Just a break down for you so that you can see better how I did this, the top left is all my cotton/cotton blends by color and next to it is all my cotton/cotton blends that is either variegated or ombre. Just below those two shelves are all of my wool and wool blends in exactly the same fashion. The top right shelf and the three shelves below it are all my acrylic variegated or ombre skeins. All the other shelves, starting with the one that is second down on the left, are all my acrylics skeins sorted by color.
I LOVE how it all came together. The clear plastic drawer to the left of the yarn shelves is what wouldn't fit. The stuff below is all gift giving stuff, bags, tissue paper, cards, that sort of stuff. In the desks drawers to the right is *most* of my material and notions, ribbon, thread etc. All my crochet, knitting and sewing books are stacked on the shelves there. It looks sooooo pretty in this room! I want to just sit in it and stare at it's lovely organization all day long!
We'll chat again soon.
