Keeping the yarn organized was a challenge as our stash grew. At first, we just shoved it into blue Rubbermaid bins, then into an empty bookcase, then added an empty shoe organizer. When we moved a year ago, we de-stashed and gave away all our partially-used skeins to our crochet group. Then we organized the yarn by weight and packed it.
Now, our guest room doubles as the yarn room. We have more worsted then anything else, so it is organized by brand/color in our little bookcase and in one-and-a-half metal CD stands. The bulky yarns are in the other half of a CD stand.
