Organizing My Yarn/Crochet Shelf

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a good week so far! Yesterday, I cleaned up and organized my yarn shelf, and I took some photos, so I thought that this would make a good post for today!! πŸ˜ƒ

Okay, so this is how it looked like before I cleaned it. It definitely needs to be organized and cleaned up a bit. There are boxes of yarn, and projects I’m working on everywhere, so…yeah. 😬 I just organized it a bit ago. I don’t know how it got so messy so quick!
Here’s the top shelf. It’s not too bad, but it definitely needs to be neatened up a little bit.
Here’s the middle shelf. There are some crochet and knitting books on the left, a crochet bag, and then some yarn on the right.
Here’s the bottom shelf. There’s just some random yarn, and some projects I’m working on.
Here are a few boxes full of yarn and projects I’m currently working on, sitting on the floor.
Okay, so I gathered up all of my yarn and used my yarn winder to make them neater. Here’s all of the yarn I have! It’s actually not as much as I thought!
Here is the top shelf after I organized and cleaned it up! There’s a mug of crochet hooks on the left, with a frontline hero bear I made behind it (here’s the pattern), and then, there’s a little container thingy with drawers, where I store my keychains and stitch markers, and I put a little crochet octopus on top (here is the pattern!). Then, I have a tile, and a little crochet rabbit (pattern here.)
Here’s the right side of this shelf. I have two containers, the one on the left side with stitch markers, safety pins, and a few other things. I also have a little crochet jellyfish sitting on top (pattern for it here). I have a little display with the date, which I just got at dollar tree, and then, the container on the right has some buttons, as well as crochet thread.
Here’s the middle shelf! On the left are all of my crochet books, and a few about knitting, and most of my yarn is on the right!!
And, here’s the bottom shelf! On the left, I have a crochet bag with some more yarn, which I’m using to make a blanket right now, in the box in the middle is some yarn that I share with my sister, and on the right, I’m storing some of the projects I’m currently working on!
Haha, here’s all the yarn tangles I had to throw away. πŸ˜… I don’t have much patience with untangling yarn…
And, here’s the finished shelf!! I definitely think that it looks better now!!

What’s My Crochet Personality? Doing a Quiz

Hello everyone! How are you guys doing? I’d love to hear about what you’ve been up to lately in the comments! πŸ˜ƒ

For today’s post, I am doing a quiz! I saw Gelina do a few quizzes recently on her blog, and that kind of gave me the inspiration for this post, so thanks Gelina!

I looked up a crochet quiz, and found this one: “Crochet personality – which one are you? Take our quiz and find out!” I thought it sounded fun, so I’m going to be doing that for today’s post.

This is a really fun quiz!! Here’s the link to the quiz from Happily Hooked, so if you want to do it, go ahead! I’d love to hear what you get in the comments!
I normally finish 2-4 projects per week. Sometimes it’s more if I make more small things, like keychains, and sometimes it’s less if I’m working on something bigger like a blanket. But on average, probably 2-4!
I buy the most acrylic, but cotton’s my favorite overall!
I actually don’t have that much yarn (maybe because I don’t have enough money to buy much yarnπŸ˜†) but I do loooove it!!
I’ve had a few family members and friends buy things from me, but I don’t really have a business or anything.
I love making granny squares, and have actually thought of making a whole bunch and doing a blanket! I just wouldn’t use the colors in the picture. Maybe I’d do different shades of blue! That would look so nice!
I usually just buy my yarn from Walmart! πŸ˜‚
I didn’t know what that was until I looked it up just now. The definition is: “Yarn bombing is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colorful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn or fiber rather than paint or chalk.” (From Wikipedia.)
I follow a few crocheters and designers, yes, so I chose the second one!

And I got……

I actually think that this kind of is like me. I love photographing my crocheted projects and I love blogging about crochet!!

Thank you so much for reading! I’d love to hear what you got in the comments, or what your answers would have been to the different questions!! Again, here is the link to the quiz I did today! Okay, well, see you on Wednesday! Bye!! ☺

2021 Crocheter’s Bingo!

Hey everyone! Hope you liked my last post! For today, I’m going to be posting a crochet bingo that I made! You can screenshot this and do it.

Yay! I got a bingo!

#1: Crocheted a granny square project βœ” Yep, I made a little baby blanket for one of my cousins out of different granny squares for Christmas.

#2: Used a material you don’t usually use βœ–οΈ Nope. I usually just use acrylic, polyester, or cotton yarn.

#3: Organized stash βœ–οΈ I haven’t gotten to that yet, but I’ll be organizing my yarn and finished projects once my room is all organized and my dad finishes the flooring.

#4: Created a pattern βœ” Yes! I made the Crochet Couch Pocket Pattern, which I posted on my blog. I made a few others that I didn’t post on my blog.

#5: Made any holiday related pattern βœ” I made a few things for Easter.

#6: Crocheted a gift for someone βœ” I made a gift for my sister’s birthday, for my brother’s birthday, and I’ve started a few Christmas gifts!

#7: Frogged a project βœ–οΈ No, I don’t think so. If you don’t know, frogging a project is ripping it all out after you’ve crocheted a little bit.

#8: Finished a project from 2020 βœ” There are just a few things that I started last year, and finished this year. Most of them were crocheted probably in January or February.

#9: Made a clothing item βœ” Yep, I made a few tops and a cardigan this year!

#10: Used lace weight yarn βœ” Yep, I made a bookmark for my mom for mother’s day!

#11: Mastered a new stitch βœ–οΈ I have tried a few new stitches this year, but I wouldn’t say I mastered them.

#12: Stayed up too late crocheting βœ–οΈ Not this year. But last year, the night before Christmas, I stayed up until about midnight finishing crocheted gifts. I share a room with my sister, and she wanted to go to bed, so I had to try to crochet without any light!

#13: Free space! βœ”

#14: Crocheted a stash buster project βœ–οΈ A stash busting project is a crochet project that uses up a lot of yarn. I don’t think that I made any this year, but last year (when my yarn stash was out of control) I made a blanket with different stripes of colors.

#15: Bought more yarn that you didn’t need βœ” What crocheter doesn’t!  πŸ˜‚

#16: Taught someone to crochet  βœ” I taught some of my little siblings to crochet.

#17: Sold an item βœ” Yep. A little while ago, I sold a baby hat to my aunt who just had a baby.

#18: Bought a crochet item βœ–οΈ I just always search for free crochet patterns to use.

#19: Made a design from a movie/tv show/book βœ–οΈ Not yet. But when I get more yarn, I might make that cowl that Katniss wore in Catching Fire.

#20: Thrown away tangled yarn βœ” Yes. When it is hopelessly tangles, I just throw it away. I don’t have the patience to untangle it!

#21: Listened to a crochet podcast βœ” Yes, I listen to The BHooked Podcast sometimes. I would recommend it to anyone who likes to knit or crochet. It’s a good thing to do while crocheting, too!

#22: Made your first ever… βœ” If you don’t get what this space means, it means that you made your first ever thing. So, if you made your first ever blanket this year, you could check it off! I made my first ever top this year!

#23: Went to a crochet class βœ–οΈ No, I just learn to crochet from watching YouTube or finding blog posts about it.

#24: Started holiday gifts before August βœ–οΈ No. I started some in August, but not before. I did start to plan out what I would make for different people before then, but I didn’t start them yet.

#25: Used your favorite yarn βœ” Yes! I love the Roll With it Tweed Yarn! I actually just finished designing a project with it, and I hope to post the pattern on Wednesday!

I hope you like my bingo! I had a fun time creating it!
