Wine or Yarn?

I like wine and I like yarn so had to laugh when I saw this posted awhile back and thought I'd share it with you. Now it looks like you could store quite a bit of yarn instead of wine........provided you had the right size skeins/cakes.  I'm curious what size that actually is.  Thoughts?  I suppose this could even be double duty.........you could have both wine and yarn together in one place?  This looks to be in an actual yarn shop given the hanks hanging beside it, though I suppose this could be someone's craft room, living room, end of the bedroom or whatever.

I always get a kick out of seeing how people store or display their lovely yarns, hope you do as well.

  1. That is interesting. You got it good now, wine and yarn~ See, you are special :). I like wine too!

    1. Come on over Lisa, it's rare for me to be stitching without sipping. Unless, it's a difficult or new stitch I'm knitting that requires me to concentrate more.

  2. This is a great idea but I start to smile thinking of the yarn and wine together. If one had some wine while you were crocheting, I wonder how the blanket would look:)

    1. Crocheting I'm ok, kinitting simple patterns I'm ok....trying something new or complicated...not so much, lol Birgit, those things I do without wine.

    1. People truly are very creative with their ideas.

  4. Looks like a good idea to me,. Both the wine and the yarn. A little wine always goes well with my crocheting, need all the help I can get.
    Have a good day everyone,. Cold and rainy here. Could use some sunshine, along with my wine :+)

    1. Right you are a day without wine is like a day without sunshine!

  5. I love the wine rack and think it looks pretty with the yarn in it. Great idea!

    1. I think this would be a cool thing to have and use for both. You could move it because it's not a permanent thing like shelves can be. I'm actually thinking about pricing one of these.

  6. This is too cool! I always love looking at how others store their yarn.

  7. That is a clever way to display yarn. I have mine in clear plastic bins. Keeps the yarn clean, but not as easy to see what I have.

    1. Pro's and con's to everything, but somehow this appeals to me. Guess it would be best if one went through their yarn quickly, which I really don't.

  8. This is such a creative way to store yarn. It would be fun to alternate with bottles of wine.


    1. I agree Julie, and thanks for the visit!

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
