Lily Chin's top 10 ways to hide the Stash!!

1. Tape a bag of yarn to the underside of all the chairs - who'll know???

2. Put a slip cover over a bag of yarn, stick it on the couch, call it a pillow.

3. Remove the cushions of the couch, stuff with yarn instead.

4. There are narrow books that don't reach all the way to the back of the bookshelves. That dead space behind such books is good for several skeins.

5. Do you wear ALL of your shoes at the same time? No, stick a skein of yarn in each unworn shoe (boots are great for this very reason).

6. Everyone has clothes in the closet that are never, ever worn. Sew up the bottoms of the garments,insert yarn. Do not forget to sew up bottoms of sleeves. There's enough in each sleeve for more than a bag's worth.

7.Never cook, only order take-out or go to restaurants. You've now got the whole oven!

8.Look to the china cabinet. That large soup tureen? Maybe a bag. Large teapot? A few balls. Covered dish? The same.

9. The freezer is advantageous for fuzzies such as angora or mohair. Make sure to place in plastic bag first. This is known as the high-fiber diet!

10. Get a really large box and fill it up with lots and lots of yarn. Put a tablecloth over it. Voila, instant table (but you can't get your feet underneath it).

This is taken from the lovely "For the Love of Knitting", ed Kari Cornell; really made me smile (and yes, nod my head!)


  1. Love these ideas! Gives me a lot more space for yarn stashing!

  2. creative. and so much healthier than stashing chocolate all over the house!
