A few weeks ago our family moved into a new house! It was a short move (just up the street from our old house) so we are still in Orange County, California and still in the same school district for our kids. But we feel so blessed to have found a home that fits our family better as the kids grow bigger and my crochet business continues to flourish! Plus we now have enough space for the grandparents to come stay with us for as long as they’d like!
I am so excited to finally have my own studio! A space dedicated to my yarn and crochet that doesn’t have to be shared with anything else. A space where I can close a door and work on video and photo tutorials. A space with an abundance of natural light. And a space where I can welcome friends in to craft and crochet with me!
My yarn room is at the front of our house with a beautiful bay window (*pinch me* this is a dream come true!) and has just enough room for a craft table and a set of bookcases to hold my yarn stash! When I pull into the driveway you can see the wall of rainbow color-coordinated yarn gleaming at you. It’s so inspiring and inviting!
This picture was taken at night looking into the bay window from the driveway.
It all started with THESE Ikea Billy Bookcases! Ready to be filled with yarn!
I love seeing my yarn organized by color and since most of my collection is currently worsted weight yarn, it made the most sense to sort by color instead of brand or weight.
Say hi to my Giant Jellyfish! You can find the pattern HERE 🙂
My craft table is also from Ikea (the NORDEN table). It is the perfect surface for photos and video and such a great spot to craft, crochet, or just type up a blog post! It has 3 storage drawers on either side that are a great size for hooks and crochet accessories! Each side folds down which makes it great for moving around or out of the way.
I have a few wire metal storage cubes (purchased HERE) that hold several of my crochet blankets and a shelf I picked up from HomeGoods where I can keep my business papers, crochet magazines, and more. OH! And another Ikea MUST HAVE is the RASKOG Cart! I am currently storing my works-in-progress and soon-to-be used yarn 🙂 But there were days when it was even more functional. You can see my RASKOG post HERE. Also, the female dress form is from Amazon (HERE) and I use it to display my latest shawls or wraps!
I still have a lot more organizing to do but I couldn’t wait any longer to show you guys my new yarn room! I hope you have enjoyed seeing it and feel inspired! I will continue to post pictures as I get it more in order!
