Do you have an out-of-control yarn stash? Have you purchased way more yarn than you ever intended to and are feeling a little overwhelmed and have no idea what to do with it all? Are you struggling with how to store all the yarn you’ve accumulated? No judgement! We’ve all been there. It can be so easy to get carried away when you are in a store surrounded by yarn. If this sounds like you and you’re looking for ways to get a handle on your yarn stash, Marie Greene's newest book, "The Joy of Yarn,” might be just what you need.

Marie Greene is a well-known knitwear designer and knitting educator. She has written several books, including the very popular "Seamless Knit Sweaters in Two Weeks.” She is also the founder of Knit Camp, which is an online community for knitters worldwide where you can find friends to knit with online and in person; there are knit-a-longs, a resource library, patterns, tutorials, and so much more included with the subscription, and there’s even a handy app for both iOS and Android.

“The Joy of Yarn”

In her newest book, “The Joy of Yarn,” Marie Greene shares solutions for organizing, curating, and using the yarn you have in your own yarn stash.

Through her book, you’ll rediscover joy in your yarn stash, learn how to be inspired by the yarn you already have, how to shop your stash, and how to assess and organize it all. She also shares various different storage ideas for your yarn and how to shop smarter and stay organized in the future, plus so many other helpful tips and tricks. This will be one book you’ll want to refer back to over and over again.

Patterns To Help You Stash Bust

This book also features ten brand-new patterns to help you work through some of your stash.

You can learn how to use the color wheel to knit the Color Theory socks, cowl, or shawl. If you enjoy knitting colorwork, there’s a pattern for a hat as well as a children’s and adult’s sweater.

Maybe you have a special single skein of yarn that you’ve been holding on to but don’t know what to make with it; try the One Skein Beanie (my favorite pattern in the book), which features a beautiful Dandelion stitch. There are also patterns for mittens, hats, and a Mohair cowl to help you bust through your stash, and with 10 different patterns to choose from, you're likely to find one you love!

Even though the patterns in this book are for knitters, it would still be a great resource for any fiber enthusiast. You can find it at bookstores, and it’s available as an e-book on Amazon as well. Or you can order a signed copy here.
