I had an epiphany last night. I spent Saturday cleaning my closet and pulling out my stash. Last fall I had organized my stash. I was inspired by my Sock Summit’s purchases. As I laid everything out on the living room floor, I pulled up Ravelry.
I have been very slow catching on to the tools available to me in Ravelry. I just learned how to search for projects based on the yarn weight. I decided to see what I could find to use up my collection of lace yarns. After clicking on the Patterns button on the main Ravelry page, I put “lace weight yarn” in the Search block.
That’s when I realized that organizing my stash isn’t really the challenge – it’s the assigning of projects that takes time and a lot of consideration. Without a plan, my stash would go back into my closet looking much more appealing but likely to sit there forgotten. A terrible fate for yarns I love.
I still need to make notes in my Springpad system, but look what I found for my lace yarn collection.
So many choices from yarns I already have in my home!
