"I can play around with different color combos for projects by placing different skeins together in their jars and living with it for a while to see if I still like the combo."

What a fabulous idea, naughtyknits! I am going to copy that immediately! So glad you shared that.

I can't imagine sorting yarn by color. I went to a yarn store once that had theirs displayed that way and it was completely useless for finding what I wanted. Mine is sorted by weight (and other categories, such as WIPs, UFOs, assigned yarn with patterns, etc.) in large plastic see-through bins, sealed against moths and dog hair (no matter how much I wash and brush her, my German shepherd produces so much loose hair that she has dog hair on her dog hair).

When my youngest moved out, I decided to turn her room into my knitting/spinning room-- resurrected some old Ikea shelving, bought bins to hold all my yarn, reassigned a bookcase for my fiber books, put my needles in a pretty vase, organized all my spinning fiber and fleeces in the closet. (I refuse to post a picture and expose the size of my stash.) It was wonderful to have it all in one place. I left the bed in there for use as a guest room. Then my daughter moved back in... *sigh* I had to clear the closet and can no longer spread out work on the desk and have overflowed to the rest of the house again. But she does have to share the room with my yarn.

I make cards and I have found small tool storage from Bunnings ideal for small items as the drawers can be pulled out. Paper in drawers. Recipe holders are great for holding a book or magazine with a design I'm using. It's a matter of using anything that works. I like the idea of a pegboard as my desk can get cluttered.
