na verdade, não usar os padrões? Aqueles pode estar em um espaço separado dos mais recentes problemas de revistas de crochê que você tem que completar padrões de orelhudo-dog.
  • Gire o que está fora de seu espaço físico. You’re probably only going to work on a few projects at a time so just keep a few crochet pattern books out for that inspiration. Box the others up, label the box and stick it away. Every few months, rotate that out and put the new inspiration in your space!

Stash Problem #5: More Stuff than Space

I think the problem for many of us isn’t the specific type of crochet items and notions and tools that we collect but the fact that we have more of those things than we really have space for them. I know that’s definitely the case for a lot of us urban crafty girls here in San Francisco where storage space is so incredibly limited. I advocate streamlining and decluttering as much as possible then after that finding a good labeling system that allows you to easily find what you’re looking for. Craft projects are a lot more fun if the preparation and clean-up for them is simplified!

What makes up the bulk of disorganization in your yarn stash? How can you make a small step to solve that issue today?

Organization is an ongoing project-I live in the East Bay with husband in 542 sq ft and another 120 for a studio/workspace/tools and storage in the back. Creativity is the key. Using whatever containers come free, and they do regularly, I shift and change where the supplies live and how they are stowed as the projects finish and new ones begin, becoming WIPs in their own right. I love the constant ebb and flow-I grew up in tidal zones and cannot release awareness of the moon cycles. You have thrown us some helpful ideas in this article; obrigado.

@lyndamotvos I am continually updating my organization for sure, based on what materials I have at the time and what my creative priorities are. It's definitely a challenge in the small spaces of the SF Bay Area but I like that the limited space forces me to be praticular about what I keep and how I use it. Love your "ebb and flow" descrição!
