      That's about half of my stash in the sitting room, equal to that in the dining room, plus the 9 or so bags in my bedroom, heaven knows how much in the junk room and loft, all stored indoors because my 8' x 6' shed is bulging at the seams. I have bipolar disorder which results in me being rather tunnel visioned in my spending. Meds are now working I think so I must not buy wool ... I must not buy wool ... I must not ... oooh WOOL!!! Lol.

      I made three of these cabinets to display my mother's hand painted china after she died, but I'm afraid my stash takes up more than half of her former bedroom, and that's in addition to my 'what I'm going to knit next' cupboard. People in our village know I knit charity blankets and keep giving me auntie's or Grannie's stash and it's all got a bit out of hand. I'd love to be able to store mine like yours. Yarn is as good as a work of art, pleasing to look at with the thrill of anticipation. I even have a stash waiting for me in Australia ready to knit for the grandchildren next visit!

      I'd thought about taking pics of my stash and posting them. After seeing how neat yours is I'm not sure if I should :)

      Wow, that's very organised! I think my stash is larger, but as I have it all stowed in vacuum bags it is hard to tell. This cupboard must be great inspiration for your future projects.

      That looks great I'm jealous of your storage space and what you have in it. Only trouble is I love sewing to so I'd need another for the fabric stash too!
