Tidy mind, tidy stitches.

Today’s topic is organization.


When it comes to my craft supplies, there isn’t much of an organizational system. I try to keep everything in a few designated areas like this drawer, but I still end up with yarn and needles everywhere. My desk frequently gets over taken by it all.


I can’t even keep my yarn organized when I’m using it. I’m constantly untangling knots. My color work in progress is pretty frightening looking.


The only things I really keep organized are my hard drives. Here we have finished designs on my external hard drive, all of my crafty photos that are labeled according to project, and then there is my design work. Everything is nice and easy to find, unlike my knitting needles.

  1. Oh my those are some really scary knots… I would get so frustrated if that happened to me XD

  2. My knitting things also seem to end up everywhere! Now, I just leave them out, because I know I’ll need them again soon!

    I love the second picture!

  3. I sure wish I could organize my computer like that but for some reason the simple things overwhelm me more than the complicated sometimes.
    Nice post!

  4. Because of my trouble cat, I have to keep my knitting closed up in one room of my place, which actually prevents me from tidying up. When I don’t see it, it’s not a problem! I like that you keep your knitting lying around, because you can work on it whenever you’re inspired! Organized chaos is a good thing, in my book. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Ha, I’m kind of the same! My stuff goes all over the place but my computer is really tidy with everything neatly sorted into folders and with clear labels.. Too tidy, according to the boyfriend, who complains when he has to open more than 4 folders to get to something he needs. Homework is sometimes as far as 8 layers down. But at least I know where it all is!

  6. I wonder if the hard drive gives you any real choice to “mess it up?” One must be tidy on the ‘puter, eh? ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Gah. I know so many people with terrifying hard drives. My sister’s is especially bad. Things are labeled inconsistently and everything ends up in one or two big folders. One of my friends knows where nothing is and just uses the search function every time he wants something. It makes me uncomfortable just thinking about it.

  7. I seriously envy your file organization. I just started designing a few months ago and my computer is a frightening mess of photos, pdfs and wips. Kudos to you ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Oh my, scary melty knitting!
