Wow! What a crazy 31 days of organizing we’ve had. Thanks everyone for following along. I hope you’ve found some of our tips helpful. Also thanks to everyone who left a tip or question in the comments during this series. It helped me to cover some of the organizational issues you’ve been struggling with. And many of you had really useful and creative organizational tips to share.

I’ve compiled a list below of the 31 organizing tasks and tips with quick links to each post. Some of you didn’t have time to join in on the organizing last month. Bookmark the list in your browser or your knitting & crochet Pinterest boards so it’ll be easy to find later when you want to tackle your knitting and crochet organization. Also if your organization falls apart over time, this will be a good list to go through each January to whip things back into shape.

    Such wonderful information! I sat in my “knit room” for a couple of Sundays and input my books into Raverly as well as my stash. Now I go into my stash online and search for projects on Raverly – especially for my 1 or 2 ball supplies. I love knitting quick cowls with interesting patterns!

    Thanks for the 31 days of organization! I read every one, and just last night I put them all on my Pinterest board so that I’d have a place to review them as I attempt to get my yarn/craft room organized.
